I used to enjoy the ideas and the quality of speakers from the SWF; however, of late, I have experienced great disappointment. The level is similar to high school students and the intellectual stimulation and sharing of deep and profound ideas and insights seems to be a thing of the past.

The interviewer for Norman Ohler (author of Blitzed) sounded disinterested and clearly did not read the book before sitting down with the author. A great disservice to the Festival.

Listening to this podcast allows me to be in the presence of our greatest humans and ideas, all without leaving home. Fabulous.
