BINGE THIS!

I’ve been binge listening this podcast while at work for the last couple of weeks (I’ve almost run out of episodes and I think I might cry) and I love it! I’ve told everyone I know about it, and annoyed many friends by going on about how much I love it, and telling them all my little tidbits of new information that I’ve found interesting. Alie, you’ve inspired me and I now spend all my time looking for more information on everything!!!! I can’t stop asking questions!!!

My life is so much better now...

I've not listened to a Podcast where I've laughed and learned in equal measure more than I have with Ologies. Alie is a delight and I would totes let her stay at my house if she ever needed a place to crash while on holiday in New Zealand...

Love this!

This is one of my favourite podcasts! I never thought I could listen to an hour long episode about such inane things as bees, coral, scorpions or hagfish but somehow Alie Ward makes anything fascinating! Awesome interviewer with awesome guests! Love love love this!!
