Fun to listen to!

I look forward to hearing Katie every week. Interesting and funny, this podcast is really enjoyable. Favorite episode so far: Corvids.

Chill Stimulation

Interesting and fun but also a nice change of pace from daily stresses. Katie is super prepared with info, thoughtful presentation, and puns!

Health and education oriented ,

Quietly hilarious and super interesting

Quirky and fascinating information delivered by a clearly very intelligent host with guests chosen to match her pace and sense of humour. Never disappoints!
For sensitive listeners: swears are “quack”ed out but you can still tell what the word was, and sexual/anatomical information is not avoided when relevant.
