Too much fluff

Too much dramatization! The information can easily be compressed into three concise episodes. Plus, too many commercials that you have to listen, and this is NPR!

dang dang dang!

I love the mix of fiction and interviews. i’ve never heard a show like this. also that lady at the end with the tips is a riot. i will be recommending this to all my friends.

Failed potential

This show had a lot of potential and I was really excited to listen to it when I found it, especially after reading the related New Yorker article a few years ago, but I was left unimpressed and disappointed. Some of the interviews with scientists and professionals were interesting, but the fake scenario was embarrassingly cheesy. And yes, I know you need ads to make your show, but the whole thing felt like a giant commercial.
