my favorite podcast

I love how The Intelligence a) deals with serious news stories, but is unafraid to be humourous at the same time, b) ties in and adds on to stories from the current issue of the magazine. They delve deep and let listeners learn a whole lot in a relatively short amount of time.

This is honestly a frustrating podcast to listen to. Inane and facile in its economic analysis; constantly fretting about left wing populism more than anything else. It speaks as if it has the script to the world, and if only people would listen we’d be well into a globalist paradise.

Why do I have to have a title, what is the point of that

Interesting, pithy, and well-hosted. It’s just what it purports to be, intelligent.
