Enjoyable and thought-provoking
I'm really impressed with the podcast so far. I find it fresh, engaging and thought-provoking.
A substantial and informative podcast
I was relieved to find out that the people who do this podcast have done dozens and dozens of radio shows on CiTR in Vancouver. Otherwise, the insanely high calibre from a brand new endeavor would seem uncanny.
I especially appreciate the non-flashy buy professional production values. Easy to listen to, interesting, and carefully put-together.
A smart podcast.
Great research, great stories
I love this podcast. It’s a cool combination of really interesting, topical academic research and engaging stories about real people. What else do you need, really?
