Entersplaing

When KP Hickerson isn't "mansplaning" (or he's an effing physicist speaking to comedians, or laypeople, condescendingly) and when Griff Pippen is there to "bro" it down for everyone. This is the smartest, dumb/ funniest podcast on the planet. If you want to science but you can't think real good... this podcast will make you the smartest of your dumb friends. If you're actually a scientist and want to keep up on pop-sci (like pop culture only smarter) and like to laugh; this podcast is for both and everyone in between... Honestly why are you reading this? Do you not have a life? Just listen!!! You'll laugh and learn something.

Please let the guests talk

I’m writing this review because I really hope that the host can read this: the topics and contents are awesome, the scientist guests are impressive and the comedian guests are funny. However, I full-heartedly agree with the top review that KP Hickersen needs to “mansplain” less — or simply pay attention and stop interrupting the other scientist guests. This is not only missing the point of interviewing (and make me so sad when those respectable elder scientists struggled to catch up in talking), but also just blatantly rude no matter which context you are in. It’s been 2 years since the review and nothing seems having changed. I can see how this is a common problem among really smart people and get unnoticed, but please be a better person and we need you to keep making these contents.
