Should be longer

I love this podcast. I think they talk about some great issues. However my thing is this podcast should be just as long as the Weeds.

They definitely have the subject matter and engaging hosts to make that happen. So why is this only 17 minutes if you exclude the bizillion commercials.

Entertaining but Superficial

Weeds>Worldly. I enjoy the hosts and the banter, but I would love to get more detailed analysis and historical context relating to global affairs.

In the US, I think we are vastly under-informed about foreign affairs, and unfortunately, this podcast is only a drop in the bucket. I think that episodes could comfortably be twice the length, to better our understanding of global issues.

I also miss the short entertaining bits of news at the end of episodes. While less serious, those often led me down the rabbit hole about learning about global corruption (ex. the controversy surrounding Netanyahu’s son, including prostitutes).

Makes you less informed about the world

This podcast only gives one-sided information, and thus actually makes people less informed about the world. It is like Mark Twain said: if you don’t listen you are uninformed — if you do listen you are misinformed.
