Very calming

I like to listen to this podcast while I go to sleep, and so I end up listening to every episode at least twice because I often fall asleep before the end. I’m a somewhat anxious person and it can take me a while to fall asleep, but John’s voice is so soothing that I can fall asleep easily while listening to him talk. Thanks!

Very John green

I’ve wanted to listen to john’s soothing monologues in podcast form ever since discovering vlogbrothers on YouTube, and the numerous subsequent video projects that followed, in which John plays fifa while waxing poetry on life’s various joys and miseries, or teaches us literature and world history. I am thrilled this exists. Even the ads in this podcast are top-quality john green material.

funny & smart in a 20 minute package

Esoteric complexities of grass lawn mashed up with nuanced tastings of the Taco Bell Breakfast menu. Shines an interesting and introspective light into our common experience of the Anthropocene. Always funny, but reflective, and intelligent.
