The Great Stewardess Rebellion

Enjoyed the interview with Nell McShane Wulfhart. Especially, having flown as a Flight Attendant for 40 years… starting with TWA, ending my career with American Airlines. I experienced many of the topics discussed. Still was a great job. Look forward to getting the book. However, a postscript should be added… TWA Flight Attendants went on strike 1986… during Easter… against TWA and the infamous corporate raider , Carl ICAHN. Please, take the time and Google it. We did it.. stuck together. But, in the end … a slow death for TWA. Thank You✌🏼✈️

Consistently Fantastic and Informative

I have been watching Adam since he was on College Humor and have so much respect for him. His curiosity is contagious, and even when the information being conveyed is depressing and alarming at times, the blow is softened by his natural humor. His acknowledgment that he doesn’t know everything and learns from experts in their field is refreshing and makes me feel better that I don’t know everything either. This show gives me the vibes of Getting Curious With Jonathan Van Ness mixed with Adam’s previous show Adam Ruins Everything. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to be more informed about the world we live in.

Miss the show, so grateful for the podcast

I was a huge fan of Adam Ruins Everything and still regularly cycle through the episodes. This podcast is the best thing that has ever happened. So much longer than the show episodes, so I’m depth, amazing guests. Highly recommend.
