Anthropocene Reviewed reviewed

Even though I’ve been a long-time Nerdfighter and a fan of most things John and Hank do, I did not think I would enjoy Anthropocene Reviewed. I heard John talking about it and I just though it wasn’t for me. But after seeing John’s new video about the Broccoli Tree and seeing someone’s comment about how it perfectly fits with this podcast, I decided to give it a try, specifically to the second episode, since the Haley’s comet and Cholera are things experienced internationally, unlike Canadian geese and Dr.Pepper. (I am Czech) I was astonished how John can draw me in his reviews, feeling like I’m listening to a literary piece. The secnd episode left me in a state of melancholy and amazement. So I decided to listen to the other one, that talked about things unknown to me. But it didn’t mattered. I don’t need to know the things reviewed in order to enjoy this podcast. Because even though it talks about real particular things, it also talks about humanity and universals we all know.
I give Anthropocene Reviewed five stars.
