Great Content!

Despite maybe the absolute worst theme music, and the occasionally pedantic hosts, the show is really good.

Hey hosts, now that UFO’s have been confirmed, does that change your mind about some of your bad takes?

Love the show!

The first comment I could see was dissing the theme music and I just had to write and say that I personally love it. Makes me excited to learn something and I want it for my alarm in the morning. Keep up the great job guys!
