Please listen to it

Extremely easy to digest. Their tone and inflections are great for audio listening. I enjoy that they don’t interject their politics into the facts of the subjects they cover. As long as it stays/seems like this opinion I will continue to listen to.

Fun podcast

The normal podcast is great! Very fun to listen to and the information is quite accurate.

The coronavirus episodes were great but now they’re just bad. We get new info which I really like, but she has to explain everything in such dumbed down terms. Then we get to the questions part of the podcast and she takes the dumbest questions that were already answered months ago. I swear the people that submit questions have never read an article in their life and this is the lazy way to get their questions answered. READ A FREAKING ARTICLE PEOPLE! I really wish she could explain the topic in an adult manner and act like people have at least learned enough to have an intelligent conversation.

Great Show!

A wonderful show! A great intellectual oasis in the podcast desert of pseudoscience, junk science, and conspiracy nonsense so prevalent today. Please keep up the great work!
