Great idea, interviewer needs to polish up.

This is a great idea for a concept and not a bad show, but after listening a few times I got really annoyed by the interviewer not letting the guest talk enough and talking too much. I will go back and listen again soon and re-rate if the show improves. Ask about the guest’s work, instead of talking.

Prescription glasses for the mind

When I started wearing glasses I was surprised by all the details that I was missing. Pageau’s ideas have the same effect.

Can't stop listening

I never would have imagined I'd find myself listening to a Christian Orthodox icon carver talk about "the symbolic world". It almost sounds like the definition of boring but wow is it anything but. I'm beginning to see the world from a whole new perspective and cannot listen to these talks fast enough. If you want to start to see deeper meaning in the world, start listening.
