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!

Unique

This podcast is really hooking- it grabs diverse or unique topics to talk about and makes the show really interesting. Unlike other shows, it doesn’t have that feeling of boredom while the host(s) talk about something. Amazing podcast, 5/5!!
