Who doesn’t love weird, random info?

I love this show! If you’re like me and enjoy gathering weird, random, and sometimes useless but cool facts and info, then this show is for you. I also really love that it’s hosted by women who are all really funny and well informed. Thanks for feeding my desire for new, weird stuff to blab about to friends!

Love the podcast, but...

The information in this podcast is wonderfully weird and well researched. This group of women are true intellectuals, but I have a pet peeve I may not be able to get past. There is a grating tendency for “uptalk” - making a declarative statement sound more like a question. Please stop. It undermines the authority you have on the subject matter and causes grown women to sound like hesitant teenagers. You are adults. You are brilliant. And you are doing yourselves a huge disservice by falling into a vocal pattern that diminishes your ability to effectively communicate that.
