Pretty interesting

I like the topics and the short, digestible pod lengths. My only issue is that I don't like the host's reading voice. I wish it wasn't a reading voice.

It's All Gooey and Sticky ,

Good show

It's all right to listen to. Although the repeats are frequent.

Not satisfied viewer ,

Fast pace

I like it but they speak so fast for me to digest the information. Could you please speak a little slower? Thank you
