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.

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!
