Best podcast in the known universe!
Great guests. Immature hosts.
The snickering and often offensive interruption of quality scientific guests waters down this podcast. I think that they're trying to make science more pallatable by turning it into a cartoon and that's just it: you end up with cartoon science. Disappointing style.
I get the impression that the guests are taken back to high school memories where they have to quietly wait for the guffaws and idle foolery to stop in between asking or making intelligent points.
This is the best show, but Chuck is the WORST.
He’s the only person, in studio or listening, who laughs at his “comedy”.
