This is one of the 3 or 4 podcasts that I really look forward to. I have never been disappointed. Even the older episodes are good and frequently still pertinent.
My only complaint is about one of the commercials. There is one for Amazon that is introduced by a lecture on consumerism. I wasn’t that offended the first time I heard it although I thought it was patronizing - now when I hear it I feel like deleting the whole podcast, except I’m the one who would be punished because I like the dang show’s content so much. My appeal is “lose the script for that Amazon ad and write a new one, please”.
Aside from that trivial and petty complaint, I recommend this podcast 100%. It does not lecture or nag, it informs. The presentation is engaging and riveting and, at times, enraging. Jay (the host? - not sure if that is the correct word) finds these fascinating people and provides access to their thoughts/ideas/facts on many different topics so that the listeners don’t have to dig around on the internet looking for it. Towards the end of the show, Jay offers many concrete ways that listeners can take action and actually DO something to advance those concerns most important to them.
In short, download this and listen to it. You will not regret it :)
