Wonderful listen

For my job I basically walk all day, this is the perfect podcast for my day. I enjoy the topics and explanations so well. I’m recommending this podcast to anyone I know and the topics are great for conversations. Love it

The only small annoying thing is Romans constant laugh with guests, it’s extremely distracting. Even if it comes natural just edit it out because it seems so insincere and distracting.

Really a response to another review.

As a Canadian I fully support banning installing gas in all new build housing. Why the hell not? Heat pumps and resistance heating can keep a house warm. Need more electricity? Invest in generation, transmission and maybe build houses that can maintain an internal temperature. … Anyway despite the beautiful Oakland California bias, 99pi is a good show.

big fan for more than 5 years!

LOVE this podcast, Roman & crew feel like my nerdy pals at this point I love how they do storytelling and the range of stories.
Great for curious minds!
