Holly legendโ€™s thoughts

Hello the people of short and curly i love your podcasts because you add humour and facts together its really entertaining i love the questions too also I would love if you make some episodes about:

1. Fantasy if you could find some ethics in that?

2. People hating cats for no reason

3. Do we have the right to use animals for our owns motives

Review and request

Hi Carl, Matt and Molly, my name is Maya and I am ten years old. I love your podcast so much, itโ€™s so funny and immersive, and when I listen to it itโ€™s so fun I barely even know Iโ€™m learning. My younger brother, Rรฉmy and I listen to it every time in the car. Can you do a podcast about the environment and how humans have changed it. ๐Ÿ˜
