Facts make me happy :-)

I learn so many things from this show that I can’t wait to share with other people! I’ve turned on some friends to it and when we get together, right away we’re like “do you hear the new one yet? Ok we need to discuss.” Thank you for creating such a fascinating and fun show that I look forward to so much. I go through withdrawal when you take breaks. Come back soon!! I need to learn more super weird things!

My new favorite podcast

92% of my conversations start with “Did you know...” thanks to these wonderfully funny and informative scientists/journalists. The world is a better place because of this show (but I’ve also discovered some terrifying things about the world)
