JLMiraldi ,

I love this podcast!!

Hilarious, great guests, well researched. I like that they start off assuming you don’t know about the topic even if it is fairly well known. Really great show!

nemecjen ,

Thoroughly entertaining and interesting

Shout out to Margo D, from What A Creep, for sending me your way! I love the format, dig the dynamics between the hosts, enjoy the sound editing and look forward to listening to every single episode past and future!

calibella1995 ,

Disasters in a respectful and factual way??? Gimme!!!

I literally tell everyone about this podcast because I am left with so many random facts to share! I’ve been fascinated with disasters forever and as a fellow catastrophizer (shout-out therapy!!) I adore this podcast. It’s almost like it helps me focus all of my anxious energy into the disaster being presented but then I feel better afterwards? And I learned??!!! Amazing. I hope this podcast never ends bc I will be listening to it forever. Would love you to cover the 1985 Nevado del Ruiz explosion in Colombia that killed 20,000 people as my parents are Colombian and talk about it a lot :)

Love y’all!
