So good

I love this podcast

DanniSerrano ,

It’s my monthly present

This podcast is something I look forward to every last Thursday of every month. John Green has a way of reviewing objects in the Anthropocene that make me feel like he is my best friend that understands how I think and feel despite I will probably never meet him or get to articulate how much this podcast and his vlogs mean to me. Even if you don’t agree with his way of thinking. His voice can always calm you down when having a bad day

Absolutely dightful

This podcast is absurd. It flips between a profound sense of perspective and meaning and the extreme pettiness of everyday life. 5 stars.
