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!

Best podcast!

I love this podcast so much, I could listen to them talk about anything all day. Light hearted and sweet. Their voices are calming and make me happy.

How to waste time

How to waste your time. Go to google or Wikipedia, this is American guys drinking beer and talking. I don’t know why America men have to sound dumb to be cool.
