Follow her search as she looks to scientists, researchers, and experts for evidence about everything from what music cats like to the fluid dynamics of spilling coffee.

Real life solutions to made up problems!

And yet, I no longer keep a sponge in my kitchen….
This is on my list of daily listening. Paula and Adam bring SO much joy to my day. It’s nice to have something to listen to that’s not all politics all the time. What I learn from this podcast has increased my ability to start fun conversations with strangers on the bus. Suddenly, I find myself sitting alone. And I don’t know why!
