Awesome

Love Ted Talks!

Honest-Feedbackk ,

Low quality podcast for such a big name

Host is underwhelming, content isn’t that interesting and you can get the subscribe info for free online. What is the point of paying?

DonQ69 ,

Twitter? Really?

Posting to the former Twitter during a period of antisemitic support by its owner isn’t a good look. I loved Ted Talks, but have to say no from here on out.
