Very interesting.....

Who knew?? I found these podcasts to be very interesting and informative. It's refreshing to know that there are people out there who care enough to inform us of interesting facts that fuel our brains rather than the typical trash that floods us daily. Does anybody really care which celebrity went into rehab this week? This makes for much more interesting conversation around the "water cooler". Not to mention that it makes you sound smart :) Keep up the good work!

Used to Love

I used to love listening to this podcast.

Over the past few years, the team, primarily Chuck, have inserted more and more political opinions into the show. They've also began crafting shows specifically to accompany current political messaging.

I want to be clear, I listen to Stuff You Should Know for the obscure and interesteting subject matter that was covered.

I don't care about the host's political opinions.... that isn't entertaining and if I wanted to listen to another political show, I'd tune in elsewhere.

I presume the hosts will say something like, "this is my show and if you don't like it, listen to something else". That's what I've been doing.

Josh & Chuck provided countless hours of entertainment up and until a few years ago. I am grateful for their work. It is important for the team to know when & why they lose listeners.
