I love this podcast! There’s soo much information available and it’s conveyed beautifully. I’m soo happy you finally put out another podcast, hopefully won’t have to wait 7/8 years for the next (;.
I personally like how Dr. Sam Webster can be ‘uninterested’ or has forgotten some of the content, as it relates to how some students may feel in a lecture, or even how I felt myself throughout sometimes.
Could be great….
The information in this podcast is clear and well presented by Dr. Newton, but I cannot bear to listen to Sam Webster behave as though he is barely awake and somewhat disinterested in subject matter I care very much about and am trying to learn. For example during the podcast on addiction, Dr. Newton asks him a simple question like, “Do you remember nicotine?” and he acts as though he might have remembered something about nicotine but his foggy half-awake state it is difficult to recall anything more than that there was a discussion some time ago about it. He also sounds as though his own lacklustre attention to the subject is very amusing to him. Sam comes across as disrespectful to the subject matter and to the listeners who care about that subject manner. He slows the discussion down so much that I’ve ended up switching to other podcasts in hope to find a better presentation of the material. Luckily, there are other competing podcasts, but if Dr. Newton should wish to return to this one, I’d be delighted to hear more from him as long as Sam gives more attention to the material and contributes, rather than detracts, from its presentation.
Great stuff. Really, really well presented and informative. More please!!
