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!!
Couldn't get into it. Interesting topics, but not presented in a way that makes me care or want to listen. Also, not her fault, but really not a fan of the host's voice - makes unpleasant to listen (esp. since the episodes are so long).
Fascinating topics (mostly) but the vocal fry makes this podcast unlistenable
Sheds light on subjects I never thought to think about before, like the evolution of artwork in hotels and video dating. Insightful and amusing
This is one of the few podcasts I listen to that I like to listen to a second time. These deep dives into recent popular culture history are entertaining and enlightening. Highly recommended.
