An excellent show, a model interview with a ready guest on a subject as pertinent as ever, maybe even more. I learned a lot, a real beginning.

i love the concept and the topic of conversation, but holy cow. i could not get past 2 minutes. the voice of this podcast is super harsh on the ears. this person seems to be forcing a valley girl accent with intense vocal fry at the end of EVERY sentence. I understand if it were a character or...Read full review »

I like this show! But Emily’s voice is just not good for hosting. Great points made. I mean no offense. I bet she’s an excellent reporter. But DEFINITELY not meant for podcasts. I feel bad saying but it’s like she sounds high or drunk? I don’t exactly know what it is.. sentences drowning out and...Read full review »

The constant vocal fry from Emily is like fingernails on a chalkboard. I cannot get through an episode. Either a voice coach or a different host. I've never heard anyone speak with that much constant vocal fry.Read full review »

I appreciate the depth and breadth of Vox interviews. Still listen to Ezra Klein’s new podcast too, and like them both. I just listened to the latest interview about the new podcast “70 over 70”. With parents in this age range, now facing impending end of life due to serious medical issues, it’s...Read full review »

What a wonderful episode! Thanks to both Sean Illing and Max Linsky for what I found to be a great interview. I’m not sure I would have found Max’s ‘70 over 70’ if not for Sean. As someone pushing that age myself, I was so excited, encouraged by what you both had to share and the understanding...Read full review »

Really something to listen to you two young men speak so sweetly about older people: So patronizing. So condescending. Look. You want to name this, “What I Learned From Old Famous People,” fine. You obviously think they’re great— which is fine too. But older people in general? Your whole...Read full review »

The information was interesting, but I could only get through 15 minutes of the rambling run-on sentences coming out of the guests mouth. I wanted to listen to what she said, but I couldn’t follow her disjointed, divergent train of thought.

I enjoyed the wintering episode. The description of the concept of a “slowing down” space is timely and welcome.

The only reason I leave this pod in my library is to listen to the old Ezra episodes. Currently, I hate everything about it, right down to the music.

Why do big media high production value podcast never have show notes? you have an RSS feed where you can put in hyperlinks, links to people’s books, people’s websites, guest’s articles. link link link! It’s so frustrating.
sirmarcos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/10/21
Just give the whole show to one person. Millhiser, Illing, or Dylan Matthews. Tough thing is that Ezra combined the best of all those guys
bigwoozle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/21
Meh
Interesting concept, poor execution. Most conversations lack depth.
Francis McNally via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/21
The podcast is great with interesting subjects but the ads are for Facebook. One of the worst companies on the planet. Hard to support a pod that gets paid by Facebook.
ed2121980 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/21
The podcast itself is well worth listening to, since the guests are always quite interesting and the chosen topics are compelling. This particular episode was fascinating in that the book was written by a trained Jesuit scholar. There is little question that psychedelics have played a major role...Read full review »

I’m aCatholic monk and priest. Thank you all. This was a wonderful Conversations podcast.
MonkMicah via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/21
I love Sean Illing’s interview style and this episode harkens back to his phenomenal Future Perfect work. I’m so glad Brian popped onto my radar through this feed. I can’t wait to read his book. Thank you Vox!
cappy trish via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/21
I def miss Ezra and have followed him over to his new podcast over at nyt but trying to stay with this one. Initially enjoyed that they tried to do twice a week but the last two weeks I’ve noticed the format is changing to just once a week. Further it seems too pegged to politics versus broader...Read full review »

By chance this was my entry into podcast listening and since then I keep coming back to this show because it is one of the podcasts with the most substance in every episode and you are guaranteed to gain some valuable insight/argument on a given topic. It has helped me learn so much about general...Read full review »

This podcast continues to be an outstanding destination for idle ears. Terrific guest Feb. 4.
Citizen 17 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/21
The reboot of this podcast is great. Maybe they’re just doing their best interviews first, but wow, the first few conversations are excellent.
AmpersandPitchfork via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/21
I didn’t think this podcast would be able to survive the loss of as central a figure as Ezra Klein, but I’ve listened to every episode so far since he left and the great news is they are managing to hit the same balance of intelligent, thought provoking and slightly uncomfortable in making you...Read full review »

This was a very disturbing conversation though I felt it was something I needed to hear and pay attention to.
scarletjay via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/21
Put things in perspective in a way no other podcast or medium has for the last four years.
MalinoisGuy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/21
I freaking love Ezra Klein, and was very worried when he said the format is changing. I have to say that the episodes coming out so far are amazing. The talk with Jason Stanley about fascism is mind blowing. I am really excited about the future of this podcast.
techdolphin via Apple Podcasts · Japan · 01/29/21
What happened to the host? Wasn’t this podcast called something completely different? I have no issues with the new person, but I feel like I’ve been bait and switched as the original show was literally titled after the old host. This all of a sudden became something very different from what it was.
Daotat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/28/21
This is where you should post Sean Illing’s interviews! Do it!
Visc@B@rc@1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/28/21
Yikes... I thought Ezra was crazy. The new team has outdone themselves! Unsubscribe!

Sean Rameswaram is the best host, and I’ll listen to anything he introduces. Hopefully he has a few interviews in the future too!
theatmosphere via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/25/21
Compared to Ezra Klein’s interview style and his level of research, the shift this podcast has undergone to “Vox Conversations” just isn’t maintaining the same standard. The conversational nature means we’ve lost the intentional probing and guiding Ezra brought to the dialogues, so as a listener...Read full review »

Gotta say, this one helped me with Ezra withdrawal. Nice job.

The tone and depth of conversation not as good And I know this may seem petty but I can’t stand the sound of the woman’s voice who is interviewing/hosting the podcast
shannonsophia via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/21
Please please stop saying like so much. It’s incredibly distracting. I miss Ezra.
KHVNY via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/21
The Ezra Klein was superb. Vox Conversations, so far, is a disappointment. The wokeness have been turned up and the interviewers seem like they’ve never done podcasting before.
AlAl224422 via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 01/21/21
Just listened to the first episode since Ezra’s departure, and it’s clear that the quality of conversation, preparation, and depth of exploration is continuing on this feed. Look forward to following what is investigated here.
joshworkman via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/21/21
The great days of Vox are past so Ezra’s and Matt’s departures are not surprising. This podcast was fantastic before it became political. Ezra’s best conversations were purely inquisitive, deep, thought provoking (thinking back to the Harari, Gladwell, Gates days of this podcast). This is just...Read full review »

Ezra had been moving the show to be more in line with progressive orthodoxy over the years but still managed to push his guests on some topics. The first post-Ezra episode was gruellingly boring and conforming. Not sticking around.
James (Canada/Texas) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/21
One reason I appreciated Ezra’s show was that he was always in sync with what I was thinking, meaning he asked the questions and follow-ups I wanted, probing the avenues that made long conversations rewarding. His guest curation, while incredible, was never the point. Interviews are a dime a...Read full review »
Chaotik_lord via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/21
Neither Ezra Klein or Sean R consistently use the word fillers “sort of”, “kind of” and “you know” and this recent program was so full of that speech that it became annoying. I will give it one more try and hope it will improve.
LisJoKiHa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/21
Though I appreciate the new voices, I miss Ezra’s measured questions and his willingness to mull over an idea, ask his guests to challenge his viewpoint, and think through thorny issues together. I also loved how the interviews, though they started from very specific points (whether political...Read full review »

First, Thank God Ezra is gone. As the Podcast version of Rachel Maddow, you will get The Truth, but just the half that Ezra (and now other Hosts?) want to hear and let you hear. Second, Ezra has a voice for print. His mushy voice is infuriating, no matter what content he is promoting. In the...Read full review »

Chicago stans Ezra Klein! Please do The Ezra Klein Show justice in this feed. This “Conversations” moment is not meeting expectations.

I know you haven’t found a replacement for Ezra. Hard to replace. But I hope this is what you’re attempting to do. All the best David

The interview wit Olivia Nuzzi was fantastic. Great job Sam!
azisling via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/21
I set my expectations low after Ezra’s departure, but the first episode of Vox Conversations was quite good. Sam Sanders approached his guest with a lighter touch than the outgoing host (which is actually a refreshing change of pace,) but there was still enough substance to scratch that Ezra...Read full review »

I have been a fan of Vox for the last 6 years. I remember when Ezra’s show was new around the 2015. I was so excited to hear the voice of a journalist whom I had been reading online for a while. He did not disappoint. My favorite thing about the show was how he brought on upcoming and established...Read full review »

Just An FYI since this feed is inheriting his rating and reviews. First episode is super different in tone and focus. It’s different and should be assessed separately from former Ezra Klein Show.
