I bought an iPhone to write this review

Maybe that’s not the only reason I got one, but I am so excited to now be able to say how much I love Dadward and her amazing guests. I’m a nurse and I use all the weird and interesting facts to distract my patients when I’m doing a dressing change or poking em. Nothing like thinking about pumpkins actually being berries or combination poop/egg shoots to keep your mind off of needles popping into your skin. Merci Alie with one L!

I challenge you to find me a better podcast

I have recently started a job that involves a lot of driving (I pick up injured animals for the wildlife rehab I work at, and bring them back to our rehab so they can get the care they need) so I have a lot of spare listening time. Thanks to Alie and Ologies I feel like I have learned so many new things and made an amazing new friend all while at work! If you’re just starting this podcast, prepare yourself for your new addiction! Bufology is definitely my favourite episode, but I’ve loved something about each and every episode I’ve listened to! Alie never stop what you’re doing! Science communication is so important right now and you’re making monumental steps towards helping the not-so-science literate people understand and join in on these conversations. Also please put out more episodes more frequently or direct me to some more podcasts that can teach me new things with a casual conversational feel, because I can’t find any that compare to yours! Thank you for everything you do ❤️
