Great podcast to satisfy the scientist in me.

This podcast is full of interesting science topics that keep the nerdy science chick in me very happy. Love these two hosts. They’re intelligent and down to earth. I became their biggest fan when Chris said all flat earthers were either trolls or had a mental deficiency that made them more susceptible to gullibility. That statement was so spot on!

Smart and Fun!

I’m a science geek at heart, so this show fills that niche for me, but it is so much more than that! Chris’ expertise is far-reaching and so his interviews and discussions are always well-focused, based on logic and research and his guests and co-host are always just as bright and enjoyable. It’s a really special mix of good, hard science, with more popular social take on that, and also, light and approachable enough for even those not previously knowledgeable in the subject. Really glad I found this show!

Love this show!

When a show can be entertaining AND informative, then it’s a winner in my book. Chris gets great guests and I learn something every time
