One of my favorites

I love everything that John Green does, from his books to his amazing charity work to his podcasts, and this one is no exception. This podcast is both soothing and informative, and reminds me that close attention can be paid to anything, and that value can be found in unexpected places. I can tell that he puts a lot o work and research into this podcast and it really shows.

Most thoughtful show I’ve heard

The Anthropocene Reviewed always brings the keenest insights and cutting somber tones that are so often needed in my life. I can often only listen to one or two episodes at a time as each one is filled with nostalgia, sweet melancholy, nuance, and a much needed long view of reality. I give The Anthropocene Reviewed, 5 stars.

One of my Favorite Podcasts

This is an amazingly good podcast whose name I cannot remember half the time! John Green’s satisfyingly nerdy comparisons of two unrelated items in each episode fulfills our need to know things and our need to connect in a real and emotional way with our world. Sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, I highly recommend these episodes.
