wish i could rate it higher

such a great podcast, i look forward to each new episode that comes out!!! if you're someone who finds yourself wondering things like, why does the word magazine refer to a paper or digital periodical with many articles but also is a word used to describe bullets for guns (my ignorance on the topic of guns is showing, pardon me) than this is the show for you!
give it a try, you'll be a smarter person for it and it'll be fun!

Not to my taste

I respect the podcaster’s interest in the topic, and I respect the other reviewers accolades, but regrettably, I find this podcast loquacious. I wish him success for his noble effort and pleasant listening to his followers.
