I am an American who is a big fan of the content put out by the ABC. This podcast is a stellar example of the kind of quality ABC produces. I listened to almost the entire season in one insomnia-fueled night, and I have to say, it was an excellent partner through the wee hours. I was riveted, fascinated, challenged. It gave me so much to mull over. I love content that makes me more thoughtful, educated, and aware, and this is some of the best out there.
