I wanted to like this, I really did. The subject is fascinating, but the podcast suffers from a lot of problems. Foremost are the random order of the topics, which I find difficult to follow (Chronological order isn't required, although it's probably most often the best option. But some sense of why each topic is covered where it is and how they relate is nice.), and the very uncomfortable delivery. The script is read without much enthusiasm or inflection, so it's almost like the podcaster is likely to nod off mid-sentence at any moment. It's just tough to listen to for any length of time.
