Editing fails

Excellent program! Pathetic editing between programming and inserted commercials/promos. Sheesh.

Lovely Podcast

This is a fantastic podcast that’s my go-to for regular, realistic but non-nihilistic exposure to world affairs. My favorite series is My Perfect Country, which selects a different country every episode for an examination of a notable policy that improves its citizens lives in some way. I hope this podcast has exponentially more listeners than it does reviews, because it’s a gem.

Great series!

Very insightful and informative.
