10/10 Would Recommend

I started binging this at work one day and I couldn’t stop! It’s clear the hosts are having so much fun doing this show and their love for the show and weird facts is so infectious!

Great premise...lousy execution

I love the premise of the show.

Unfortunately, the girls that host the show sound like 15 year-olds that have never found their way out of the big city. I might have remained a listener had they managed to leave out the elitist/liberal/feminist commentary, and/or eventually found their adult radio voices. Sadly, no, they never have.

After finding this podcast, I listened to 21 episodes thinking they’d eventually find their talent. Sadly, the ASMR-like voices and immature attitudes just tittered on.

If these girls are in fact editors of PopSci, I need to rethink my opinion of the publication(s).

The best!

I am seriously addicted to this podcast. Mostly because Rachel and Clare- I kinda like want to hangout with you guys. Even if you’re up speaking twinkies 🙄😂 It’s the best combo of information and comedy. If you guys could maybe come to Asheville NC for a live show- that would definitely make my year! Love, Maggie formerly from Long Island now living in NC 😆
