Very interesting.....

Who knew?? I found these podcasts to be very interesting and informative. It's refreshing to know that there are people out there who care enough to inform us of interesting facts that fuel our brains rather than the typical trash that floods us daily. Does anybody really care which celebrity went into rehab this week? This makes for much more interesting conversation around the "water cooler". Not to mention that it makes you sound smart :) Keep up the good work!

Ignore all the idiots

Any body you give them one star for “using wiki pages” or that something like that stupid stuff. Great job on the show and who cares about those nay saying idiots.

Too many tangents, not well researched

Too many unrelated tangents and not enough focus on the episode's topics. I've listened to a few episodes now and they don't seem well-researched either. Great concept if done well...
