Rare genuine fun in learning
It’s not always fun to learn something as complex as science, especially the cosmos. But Neil, especially when in tandem with comic co-host Chuck Nice, makes it so damn digestible and exciting. Neil’s laughters are contagious! Sometimes when I’m listening in bed at night and dozing off, his laugh jolts me up lol but I love it. Episodes with Chuck Nice are my fave. Please keep him!
