Engaging and Enlightening

Absolutely love Smart Drivel. Really interesting topics covered, and Jon and Kurt approach each one with their signature blend of humor and intelligence. Each episode is the perfect length, so you can listen while exercising or running a quick errand. I come out of every episode having laughed a lot but also having learned something new. Definitely give Smart Drivel a listen if you haven’t already, you’ll be glad you did!
