Short, funy, informative.
NPR's HOW TO DO ANYTHING is funny, but always informative and sometimes a bit inspirational at the same time. 'How to save a calf from a death by frostbite' is just as likely a part of the content as 'can I be part-man, part cheetah; no really, can I?' The answer to the cheetah question is 'yes, but it's really neither ethical nor likely without tons of unsuccessful testing [cf. 'ethical' concern]. As for the calf: hot tub or Jacuzzi™.
If you want to, you can write into them and ask "how do I do _____?" Someone wrote in and asked "why does me accidentally spilling cold water in the deep fryer help to loosen the scorched batter at the bottom?" which resulted in an interview with a woman who explained the physics involved in various liquid's density and temperature's influence on them (who then discussed her work consulting with the writers of Breaking Bad, which was fun). Weekly, always less than 30 minutes, typically about 15 or so. Funny but educational.
The silliest, funniest and interesting podcast ever
I truly enjoy How the Do Everything and it's hosts Mike and Ian. While family friendly, they still manage to make me chuckle or even laugh out right when I'm desperately trying to keep a straight face. These guys ask the best questions and look into topics that I've never thought about and yet always applicable in my daily life. They also make the interviewees laugh and make their time worthwhile. Listening to this podcast reminds me that there are good people in this world.
Cute 'N Fun (Even though they ALWAYS Mix Up Star Wars w/ Star Trek!)
Long-time listener, been listening to How to Do Everything for at least three years now and I really enjoy the cute and fun way Ian and Mike share knowledge about -- everything.
Sometimes the advice they give is seriously helpful, most of the time it's tongue-and-cheek, regardless, it's always FUN and INTERESTING to listen to.
Though they (tongue-and-cheekily) always mix up the Star Wars and Star Trek references (being a Trekkie I find this fascinating).
