Where both science and mystery are welcome

I heard Mike on Pete Holmes podcast. I immediately ordered his book, which I’ve now finished and love. This podcast gives me a sense of belonging. I’m an atheist leaning agnostic and also a natural mystic. That certainly has made it extremely difficult to fit in. Mike, like me, loves the wonders of science and also pays attention to emotions, feelings, and our personal idea of spirituality.

The Short Version

I was introduced to Mike on GMM, and my life is now better with this podcast (and now You’re a Miracle...) in it. It’s honestly what I needed more of (Hank and John Green provide a similar comfort), and I wish I had found you earlier.

Thank you for giving me a safe place to cry and be in awe of humanity and human ingenuity with you.

GMM introduced me to Science Mike

The episode you were on was absolutely fantastic! I love that you are actual friends with Rhett and Link. You need to be on the show more! Also I just got both your books! Just started reading Finding God in the Waves and so far it’s so relatable and great to read! I look forward to the rest and You’re a Miracle ( and a pain in the a**). I’m so happy to have found you!
