Joey’s voice has an easy listening tone. The research he did for Born Yesterday, his other podcast, was phenomenal, so I am looking forward to learning from him again on The Context!
Remarkable in its intelligence & integrity
In today's shallow world, of podcasts, where the lowest common denominator is the rule rather than the exception, Joey Brunell holds the beacon of hope I have longed for. I recommend this podcast wholeheartedly, you will not be disappointed.
Engaging, edifying, and entertaining
Loved the first episode, I got a much deeper understanding of the topic at hand than I had gleaned from the news. The podcast is well-paced, communicating a ton of depth while neither feeling rushed nor dragging on. Eagerly anticipating future episodes.
