Jalachan ,

Fun & Interesting Show!

All of the hosts are fabulously funny and the combination of backgrounds, personalities and energies makes for great listening whether you're familiar with the topic of the week or not. Solid recommend.

Always a pleasure to listen to!

Been a long time listener now, and I always have a great time with this. The main hosts are passionate, and the rotating guests do a great job of providing insight. Covers a broad range of topics too, including some interesting obscure stuff I would never have found on my own. A real pleasure!

Fun hosts, great analysis

Dave, Leonard and Cameron are super smart guys and they have a great rapport. This show is always fun to listen to, especially if you’re into the creatures they’re discussing in a given week. The show is always informative as the hosts really do their research. I really enjoy this podcast!
