It’s really good!

Ding.

Excellent podcast

I only just found out about this, even though I’ve been a fan of Matt for nearly a decade now. Podcast is excellently presented, funny and just enjoyable to listen to (I may be biased since I am a mathematician), but I think anyone would enjoy this podcast. The topics are interesting and well explained.

Keep it up guys, love your work :)

Great content from great hosts!

This podcast is a perfect example of what’s still good on the internet! Matt and Bec are like jin and yang or two sides of a bracket. Great hosts exploring interesting and deep subjects and topics, the listeners can learn a lot. They are doing this in a hilariously funny way! Thank you!
