Well done

I always learn something new. I am almost done listening to all the back episodes! This has been a great companion on some long drives. The interviewer is thoughtful and insightful. The guest are intelligent and able to speak well about their subject.

Great Lives is a Great Podcast

I just discovered this podcast a few weeks ago and I love it. It covers a wide range of people, some I’ve heard about and many I haven’t. Super interesting and well delivered. Host asks great question and guests are well informed. Both entertaining and educational. Would recommend the listen :)

What is this?

The white-washing of Edward Said in this podcast is disgusting. The language used in this podcast to describe Said further demonizes Palestinians....

Well produced, time well spent

This podcast is done very well. It’s nice that there are no bells and whistles, no time fillers, no ads. Hardly any arrogance. Well done

Matthew Parris is a dinosaur

Wonder program with the exception of the interviewer. He's so out of date in his attitudes he can barely conceal his personal prejudices. It's galling when he puts his uninformed dare I say misogynist spin on things. Offensive.

My favorite podcast

This podcast is genuinely fantastic. So well researched, but in an engaging format, answering questions and having discussion where there would be done in a textbook or other academic source. Absolutely my favorite podcast!

Matthew Parris is awful

The subjects are good and guests are interesting but Matthew Parris is one of the worst interviewers. I find his line of questioning to be facile and obnoxious, especially when he asks questions about a person he does not like.
