Too much irrelevant chatting

I used to listen to the older stuff but it now seems they talk and make jokes for the first 15 minutes. Its a waste of time. It’s as if they forget the question. Would be good if they stayed on the topic and cut out the unfunny jokes. I have found a new podcast now called NASA’s Curious Universe

By far and away the best podcast available.

Love these guys. Great educational content with a subtle twist of lighthearted fun and comedy.
