Wonder program with the exception of the interviewer. He's so out of date in his attitudes he can barely conceal his personal prejudices. It's galling when he puts his uninformed dare I say misogynist spin on things. Offensive.
This podcast is genuinely fantastic. So well researched, but in an engaging format, answering questions and having discussion where there would be done in a textbook or other academic source. Absolutely my favorite podcast!
The subjects are good and guests are interesting but Matthew Parris is one of the worst interviewers. I find his line of questioning to be facile and obnoxious, especially when he asks questions about a person he does not like.
Matthew Parris is an objective, engaging, and entertaining interviewer. Some of the episodes are expectedly hit-or-miss based on ones interest in the topic at hand, but almost all are worth a listen. A top-notch podcast in every way.
