Hi

Great Podcast!
From: A random Canadian

Jimmy McL. ,

Great Balance!

I’m a relatively new listener (started listening in September 2020), but I really love the balance between the light or pop culture intro (especially the movie tie-in or the mythological archetype) and the transition into more hard-nosed science. Love the banter that takes silly ideas seriously, and brings lightness to heavy, technical science.

Oh, and I am really digging the Weirdhouse Cinena episodes! Thank you for reminding me of so many obscure B-movies I haven’t seen in years, and so many more I was not familiar with at all.

Keep up the great work/podcast!
