Inappropriate air time

Several episodes are good but the narrow minded ill informed opinions of the hosts ruin the show.

Sometimes I actually pee a little bit

I’ve given up listening to sci-gasm when I’m in public .......I am that weird dude that’s got earphones in and laughing loud on public transport.
These guys manage to cover a really wide range of interesting topics, while giving really good info and making it funny AF.
The chemistry between the hosts (no homo) is fantastic as the bounce off each other and stay true to the Aussie way of slaying each other with hilarious insults.
These are the types of blokes you’d wanna have a few beers with at the pub.
Keep up the good work 👍🏼

Funny and accessible

Really enjoyable to listen to. As a non-sciencey person, I find their explanations both funny and accessible. Some great topics.
