The most calming and nerd-affirming podcast out there

Found this podcast after the Magic the Gathering episode cross played on 99% Invisible. I quickly binged the back catalog and now I’m mostly annoyed that I’ve already run out of episodes to listen to.

The host is curious, often naive and just a joy to listen to. There are so many parts of geekdom covered, it makes me feel like I’m discovering things along with him.

Fantastic podcast but terrible for new listeners on....

Apple podcasts.

So, first of all, this podcast is amazing! Every episode is great, even when I’ve never heard of the topic, author etc, I’m hooked.
One of my favourite shows to listen to at work.

HOWEVER....

Any episode older than 6 months is only available if you pay for it which means new listeners are missing out on years worth of quality podcasting. Hopefully this changes in the future but a lot of people I’ve recommended this to are disappointed they can’t start from the beginning like I did.

Excellent

I came across this thanks to an interview Eric did on 'Geeks Guide To The Galaxy' (one of my other favourite podcasts) and have fallen in love with the show, and am now in fact working back through the whole run. Not a bad one in here, superbly done and so well narrated and edited. Love it - well done, Mr Molinsky, please don't stop!!
