    "The best radio download"

    Overall

    A highly rec. radio show, especially for downloaders like me because it doesn"t outdate (unlike any NPR episode) and has a greater intellectual depth than most. (e.g. American Life). The major critiques you may read are that they mainly inverview book authors. This is true, but not for sales pitches, rather because these people have someting interesting to say and can add more depth and flavor to an interview than impromtu subjects or news related clips. All in all the best radio show for variety, human interest and with good depth. No not all episodes will interest you 8/10 are very good.

  • "Far more hits than misses."

    5 of 5 helpful votes

    I've been subscribing to TTBOOK for months now, and I have to say that I (generally) enjoy the show.

    There are some segments that are as boring as bat-droppings ... but I'd say I find about 80% of the segments worth listening to.

    I use the program as a 'diversion' as I take my daily walk - and sometimes I have to keep walking until an item finishes - the perambulatory equivalent of what NPR calls a 'driveway moment', I guess.

    It's certainly more consistent than This American Life, and is timeless when compared to ATC or Morning Edition - which date badly if you don't listen with a day or so of broadcast.

    Overall, I'd put it at around 4 stars.

Radio that encourages people to think, not just regurgitate what talking heads think. Well-researched and highly-produced interviews form the core of the program. It introduces you to people and ideas that you will not see on morning TV or hear on your local morning zoo.

    What does today's sci-fi mean for our real-life future? Cyberpunk author Neal Stephenson argues that it's time to get over our love of dystopia. A class at MIT searches sci-fi classics for technologies they can invent right now, although maybe they shouldn't. Geoengineers take a tip from Carl Sagan – who saw a green future for Mars – to see if we can save Earth. And we meet some scientists who think that if we ever want to see the stars, we'd better start building the starship.
