Learn something and laugh
Learn something and laugh is a great way to describe their podcast. Nathan and Craig do a good job of researching their topics, despite what an angry chess fanatic may think. Not that there is anything wrong with liking chess, but I would definitely say that that reviewer took one episode a little too seriously. I enjoy listening to their discussions, some of which are on topics I never thought would have interested me. Nathan has a very interesting world view and overall the show is an enjoyment. While they may not be as regular as I think they would to be with episodes, they do put a lot of effort into making each episode that does make it out worth it. Keep up the good work guys.

Craig and Nathan always pick interesting topics, ranging from television shows we've all grown up with to supernatural creatures. Never a dull episode!
