Fun Fact Review

I listen to this podcast every night before bed and in my free-time. This podcast is just so interesting and funny. I hope they continue well into the future. Thank You! for your amazing awesome podcast.

Fun and facts 😂

Interesting with great hosts

Excellent and engaging

There’s something about the rapport these two have that makes the show even more engaging than its subject matter. Add to that the propensity to delve into the history of the words involved in the fact, and you get by far the best “fun facts” show I have ever watched or listened to. I have stopped listening to many podcasts; this one has stayed.
