:) super interesting and helpful podcast

I was impressed with the hosts talent and really enjoyed this latest episode that was very helpful in breaking down the election mathematics!

Great content...less mansplaining please.

It took over 12 minutes of speaking with the WA state pest pathologist before you asked her about how she got involved and what her role was with the current murder hornet containment program. In general, the content was great and you did eventually let her explain things more. Next time, when you introduce a guest, maybe start with highlighting their expertise and knowledge.
