A Needed Forum
The concept of the show is wise: have conversations with world's leading experts about social science-- the host is best versed in development and addiction, but touches on religion, philosophy and other sciences.
The brilliance of it all is the willingness to engage with diverse, divergent, and even controversial opinions in the name of social progress
Depth and Weight
Cutting edge topics and guests are chosen skillfully to engage listeners in meaningful ways by expanding awareness and pushing the boundaries of progress. Zach conducts excellent interviews with no nonsense questions. Awesome.
Interesting topics and intelligent conversation
I listen to a lot of podcasts and this new podcast has already become one of my favorites. I like it because it is enjoyable and it also makes me think about issues from new perspectives. The topics are fresh and sometimes controversial but the discussions are civil. The host is well prepared with good questions and it is clear he has researched the subject being discussed. The guests are knowledgable and engaging.
