Review: The Anthropocene Reviewed

This podcast always makes me feel less alone.

5 stars!

Ironically leaving a 5 star review on a podcast which makes fun of 5 star reviews. This podcast is poetry. Thanks John!

My favourite podcast

This podcast makes me laugh, cry, and see things in a new way. It’s the only podcast I frequently come back and re-listen to. Glad you’re back to 5 star reviews, John!
