LordPuruser ,

A good mix of formal presentation and humor.

A well researched podcast, providing a substantial amount of info on the subject while not making it mundane. Very concise and to the point, leaving you wanting a little more. Definitely recommend.

Longer Podcasts

I like this podcast it’s interesting, I just wish the episodes were longer. It’s just very interesting and I want them to take up more time while I’m at work 😂

Kawiiwolfiepup ,

(:

Hasn’t talked about how hot Mothman is yet which is pretty weird, but overall it’s pretty good
