Genuinely Fun Learning Experience

I don’t think I’ve ever heard a podcast that covers such fun pop culture topics and yet still earns the educational tag. The fact that this one does so without losing any of the fun involved with the topics is a mini-miracle! Keep up the good work!

In a Word: Clever

I love this, I am actually surprised no one has really tackled the idea of science in movies like this! They don’t ask the trivial question of what is the literary whatever behind movies. They tell me why Indiana Jones don’t make sense from an engineering perspective! If you like science and the unexpected, then I can’t recommend this show enough!
