I always WANT to like Parcast podcasts but their narrators are so cheesy and overdone, I can't handle it. Topics are always intriguing but I feel like I'm listening to a bad soap opera.

I really like this one. Well researched, well made, and interesting topics that aren't widely known. It's unfortunate that it's part of Parcast, as that was acquired by Spotify - so this pod will likely disappear soon.
