Essential Content.

Kraus’ towering intellect and curiosity more than make up for his arrogance and super abundant awkwardness.

He’s brings great minds and contributors to the table and has the heft and power to engage them fully and energetically.

Essential content.

Irritating host often talking over interesting guests

Just listening to Daniel Schrag interview. I find myself shouting at the host to Shut up and let the guest make his points without interruption. Very good guest in spite of the annoying interruptions

Hedgepeth ,

Krauss was an ardent defender of Jeffrey Epstein; consider an alternative podcasts

I don't deny Krauss is a great scientist and communicator. However, prior to Epstein's death, Krauss is on the record ardently defending Epstein's actions. Add on to that, ample evidence of Krauss's sexual harrasment of women and I think that should be ample reason to consider an alternative podcasts. There are a never ending supply out there.
