I am really looking forward to this podcast. I enjoyed - and learned from! - the first episode (incidentally, the timing couldn't be better for me); the approach of the two hosts was appreciated and refreshing: science-based, self-reflective, nonjudgmental, and forward-looking. Keep up the good work; I'm enthusiastic for future episodes!
Topic wasn't bad ...
the rest of the production was. The Downton Abby cut-in was the last straw. Most other Slate podcasts are worthwhile, skip this one.
Love this show!
