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!

Growing in you!!

I love to listen to you guys. But I can’t stand mice or rats. I skipped past that. Thought you’d get a kick out of my story. When I was in 7th grade I inhaled watermelon due to a cough while I was eating. A couple weeks went by and I got sick. I missed several days of school. I went to the Dr. I was admitted to the hospital. I was suffering from pneumonia. I was discharged after 5days. I was on the couch at home and I began coughing so bad and I couldn’t stop!!! I had coughed up watermelon seeds that had begun to grow. The seeds had feelers and her feeding on the infection in my lungs. The only thing I couldn’t give them was light. This is the St. Luke’s medical history.

Learning, but without the stress

We have podcasts running 24/7 around here (since we work from home) and every pod we subscribe to teaches us something. But sometimes, world news gets too intense and we need a break.. but celebrity-centered fluff is too boring.
Enter “Stuff to Blow Your Mind” to save the day!
It’s engaging, stays interesting, and usually broadens our horizons about topics we haven’t thought of before. And each episode goes a bit deeper into the research too, so even if we’re familiar with the topic, we still usually learn something.

Plus Rob and Joe have great radio voices too!
I could listen to them read a washing machine manual! Thankfully, they post a Listener Mail episode every week, so there’s no need for that ^^;

The pod posts regularly, the topics doesn’t go stale, it sounds fantastic (no fuzzy mics here!), and they don’t have volume spikes/dips either (like so many others do).
On top of that, they still post a Vault/Classic episode when the guys take a break. (Life saver!!)

For all these reasons and more, we thank you “Stuff to Blow Your Mind”. Been listening for years and we won’t be unsubscribing any time soon <3

P.S. We also can’t sleep without something playing, but I can’t handle repetitive sounds or political stress at night before bed. So I load up a bunch of old “Stuff” podcasts to play through the night (like I am right now lol). But we totally still listen while we’re awake too!
It’s meant as a complement bc it’s super helpful to know that I can trust there won’t be any loud noises, jarring transitions, blaring intro music, or people yelling during the night. So shout out to the Production Team! Y’all are awesome <3
