My new binge podcast

Heard you guys on Cult Podcast and followed you here. I’ve been binging for a few days now and I love it. You make me feel weirdly optimistic about the future. And make me snort laugh, so good combo.

Entertaining and informative!!

I’ve been listening to this podcast for years now, and it’s still fresh every time. Having new science articles reviewed weekly and bringing in the occasional current events keeps me coming back, that and the inappropriate jokes of course.
