Amusing, intellectual and overall exceptional
The intro theme to this show gives you an idea of the tone as well as the concept of this show. That concept is getting intimate with everyday people. Due to the concept, every episode is profoundly varied, intellectual and usually very informative.
The two hosts are infectiously positive and enthusiastic. There is a really good chemistry between them and the guest gets sucked in to this - comfortably chatting away without any hesitance.
They interviewed someone from my first university - I can’t give them anything but 5 stars! 😁 That episode contained one of the most insightful segments on a mental health condition I’ve come across within a podcast. Fine, fine work, truly.
If you’re looking for something different, fun and informative, give this a try. This is genuinely one of the best shows I’ve come across in more than a year. I’m now off to google search ‘male scientist” and ‘female scientist’ to see what comes up.
BBC Sounds, sign these folks up!
I love this podcast, when i need a break from true crime, I love listening to this podcast. the hosts are warm, and natural, demonstrating the great chemistry they have. It is great to highlight the exceptional lives of normal people.
You Just Know!
As soon as I heard these two lovely voices I just knew it wasn't going to be difficult to listen to more shows; somehow they manage to make it feel so comfortable to listen to, the conversation is natural and funny and I found the interviews interesting too. Subscribed... you should too.
