Good, but

The repetitive background piano is so intrusive that I can’t listen for very long. Why is this necessary

Interesting, easy learning!

I’m a forensic psych student and I plan to get my doctorate one day (I’m still doing my bachelor’s.) This podcast has helped me a lot with learning more about the legal system and it’s relation to psychology. The hosts voice is so soothing and she’s a great speaker, so it’s great for passive learning when you’re busy doing other stuff, as well if you sit back and can actively listen. Can’t wait for more episodes!!
