Insightful

If only major cable news networks focused more on this type of in-depth conversations with experts about issues that matter, instead of the constant bias, sensationalism and opinion-based “journalism.” At least podcasts like this exist! Thank you Yale.

Not Balanced

I genuinely looked forward to checking-out Yale’s academic podcasts. I always enjoy finding new sources of meaningful material to feed my passion for knowledge. At first glance, many of the topics piqued my interest. Unfortunately, the actual experience was disheartening. What happened to critical thought and balanced analysis in academia?! It appears even Yale has succumbed to the leftists. Sigh. (No, I am not alt-right. Just a “classical liberal.”). The star rating was difficult as the non-ideological lectures are good. Sadly, the leftist dominance ruins the rest.
