Thoughtful, compelling reporting

Over the course of three seasons, The uncertain hour has dealt with three issues -- welfare, regulation, and the war on drugs. All three seasons are fantastic but I particularly liked the one on welfare.
Learning 1) how states individually interpret (and, arguably, misinterpret) the best use for welfare dollars, and 2) learning how drug companies have gone to great length to make money at the expense of public health, were the two standout lessons for me from this podcast. I honestly think this is probably one of the best podcasts out there and really encourage you to check it out.

Loved season 1

I went through season 1 in a few days, so interesting I kept listening. Turns out, I didn’t know much about welfare at all. Very well done.
