Great topics

Very interesting podcast. Episode 3 is hard to listen to with the interviewer interjecting every 2 seconds.

Could we dial back the wokeness a bit

If you’re woke you might be into this podcast. You can get some information and get your political ideology reinforced all in one show. Look, I’m on the left but I tune into podcasts like this to learn new things and to hear interesting discussions from knowledgeable people. I'm not tuning in for a sermon on white guilt. Trying to mix intellectual conversations with schoolmarm finger wagging gets old really fast.

The truth is if you care about social justice issue (hosts obviously do), lecturing your audience and demonizing people based on their genetics are some of the worst ways to cover these issues. People who aren’t already converted are just going to tune out.

In any case, I really do prefer my political shows and my science/idea shows to be separate.

Interesting Thought Provoking Topics

I love the deep dive and discussion around important topics but while trying to listen to episode 3 I became overwhelming annoyed by the constant interuptions from the interviewer. If those were edited out this would be near perfect.
