Yes. This. Thank you.

I first listened to etymology because I am a huge book nerd. Couldn’t stop there and it turns out I’m an everything nerd and I am learning so much on my road trips thanks to Ologies.
I was wondering if you have heard of Hunger for Words? Speech pathologist Christina Hunger has trained her dog Stella to talk and together they are making breakthroughs in what the world knows about how animals communicate! Check her out I hope to hear about it soon on ologies 💛

Best Science podcast ever!

Thanks for all your awesome hard work and the way you unpack and ask the right questions on the subjects is igniting so many young and old minds. I think one day our future will be saved by a kid who listened to your podcasts and realized the value of their intellect because you jammed it with so many facts... please keep finding these people and making me dance when I hear the beat drop on your theme music cause I know I’m about to learn something.

The best science podcast

Ali is a wonderful podcast host. She knows how to make her guest comfortable. The podcast is so informative. If you like science or kind of like science this podcast is for you. Her attitude puts me in a good mood every time. Sometimes I laugh too hard. I have listened to a lot of podcast, sometimes 8 hrs a day (I deliver mail) and this by far is my favorite.
