I enjoyed this episode as a send off for Robert. If I wasn't a Radiolab fan, I might think differently, but it was a nice listen.
Did this one get better after the first 20 minutes? I feel like a deep dive into the personal tastes of a podcast host should be an extra, if it is released at all. I didn't make it all the way through this episode. I just don't care what movie the podcast host liked the most in 2005 or whatever.
I was surprised by this episode. On the one hand I loved how understated this felt. It felt true to Robert's humble nature and was framed in a lovely tribute. On the other hand, Robert leaving my consistent earwaves is really making me sad. He's been a constant presence for so long, and with Jad as the surrogate for the audience, I desperately wanted it to feel bigger, to even more show Robert what he's meant to me as a listener. A feeling I imagine is felt to the nth degree by Jad himself. The episode didn't get there to me. It felt like a small celebration, an anniversary or something similar, instead of a farewell to someone who shaped something so pivotal to me. So for my personal experience, the episode was lovely, and i felt let down that the experience didn't rise to what I feel the occasion calls for.
