Intelligent and amusing- I highly recommend!
It is so enjoyable to listen two people from very different fields with varied backgrounds discuss an array of cultural topics. Its great to hear MJ and Jeppe’s perspectives on topics I am interested in, and to have my eyes opened to books, films, and shows that I have never heard of. I’m constantly amazed by their array of knowledge-yet it is presented in a non-pretentious, easy to swallow way.
I am a loyal listener and highly recommend this podcast!
