Ever tried to make love while your partner told knock knock jokes? It's aggravating and distracting. Just like listening to Chuck and Neil belly-hoot and guffaw while we are here trying to get our minds blown on science. I love this show wich is why I want to be blunt. Your knowledge of science is far more entertaining than your comedic ability.
Informative and funny! My new favorite podcast!!
