I was excited to start listening to this podcast. Now when I heard an episode on vitamin D it made me doubt the content that Wired writes/talks about and now im too sceptical to follow the Wired on any platform in fear they actually provide guesses not facts. I am a clinical professional and when I heard them repeatedly say that vitamin D can be obtained from leafy greens especially spinach I was shocked about their lack of knowledge. Went to check an article by them about the same topic and yep there it was again. Could not find any contact information to ask them directly so the only way to raise awareness was through here

Can’t Stop Listening!

I absolutely adore this podcast. Not only do I enjoy the journalism, the topics, the discussion, the though provoking probes, etc., but I have also become emotionally invested in the cast members. I sincerely enjoy tuning in to hear more of their interpersonal banter, witty quips and each of their individual view points shared in an intellectual, yet consistently humorous fashion. So glad I stumbled upon this podcast. Thank you for producing!
