There is no video

I watch other video podcasts, including ones by Ted Talks, and they work. This show just appears to not actually have any video served with the audio.

Would change back to 5 stars if not for missing video.

Good content but why the music?

I don’t know why some of the TED audio podcasts feel the need to have random background music - which sometimes feels somewhat incongruous to the content that it is accompanying.

You have some good short pieces but you should really stop putting a music track onto it when the person is talking. It’s one thing when music is added to narrative fiction podcasts but it feels very out of place on your fact-based show.
