5 stars!

I don’t know how I enjoy an hour deep dive into the most random topics but the witty and funny hosting is definitely half the reason! Perfect balance of informative and entertaining, and always so interesting. Thanks for making me that person at a party that talks people’s ears off about any weird subject. More power xx

PS. My grandparents and then my mom both loved and subscribed to Reader’s Digest; I told them your podcast is the millennial version of that and they are hooked, too!
