Smart and Fascinating

I love this show because it covers important and interesting topics that no one else is talking about— a lone reed in the pond of podcasts. When you see a topic that you are unfamiliar with, watch out because you will be fascinated with it afterwards.

I’m even ordering the crickets to support the show ;)... and to get my protein.
