Very good topics, very boring implementation

The podcast is very informative. They tackle very relevant issues and discuss articles. While I learn a lot from the podcast, I struggle finishing an episode because for some reason, the host is boring. She also does not come across as confident about what she says she believes, although I think it’s just a personality thing. I do enjoy it immensely when she invites engaging speakers. I would, however, rather listen to the podcasts of her guests than her, unfortunately. That said, this podcast is still a good resource to find information on good books or resources.
