Amazing! Totally recommend!

This podcast is amazing! Ive been listening for awhile now. Every time a new episode is released my snake sorin and I get all cozy on my bed and listen. The last 3 ant episodes have been my favourites!! They were so fascinating and I never knew how little i knew about ants. Added bonus is you two live in canada (so do i) so it’s cool to here you talk about places i know and use the metric system.

Fun and educational!

So glad my sister-in-law turned me on to this podcast!! She used to work with Olivia and I’m sure was tired of hearing me go on about ACNH 😅! This is my first animal crossing game but I have said time and again how cool it is that all of these things are introduced in the game! And now I can learn even more about these insects, fish, sea creatures and fossils!!
