Not sure how we quantify ‘most’. More than 50% in much of the developed world, looks like (look up percentages I don’t have a good global data set saved - wish I had one! -, but if memory serves …). And yes, not every topic will apply to every person. I’ll take 50% gladly, considering that odds that there is myopia somewhere in the family is going to be higher than 50%. I agree with the prevention angle, though most of endmyopia is about reversing myopia.
Podcast hosts decide in advance whether this discussion is relevant to their audience, so I generally defer to their assessment. Though admittedly I don’t have additional data on things like listen times of our episode vs. others.
You can buy pain killers over the counter that will kill you if you overdose. The government says people can manage that just fine. How un-manageable is figuring out clear curved plastic lenses, compared to that? Can we expect people to not kill themselves with painkillers, but not figure out glasses? Will you notice quite rapidly if you wear the wrong glasses (or none), and make adjustments accordingly?
That’s my attempted point. How are these relatively benign and easy to use things ‘prescriptions’ while plenty of more risky substances are not.
True. Also worth noting that I spend a ton of time and resources getting on these podcasts. From full time staff dealing with contacting and scheduling, to dragging around video and audio gear everywhere, to often early mornings or late evenings to actually be on these shows. I do love feedback and insights since I’m often too close to things - though also bear in mind that none of this adventure is some casual chat that just so happens to have been recorded.
Lots more coming. A fair few of these are listed as “top 1%” by Listennotes, though … grains of salt on all that audience data.
Yea, that one also not my favorite for sure. Though beyond my control.
I mostly pick podcasts with decent audience size, assuming from this that the host knows what he’s doing. Notably I barely get the chance to listen to one or two other episodes fro many given podcast. Often they do have some good nuggets from various other guests.
