A nice mess ,

Fun, informative, and Gef the Mongoose? Sign me up.

I adore this podcast. I’ve listened to RJ and Rachel since the very beginning, and I look forward to it every week. If you dropped this podcast during their hiatus, absolutely pick it back up again. They’re really hitting their stride. Their judgements are reasonable, they cover the information well, and they don’t shy away from the weird.
And as a ferret owner and big Gef fan, I was pretty excited that they told his ridiculous tale.
Five stars, two thumbs, all nine yards - this podcast is excellent.

Great fun listen for open minded skeptics

Fun for people who know enough to go with the most reasonable explanation of things, but also hope to find the real story is more exciting. A cozy and easy listening.

Have you guys ever heard of the story from the 1930s of Gef the talking mongoose?
