Six Stars

A smart premise that comes at you from your blind spot. But for all that, I admire John Hodgman's work because I always feel gently included, if that makes sense. John Hodgman starts where the punchline ends. He's at my fantasy dinner table, next to Brian Wilson.

Got boring very quickly

Tried to listen a. Few times, got sick of the rambling. John seems to love his own voice, I don’t. Surprised this is rated 5 stars to be honest
