Very interesting show
I accidentally found this podcast and it is quite awesome. I like the way they answer very difficult scientific questions! I never get tired listening this show!!
Oh the virtue signalling
A lot of good knowledge accompanied by copious amounts of virtue signals. Stick to the science and leave the politics out.
Excellent show that would be better without the comedians
I find having comedians on the show unnecessary and contrived. They are mostly distracting and annoying. I think the show would improve without them.
