Insightful discoveries

Probing conversations on critical issues. Fresh approaches and guests. Substance not flash.

Intellectualism at last

This is a great show with an incredible history. Thoughtful discourse on a wide range of subjects with interesting guests. I hope it continues for another 50+ years.

Snore Fest

I am all about enlightenment but delivery is everything. It's almost as if the host and his guest are reading from a script. Q&A rehearsed. He doesn't have the charisma that makes me want to listen. I'm surprised that the Washington Post raved about this podcast. Where is the emotion? Where is the personality? While some prefer to get their information on a cold dish with no salt. I prefer my news hot and steamy, with lots of spices.

A good example is Congressional Dish and the Daily Show. Personality matters; or listeners will fall asleep. Or maybe it's just me.
