I've listened to a few episodes and all of the speakers are very interesting, so the content is great. I'd give 5 stars for the content. Only problem is they break every few minutes to announce the station ID, give a weather update (??? this is a podcast / I don't care what the weather was like in Seattle last month !?!?) and other similarly useless info. So subract a star for that for the overall 4-star review. The content is really first rate though, highly recommended.
2 thumbs up !
So great. (There aren't very many breaks, and they aren't a problem at all). I love this podcast.
Just love it!!
Very interesting topic of discussions. Just love the podcasts.
