Long time listener
Wow, I just rediscovered this podcast. I used to listen a long time ago. And it’s nice to hear that it’s basically the same. Good show. But could be better. My advice, 20% less Justin (volume and speaking) 10% more Blair, and 10% more objectivity. IMHO. Then this would be a great show. No offense Justin, love you, sure we’d get along, but thinking about the over all quality of the show
Greenhouse Gases in the sky
Justin-you nailed it. Thanks for the cautionary song. “Ghost Riders in the Sky” is my favorite song of all time. I ain’t even mad. You done good.
La and the Gang
This podcast has been a refreshing mix of interesting content and playful non-toxic silliness for decades. I love it!
It is obvious that the three hosts have a genuine enthusiasm for the fascinating science stories they are reporting and also have an underlying fondness and respect for each other.
That said, this week’s episode 887 isn’t working on iTunes, I had to enjoy it elsewhere.
