Hilarious takes from serious experts. Each week I'm joined by a new stand up comedian and a new expert to discuss their field of expertise. We're talking the big topics, the brain, space, climate science, psychedelics and all the areas you're most likely to end up when you're drunk, at the end of a party, just trying to figure it all out. . It's a light, funny and easily accessible way to hear the latest from some seriously mind blowing experts.

Funny and Educational!

Absolutely love this concept! You get to learn and laugh all at the same time. Every episode is about a different topic, and there are two guests: An expert in that topic, and a comedian. It's a super fun romp every time, and it genuinely will teach you something in an engaging and hilarious way.
