Great Topics, Host Can Be A Bit Tiring

This show always covers interesting topics and consults a number of scientific sources. The host is an aquired taste. It's clear that she considers comedy a part of her brand, yet it seems that she's never rejected a single joke that she's written. Nothing wrong with a few corny groaners, but any professional comedian will tell you that the mark of a good set is not using every single joke you came up with. But I keep the show in my feed because it's a good pop-sci overview of a lot of fascinating topics. (I will also add that while I share the host's political views, there's no denying she puts her thumb on the scale, and that's not consistent with good science.)

Your shark song is a creative masterpiece. Best thing I’ve heard since the Portal end credits. Bravo!
