Most underrated podcast

The joke is that everyone these days has a podcast. The Nostalgia Trap sets itself apart though by being academic without sacrificing accessibility. It’s a masterclass in democratizing ideas.

The biographical interviews are wonderful examinations of how people develop their ideas and values and integrate them into their work. David does a great job humanizing his subjects and drawing them into thought provoking conversations.

Like... like, you know, it’s like.... like, like....LIKE

I don’t agree with the host on anything related to politics or economics, but his take on pop culture is interesting and usually entertaining. Most guests are interesting too.

However, this podcast would be much more enjoyable if the host didn’t say “like” so much. When he gets excited, every 4th or 5th word he says is “like”. He sounds like a teenager and it gives me a dull headache.
