Love the show! Amazing science facts, monsters and myths, and weird movies

I love the science episodes and have listened for years!

Weird house cinema are my go to episodes to listen to over and over in the car!

Great hosts that dive deep into topics and I love how they bring together the history, science, mythology and the speculative into a fascinating journey of discovery!

What’s up with the white noise?!

Why did you add that to your “break” aka commercials. It was alarming. I like to listen to you at bedtime where I can ponder. That was jarring!

Great show with something for everyone

I’m a huge fan of weird house cinema, it has introduced me to whole host of movies that I may never had heard of much less watched.
The show has given me a great appreciation for mid 20th century cinema, the cheesy 80s, and even foreign films most notably out of Czech!

My other favorite segments are the inventions episodes. I find taking ordinary every day items and tracing their origins as far back as possible.

I’ve also really enjoyed being introduced to different myths, such as Irish and Chinese folk stories.

Great show, please continue providing me with one of my favorite podcast that I listen to every day. You both are wonderful hosts, narrators, story tellers, teachers and personalities. We are very fortunate and grateful to have you!
