Such a great podcast!

I just discovered this, so pleased. Love Professor McFaul's soothing and intelligent voice -- you're a wonderful interviewer. So smart, low-key, and you stay out of the way and let your subjects talk, while nonetheless very deftly guiding them to fill in context and explain references not everyone might be familiar with. Great guests. Learning a lot. Well done.

Excellent

Great content that’s concise and relevant. My only suggestion is that Dr. McFaul speak up and/or get his own microphone, as he’s barely audible. Thanks for a great program.
