In the podcast the host ask questions for all sorts of reasons. In the beginning of the podcast they ask questions that are thought provoking to introduce their big question about generosity and niceness and if it is really within us to truly be generous. When they were interviewing people they were asking questions I felt to get different ideas and outcomes to this answer slowly revealing it to be more complex then originally thought to be. They also used their questions I feel to recap on something that was explained to make a better understanding of for them and the listeners. The story and questions asked in the podcast lead to an ending that gave no definite answer to their big question. Want they did do though was lead you through a train of thought and provoked the thought and curiosity on this subject to its listeners.
