Educational and entertaining! How life should be

Fantastic podcast, it’s funny with such good chemistry from the hosts that you can’t help but enjoy and learn! It does touch on very complicated things but it does make it easy for the lay person to understand (2 listens helps) that is a positive as the second time around you learn more! If you are slightly interested give it a try!
