Stop interrupting!

I like jokes as well as anyone but not when they’re blurted into the middle of an expert guest’s important point. Bill does that so often it’s becoming quite distracting. Stop it, Bill! We’re here for the science, not the jokes.

Science Rules!

Digestible content for regular people! I love that each episode teaches me something new without being pretentious. My favorite science podcast, plus who doesn’t love Bill Nye ❤️
