Mucus

I am wondering why You decided to "bing" out all of the times that the word MUCUS was used in the last podcast.. it was a great podcast, very interesting. However it was extremely distracting and unsientific to bleep out words like that. It was quite disappointing to hear and I hope in the future you refreain from doing this.

Simply the best.

This podcast is a joy. The Ologists and Dad Ward are lovely and down to earth and I basically want to be best friends with all of them. 10/10 will make you happy.

Who needs friends, anyway?

I only discovered Ologies about a month ago and I’m quickly making my way through the episode catalogue. I spend so much time listening that I accidentally referred to Alie (the host) as “my friend” - as in, “My friend told me that...” I trailed off as I was trying to remember which friend it was, and tried not to appear mortified when I realized... “uh, oh, I lost my train of thought.” I left immediately and will never speak to them again. But at least I have Ologies!
