Great Show

I really loved some of the talks, they were about fascinating people who through their efforts have had distinct and substantial effects on people's lives. They bring people together, create teams bent on improving their own lives and the lives of others. It's inspiring and I overall really enjoyed learning about these people and "their" problems and their create solutions. I say overall because a couple of the people out of all the episodes, I just couldn't figure out why they had won the award. For example there was an artist and a radio jockey. Yes they changed their industry, but compared to the other winners such as the investigative journalist or the inventor. They pale considerably in their contribution to improving humanity's lot.

Can’t listen to this around the kids because of the language

I can’t listen to this book around my kids because of the language. Every so often they drop the F word and for no real reason. Deleting. Sad because it is something I would have liked
