Superb

Exceptional podcast. The politics discussions are important and necessary and Cara is great. Ignore the haters. I’ve been listening since the early 2010s and I truly think you are doing a service to humanity, against Sisyphean odds.

Cara rocks

I was shocked by any negative Cara reviews. Cara is brilliant. Naysayers just don’t like smart women. If she were a man no one would complain about her talking a lot, interrupting or her laugh. Come on people. She has educated and insightful remarks.She is excited about information. Double standard for men. Get used to it, men. Podcasts are giving smart, talented women a voice and a platform to be heard. Need more? Talk Nerdy with Cara.

Phenomenal

My most listened to podcast of the last 10 years. Steve is a human encyclopedia, Cara is an intellectual dynamo, Bob is my favorite Uber geek, and Jay and Evan are very insightful as well s as hilarious. I’ve met them at a conference and they are great down to earth people.
