While there are cautions about judging a book by its cover, their web site was my second point of contact for them (your link lauding their content was the first.) It left a terrible first impression. I'm left with the question, "If their website is so clueless and user-hostile, what's the podcast like?"

I'll download an episode to see if it's better than the web site. To their credit, they have that option for each episode.
The social illusion reigns to-day upon all the heaped-up ruins of the past, and to it belongs the future. The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduce them. Gustav Le Bon, The Crowd, 1895 (from the French)
