Love this show

I’m fairly new to the show so still catching up, but I love hearing about the various guests lives and weirdnesses based on life experiences. So fascinating, the perfect show to keep you open minded

Awesome Show

Being in Club Fish, I had to give this a try! I listened to the audiobook of The Theory of Everything Else and knew that if this podcast was going to go into the kind of things that were in the book then it was going to be great!

It did not disappoint! This dives right into the deep end of weird and I am all for it! It’s amazing how many interesting people there are on the show and Dan and Spooky Al are hilarious in their Rough Corner shows. There is a real sense of no judgment and people just being themselves. It’s genuine and refreshing to listen to. I think this was the reason I fell in love with ‘No Such Thing As A Fish’ was because they are all so genuine and hilarious and listening to the show, you feel like you’re just part of the group.

Thanks for a great listen!

Mind blowing and funny

A mind blowing and intelligent delve into the weird. It has healthy levels of scepticism and open mindedness, and is always sensitive to people’s beliefs. And it’s funny !
