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!

Great show

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