Wow!

I am so blown away by what I feel I need to catch up on in regard to the underlying history of how our country, and others operate. This podcast also inadvertently explains the dynamics of our current political predicament. Thank you!

Really smooth listen

I love the discussion here, and the production value is really strong too. It never feels like a big lift, but when I am done, I feel like I have gotten a little bit smarter every time. Strong rec from me.

Insane

Nothing based on facts. Just liberal emotion. This podcast is what’s wrong with America. Full of great ideas to go against.

Money in the moon

Great content - awesome points at the end about our funding choices going forward! Totally agree. (Content gets 5 stars!)HOWEVER, the episode was difficult to follow and absorb due to the nearly constant giggling and what sounded like 2 ten-year-olds laughing & punching each other on a cool class trip. I am seriously glad that these people are happy in their work (and I don’t want every science reporter to sound like Richard Attenborough), but please understand that valley girl (and boy) inflections don’t age well. I’m truly sorry to sound this critical, because I appreciate VOX and have come to DEPEND on the thoughtful and intelligent discussions offered on many of your productions.Ezra is a national treasure! 🖖🏼(In case it matters, I am a 64 year-old woman from NJ)

Delightful and interesting

I love this podcast and it shapes so many thoughts on the ultra-wealthy that I hadn’t thought on before. This is a must-listen for all people curious in future planning.

Interesting Ideas!

I really enjoy listening to this podcast and the ideas it presents are worth considering! It does have a fairly liberal slant (in its discussion of charter schools, for example) but every production has its own biases. Still 100% a great listen!

Using stories and trump soundclips to push an agenda.

Pretty garbage attempt at trying to manipulate your emotions instead of presenting facts, to make a point.

News you can use

Future Perfect really is news you can use - specifically for those who wish to make the world better. There is no better source of information that is actionable.

Something exciting

This podcast makes me think how to be good. The people they bring on are very interesting and they make me see the world differently. Effective altruism is so interesting to me and I love hearing people’s stories behind it.
