Came for the science, stayed for the comedy

This is a science comedy podcast that sometimes also chats about paranormal and other odd goings on. I think the biggest selling point for me on this pod (aside from great production value and research) is the humor! This one really gels with me, it feels like I’m just laughing along with my friends!

Excellent!

I just discovered this and it’s super enjoyable. I really like the way it promotes open minded ness which is one of my missions :) The host’s style is excellent and engaging and the topics often fascinating!
