Terrific and entertaining
My new favorite podcast. National Geographic has been my favorite periodical for years. This podcast is just as terrific as the magazine
I do my morning walks, about 3 miles, and before I realize it, I am done because I am so wrapped in Boyd's podcasts.
I just wish there were more! The first 40 does not interest me.
Intriguing and refreshing!
This is a well put together, entertaining, educational and intriguing podcast. The diversity of the guests and topics covered is absolutely refreshing. Thanks for doing it!!!
