funny food for thought

You know it’s like, gives you things to think about which you can relate to without being really dry or a hard listen. The humor is good. The hosts are very likable. I like it because it is the right balance between light casual listening and some kind of topic to stimulate your mind, for someone like me who usually doesn’t want to think to hard while listening but still wants to feel like I’m listening to something with some sort of point or value.

What a fun, nerdy, funny show!

**Edit: It’s three years after my initial review, and I’m still listening to and loving this show.**

I really enjoy their banter. It's like I'm in the room with them, listening in on their silly work conversations.
