My favorite podcast!

I love dinosaurs and always wanted to keep informed about dinosaur news, but I don’t come from a science background, so found it really hard to follow papers and sift through all the misinformation. IKD sifts through it all, keeps me incredibly up to date, and through long time listening helps expand my base of knowledge, as they explain not just the current new dinosaur or paper, but the basic information one needs to understand it. Garret and Sabrina also have a really great dynamic, the kind of podcast where you feel you get to know and like them as you listen. And they do a great job of fostering a community outside the podcast.

Well researched and entertaining

Great info.; rigorous but also entertaining. By far the best out there in this genre.

RBaker221 ,

A great show for anyone who like dinosaurs

I look forward each week to a new episode of this show. Garret and Sabrina give great information about dinosaurs that they make accessible to novices and experts alike, and they clearly have fun doing it. Fun to listen to!
