Hooked!

Came across it from listening to and interview with Katie Mack on Ologies. Such a vibrant, brilliant and engaging show!

Sounds like high schoolers

When I think back to cosmic vertigo I have a great fondness for learning. Now I feel like I’m listening to gossiping high schooler who only know tiktok. Like omg.
I couldn’t make it through the first full podcast without having to stop and listen to something else. Maybe I’ll try again in another 3 years…

So good!

This show is so goo! It's definitley mind-blowing boiling down a lot of the technical language so that people can understand. I really enjoy their metaphors.
