Perfect

I’m very picky about my podcasts. I wanted to find a podcast where I could learn something, contained humor, and was engaging. This podcast is perfect! Sooo engaging and something for everyone. Thank goodness for all those corners; it’s like having a bunch of informational themed podcasts in one! I have learned so much. I started with the oldest episode a couple months ago, and am now caught up; which makes me so sad because I want more! No pressure, but also pressure.
I tend to share facts with my husband and really, anyone who will listen. I am an elementary teacher, and I always share my new knowledge of why things are pronounced/spelled certain ways, because my students get so angry while learning to read. I also laugh out loud and verbally respond while listening. If there was an “After the Fact” podcast, I would follow that too, no question. So 5 stars, need more, thank you!

A Quality Podcast

You know when you try a new podcast and it feels like a some strangers just barged into your house? Well this one hit different for me. I started with Episode 1 and almost immediately said, “Yeah, these are my guys.”
Long story short, I’m on Episode 5 and don’t think I’ll stop. Thanks!

Fun fact, this show is awesome.

Fun fact: This is the only podcast I have listened to every episode of.

It’s that good.
