I love the idea for this podcast, but I hope the producers will make some improvements. I’ve listened to a few episodes and would like to keep giving it a try; however, one of the hosts continually talks over the others, often dominating the conversation with useless interjections, making it about him instead of the issues. His style of banter (which is not characterizable as discourse) draws conversations away from deeper insights and into dead-ends with everyone kind of shrugging off where he has led them, which is often simply the insertion of a punchline instead of a salient point. Also, the homework episode was maddening: toward the end, one of the other hosts admits to helping a little too much on his step-daughter’s grad school letter. No one points out that they’re discussing ethics. Then, the next speaker launches into a critique of a culture of cheating among students...no one points out the irony of the moment, and no one mentions that the students who cheat must get it from somewhere. Overall, this podcast needs so much work—more adept facilitation, and more rigor in analysis for starters.
