I am Jordanian 2710 ,

Great

I’ve struggled to find a quality science podcast where the host isn’t up their own butt about how smart they are. This show has a great balance of information and fun. Keep it up!

Douche beard ,

Solid show with smart people who seem nice

Bobby Franks has quickly become one of my favorite regular contributors to the morning stream podcast - now I’m listening to his show and enjoying it greatly!

BAMFinater ,

Great show

I’m loving this science show. They delve in deep enough and explain enough to be satisfying without going over your head.
