Great podcast!

I really love the Free Radicals episode, even though it strained my 55 year old brain to remember middle school/high school biology. You two crazy guys explain complex information so just about anyone can understand & someone super smart will not be bored, along with fun banter. Thank you & keep going strong! Stay safe 💞
