Customer Reviews

Brilliant, highly educational and fun

Imagine a global myriad of true experts on global social, economic, political and business topics.

Take many of the best, most able to speak clearly, without jargon and with a pithy but unobtrusive, smiling interviewer to help out.

This is what TED aims for but rarely achieves, perhaps because even the genius needs a Boswell - well informed, sense of humor, giving the genius the center stage but providing the entire supporting cast.

For longer podcasts, "do you stop it and after how long?" is my metric. In a rich field, Alphachatterbox is a reliable winner.

Excellent podcast.

Respectful but incisive and intelligent interview style with a wide range of fascinating interviewees in a casual, in depth format make this a 'must listen'. Highly recommended.
