My new favorite podcast

I caught Andrew on the Skeptic podcast with Michael Shermer and was spellbound! bought his books, then followed him down the rabbit hole to this! I am a lay person and a science buff for years. I listen to and watch everything science. A lot of the scientists on the other shows suffer from is the ‘curse of knowledge’ and speak with a lot of jargon, assuming you have a science background. What happens on this show is that Julian asks the lay person questions, that makes Andrew break it down. My brain is going hallelujah! Love the show guys. Keep it coming.

Great podcast

Fun fact: Listen to this on 1/2 speed if you wanna hear what Andrew sounds like drunk.
