Customer Reviews

Flashy production no depth

There are so many quality podcasts these days from the likes of WNYC, current and former NPR folks. Although this podcast covers extremely fascinating topics, it lacks depth and fails to measure up to its fellow podcasts.

One of my favorite Morning Edition segments is now a podcast??

I'm on board! Excited to hear expanded coverage of the types of interesting stories Shankar Vedantam explores in his segment on NPR's "Morning Edition"! An aside: I love Shankar's easy banter with Steve Inskeep!


Was looking forward to this as the previews sounded interesting. Turned out the previews was the best part on the show. The forced humor was nauseating and the campy show tune at the end was 4 minutes of my life I'll never get back. I kept hoping it would get better but it just went from bad to horrible. I can't even stick around to see if ep2 will be any better as it just left me meh.
