Excellent and informative for the interested, open mind

Podcast exploring wide ranging issues and ideas. The hosts are engaging and I find myself drawn into pretty much any topic. Discussions are at high, thoughtful, and stimulating level - including a little touch of humor which helps me feel I am in the room, participating in the conversations.
I have learnt from the podcast a great deal about Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world. Much grist for lunch and dinner table conversations.
