Great!

Although it’s been a while since the last episode was released, I have really enjoyed catching up on this podcast. They chose a topic each week, all 4 share a story about what train of thought they were following in order to create their quiz and what was found during their research, and then quiz the other 3 hosts. They are fun, sometimes silly, but always interesting.
