They ask good questions

It sounds like the guests are used to being science experts and getting softballs, but the two hosts ask tough questions and Bill defines each science term as it comes up. It's nice to hear more than one scientists talking. Really elevates the conversation, while at the same time making it approachable for kids - because of the definitions.

Educational for dummies

Love this podcast and how they cover a variety of topics to stay relatable. They also ensure they breakdown scientific terms people may not know. It’s a little cheesy which makes me happy and serious about topics that are not laughing matters. Keep up the good work!

Heavily sponsored and Liberal views

Overall good podcast but LOTS of commercials and too much obvious left wing President bashing for me to rank higher. Stick to factual discussion.
