Seemingly Obviously Different People with Stimulating Conversation

I listen to this podcast in all of my spare time, during chores, downtime, driving etc. I learn new things and enjoy just hearing thought provoking subjects in every since episode. I am not remotely religious but I super enjoy learning more about it. So many fun topics and genres all wrapped up in one podcast. Thank you Matt and Destin for the continued fun learning experience.

This podcast is so much fun to listen to

History, Science, Literature, Culture, and lots of laughs. This is my kind of production.

They have my sword!

My younger brother recommended this podcast to me about a year ago, and though it sounded like something I would have loved, I didn’t get around to actually listening to it until a few months ago. My biggest regret is that I did not listen to it sooner! This is the greatest podcast my little ears have ever come across!
Destin and Matt both are such brilliant people, and their senses of humor leave my ribs aching and me crying from laughing so hard. I’ve been recommending this podcast to literally everyone, and they all love it too! For me, personally, I love hearing both perspectives on topics—Destin’s logical and engineering brain, and Matt’s historical and humanities points of view. I leave listening to an episode feeling inspired and excited to pursue my dream of becoming a Geologist. I love the deep and meaningful conversations, and then all the jokes in between. I love being part of the third chair, and I feel like I’ve found a community I belong to. Destin and Matt, you have my sword [and my bow, and my ax]. Thank you for creating this platform! I have found a second home.
