The why factor

Excellent podcast. Well produced. Interesting topics, informative and educational. Fun also.

Educational and Thought Provoking

This podcast opens me up to subjects I would normally not think about as well as going deeper into those which I have spent time studying. I also enjoy the stories which have a bit of humor that are a part of the programming repertoire.

Surprising depth

The producers of this podcast have tackled such a variety of unrelated topics and managed to treat each in great depth (the kind of great depth one can achieve in 25 or 30 minutes). I’m enjoying plowing through the archives and look forward to new episodes
