interesting topics and guests, but there is very little, if any, critical analysis of the proposed treatments and theories. i would classify this as entertainment and general interest

couldn't relate to the attitude towards the guests, who are sometimes amazing ppl. it seemed downright disrespectful at times. interviewing them is a privilege, not the other way around. also very salesy and full of commercials.
