Entertaining and informative

This podcast has such a broad variety of topics. Several episodes discuss topics I didn’t even know were “a thing,” let alone researched. I have learned from each episode. Each type of research is discussed in such a fun relatable way. I see ordinary day to day things differently after listening to Wyatt’s conversations with these researchers.
