Hosts John and Hank Green (authors and YouTubers) offer both humorous and heartfelt advice about life’s big and small questions. They bring their personal passions to each episode by sharing the week’s news from Mars (the planet) and AFC Wimbledon (the third-tier English football club).
288: I Thought I'd Come Up With A Joke
What did we do before glasses? What do I do about freeloading roommates? Where are all the Irish setters?
287: The AFC Wimbledon & Mars Spectacular
What happened on Mars this week? What's AFC Wimbledon up to?
286: A Number Likely to Go Up
When should I get a vase? What happens when a cemetery goes bankrupt? Why aren't there spicy animals?
285: A Pill Meant for Horses
Is it okay to ask people for their discarded tree branches? How long should the vaccine need to be in my system before a whale can eat my arm? How do they get all that medicine in such a small pill?
284: Brain Secretions Worthy of Consumption (w/ Charlie Jane Anders!)
How do we know if our ideas are original? Are there any serious efforts to colonize asteroids? What unnecessary things do you do to make life more enjoyable?
283: Nightmare Antz (w/ Ashley C. Ford!)
How do I tell my mom her breath is bad? Was it okay to email my doctor? Can a fetus yawn?
A lot of how I think and view the world has been informed by these two and I’ll never be able to thank them enough so here’s a five star review guys. Love the pod.
Silly discussions are a good break from the stress
In the turbulent and upsetting days of the last year, I have enjoyed this podcast and John’s podcast, the Anthropocene Reviewed. I have appreciated their silly and unimportant discussions as a healthy break from the doom scrolling and political podcasts. The occasional discussion of mental health helps to normalize the mental health needs of everyone and encourage seeking help. Thank you both.
For the Anthropocene Reviewed, John rates many things that I would never think to rate. He explains things from strange viewpoints that are delightful and thought provoking.
Thank you, John. I’m looking forward to the book available May 18, 2021.
P.S. Hank, I miss PodCon. I went to both. Please do it again when we can.
Not a Nerdfighter but still a DH&J fan
I’ve never heard of nor researched most of the Green brothers’ works, but this podcast is still super fun! Even if you aren’t a Nerdfighter or anything it’s still worth a listen!
Hank and John are very entertaining and kind.
Oh and, send them Peeps. Hank and John LOVE Peeps.
