Almost great.

Really enjoyed this guy, but gets more and more political as he goes. Bummer.

Dude, cut the slant...turns people off

Came here for knowledge, not your politically-slanted rants. Sick of it! Who cares! After listening to 25+, I find myself skipping large sections of your podcasts because you go on and on about YOUR political views. Keep it focused on the subject at hand. Stop the politics crap, or I’m gone.

It gets thing wrong more than right

He drones on about a topic based on one source. And usually that source is suspect at best. The last one on feature phones was the last straw for me. It’s like this alternative wishcasting history. It reminds me of when people at one time basically insisted that Shakespeare wasn’t written by Shakespeare and went to great lengths to show it had to be someone else. Luckily that narrative died away, much like each of the poor spun narratives on this podcast.

TwentyThousandHertz sent me here, glad he did!

This show is well researched and I can think back on the Online Dating episode and really appreciate the perspectives he brings up and how modern dating is and is not different than yesteryear. I wish Colin all the best and keep up the good work bud!

Love the podcast

This is a great podcast! I found it through 99% Invisible. I took a star off because I wish they used more varied music/songs.

One of my favorite things

This podcast is so great. Colin takes a mundane topic and makes it incredibly interesting. Even if a topic seems like something you would not be interested in you need to listen to it. Colin finds a way to make you want to study it yourself.

Absolutely my favorite podcast!

Let’s know things is my favorite podcast that I listen to! I so look forward to my Tuesday commute because then I know I have an hour of geeking out about cool topics! I recently became a patron and I wish I had been able to do it sooner! Colin always does an amazing job at looking at a subject and getting a bunch of different angles of the story together in one mostly unbiased space! My wife and I love to listen to them together and it always sparks an interesting conversation about whatever the episode was on that week.

Informative from every minute detail to birds-eye level

I freaking respect Colin so much and think he’s really great at summarizing his research and making it digestible for his listeners. As a hobby researcher myself, I often don’t make time to do these deep dives anymore, but our brains seem to work very similarly, and it’s very comforting/relatable to hear Colin doing fantastic work!

Beautiful

Thoughtful connection of life. Appreciative of Colin’s calm voice and ideas brought to the drawing board. Open minded information on topics that seem far from each other but become more similar as you listen. Thank you Colin for your sharing! You are appreciated.

worth a listen, only podcast I subscribe to

LKT is the only podcast I have set to download new podcasts automatically -- I would consider myself a frequent podcast listener but this is the only show I want to make sure I can listen to regardless of data availability. I love these well produced and researched deep dives. Choosen topics are contemporaneously relevant without being tied to a specific 24hr news cycle. Every episode demonstrates work and contemplation. I personally enjoy Colin's narrative form with it's organic exploration and human focus. IMHO, definitely worth a listen 👂

Morning walk podcast

Colin Wright has satisfied my curiosity on many topics. I've been listening to this podcast on my morning walks via AirPod. He speaks at the perfect pace to make 1.5x speed comfortable for me. I haven't finished any episode but I learned a lot. After listening to 15 episodes, I've come to appreciate Colin's analysis on what's going on in the world. His podcast has sparked a handful of conversations with my friends and family. 🙏 Thank you for taking the time to make this podcast. 4 stars because of content, pace, analysis, and interesting-ness
