Good job

Can’t thing of anything negative but you guys are hilarious and it feels like your talking to us not throwing facts at our faces.

Boring inculcation podcast

I am ok with the hard left bias, but the topics are no longer interesting and are just regurgitated left wing talking points. These may be good ideas, but they aren’t worth spreading because they are already out there. Also, they are trying too hard with the diversity and have overshot and it’s a bit awkward when they pass over the obvious expert in a field just to pander to identity politics.
