Ratings and Reviews
IQ2 is a great program.
This is an excellent place to start research or new learning on various topics of all kinds. I’ve been listening for years. Recommended it to all professionals.
An increase in educated voters, civil discourse, and a higher caliber of debate are desperately needed both in the US and the rest of the free world. Intelligence Squared advances these goals in an incredibly entertaining fashion.
No point to this app
I'm a longtime listener to IQ2 - a real fan. I downloaded the app with glee, then deleted it within the hour.
It offers far fewer features than my (or any) podcast app, such as adjustable playback speed, locking or saving favorite episodes, etc, but most notable is that it does not permit downloading for unconnected playback. Not unusual in an elitist, affluent, discriminatory, NYC-centric group. But is that what IQ2 wants to project? Dunno.
Well, I do not live where there is unlimited and uninterruptible internet connectivity. Here is a suggested debate topic: "Might the assumptions & conventions of wealthy, urban US tech developers lead to a new kind of stratification of American (or world) society or is it merely a continuation of an existing historic pattern?"
Or maybe the developers were just too lazy to overcome some arcane licensing issue regarding control of recorded content?
