Thorough and balanced

As a fellow fish nerd, I especially appreciate Ret’s in-depth reporting on complex topics. The episodes are well-researched and interesting. Even for those people who aren’t as aquatically- minded, this is a great podcast to check out!

Interesting, informative, entertaining

Nice format, fun guests, thought provoking topics. It’s great to see a podcast that uses real data but also outlines the unknowns and potential problems.
Very impressed with the first two episodes, and am looking forward to the future. This podcast has a lot of wonderful potential, and is refreshingly intriguing! Nice work Ret.

Great. Seriously great.

This is right up my alley - really love how hard science intersects with social science in this show.
