A pod with an opinion
Richard Lucas has created a new genre of podcasting: the "problem pod". Similar to how Shakespeare mixed social commentary with humor, no gradient is able to move through a steady pace of hot takes while embedding comedy throughout. A worthy addition to the daily commute playlist.
This Podcast is legend
The Shakespeare of podcasting. One day high school students will study these pods.
Philosophical, funny, sharp
No Gradient’s voice grabs you with its intensity and authenticity. Episode with Scotty Holdridge is a must listen.
