... and an epidemic. Too many long-winded blowhards whose half-hour content boils down to 1 or 2 sentences.
Maybe that's why I am very picky about what "podcasts" or personalities I listen to. Also why I prefer text articles to everything being in video form.
Right now, there's only one commentator or "talking head" that I listen to -- and that's Dave Cullen. He's actually above-average intelligent, has a lot of actual insight, seems to have tons of great research and information to match, great at big picture/connecting the dots, good at predicting where things are going, is easy to listen to, doesn't push woo-woo (crazy) cօռspιʀαcιҽs, and keeps things simple and to-the-point.
I have a high bar when it comes to listening to some layman. He has to have something real to offer me.
