Stuff You Should Know About Stuff You Should Know

Josh and Chuck are really likable guys.
They talk about interesting subjects.
The shows are informative but not preachy.
The atmosphere is always lighthearted.
There’s no swearing so anyone can listen.
Jeri is really loud.
The episode on The Sun is not their finest work.

Captivating.

I have listened to so many podcasts and no matter what podcast is the flavour of the month, I always looks forward to my twice weekly dose of SYSK.

I have listen to all the episodes and Josh and Chuck have made every topic interesting. I find myself zoning out with other podcasts, but never with SYSK. The guys always seem to keep things lighthearted and entertaining, even when dealing with tough topics.

Also their live show in Dublin was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen!
