An entertaining and informative listen. Good banter between the host.
Edit: Thanks for mentioning my review on the podcast. After listening to multiple episodes, I'm bumping you up to five. Can't wait for season two.

Spectacular in every possible way

Very rarely does one come across a podcast that honestly and truly blows one's mind. Don't Be An Idiom is, hands down, a mind blowingly fun podcast! Since listening to it - I catch myself constantly thinking about the words that I use to communicate to others. The hosts have opened up my eyes to the fact that all the idioms we use in our day to day, they actually came from somewhere! Do you know what "mumbo jumbo" means? What about "paint the town red?" No? Well, listen to this podcast and you will! Don't Be An Idiom is laugh out loud funny AND surprisingly educational. I highly recommend this podcast!

I'm not going to beat around the bush, these guys hit the nail on the head. This podcast is like a VW Beetle, in that: it's funny, a great conversation piece, and I'm pretty sure it runs without a water pump... If these guys charged for a subscription, I'm sure it would sell like hotcakes, but it's free, so give it a listen!
