listen to it everyday
still listening to older shows to catch up. its my go-to podcast while walking the dog. I learn some really awesome things about every science imaginable even though I am no spring chicken. Love, love, love it. The corny jokes have grown on me and I no longer groan (see what I did there....)
It’s not the same anymore!
I am sorry but since Curiosity Daily has changed their team it is just not the same anymore. The new hosts are trying so hard to copy Cody and Ashley but you just don’t get it right. You’re not funny, the way you guys present is super dry and it’s very hard to listen to you without spacing out. I miss the last team because it was so easy and refreshing to listen to them. It was fun to learn something but unfortunately not anymore.
Bite sized doses of interesting info
Had to knock a star because of the obviously scripted, robotic, “conversations” I’m hearing. Are these new hosts (and/or format) permanent?
