fun and informative
I don't know much about ocean science so this podcast is a fun way to approach a new subject. The information is scientific and solid but it's not over my head and the episodes are fairly short so it's not overwhelming. I'm definitely learning a lot.
Informative & Fun!
I'll admit that while I consider myself an environmental activist, I don't actually know too much about ocean science - this has been a great resource for me!
Science, but fun!
The hosts really make the content relatable and easy to understand, and they do it in such an adorable way. It’s definitely one of my favorite science podcasts!
