Fantastic for anyone with any interest in human nature or culture, and hits just the right balance between silly and meaningful. Covers a ton of different topics, and even if you think you may not be interested in an episode, it's likely to take you on journeys you didn't anticipate. Almost every episode has a moral or broader theme exemplified by the topic, and I appreciate that Willa goes out of the way to talk to the audience about what bigger lessons she's extrapolated from the stories.
I've been binging this show lately and every episode is a winner. From the unique story choices, to the thoughtful writing, and the solid as a rock hosting from Willa Paskin, Decoder Ring is a new favorite. I only feel bad for having ignored it for so long.
Love this podcast!! The research is tops! Great podcast host, great voice & topics are fascinating!! Wish it was on more frequently!!
