Love it!

Thank you so much for this podcast, you two! Not only do I gain a daily nugget of knowledge, but you never fail to bring me a smile, or even, everyone's in a while, a chuckle, or out right laugh! Keep up the good work!

Questions great, podcast a little cringey at times

Love the questions.

The discussion part with Murray & Tamika, while generally great, can really be cringey to me sometimes in one particular aspect, in that they take on these roles of "old white guy who knows about everything before 1980" and "young black woman who knows about contemporary pop culture." I find this tiresome. They both have the information. Why rehearse this eye-rolling dynamic when they could both be Alex Trebek, or take turns without reference to their actual age? It feels patronizing to me, as if someone named Tamika couldn't possibly be expected to have knowledge of Russian history, whereas Murray "naturally" does. Ugh.

OMG?! So awesome!!!

Ok, so even though I’m a kid I still really love this podcast, it’s super educational and funny, and it’s overall just amazing! Also, Murray and Tamika are so kind sounding, and I recommend this to everybody!
