Great podcast

This show is amazing. I love the amount of work that you guys put into all the material you speak on. The friendly banter between American English and British English is entertaining as well (especially for a person who moved to the US after using the metric system!) I love to listen to this podcast either when I mow or drive. It makes the time go by fast.

Hilariously Unpredictable and Entertaining

The brainfood show is a top quality podcast. It’s the type of podcast you could randomly click play on any episode and it would be thoroughly entertaining. Both gentlemens’ voices are pleasant to listen to, and their witty banter and hilarious asides keep their shows unpredictable. The cherry on top is the fact that you actually learn a lot about interesting topics from the episodes. Great show gentlemen, keep up the phenomenal work.
