SEC-Fan ,

Absolutely Amazing.

I love SciManDan’s YouTube comment. Safe to say I came from YouTube, but stayed for the outstanding podcast. I love science, and these episodes do a perfect job of showing the amazing scientific ideas and backgrounds of the hosts and guests. However, it’s not a dense academic podcast, so you get the awesome and unique science personalities and information with the perfect amount of joking fun as Dan and Cats incorporate their extensive knowledge of the hilarious anti-science world. I love it.

Great format and really interesting guests

I like how this format is widening the discussion from conspiracy to science, it’s a really nice bridge. All the guests have been very interesting so far too, a nice mix.
