Best Daily Science Podcast

If you are looking for a quick daily science podcast on your Amazon Alexa Daily Brief or for your commute to work or school this is it. Cody and Ashley make an amazing relatable team that delve into peered review science and established experts this is your jam. Never mind that Cody's hair defies logic or Ashley's marathon capable running knees never give out - these two are real and hardly a day goes by that I don't either learn something new or I'm able to source a fact better. My hat is off to this team and I dip my broadcast microphone to them.
