Awesome, seriously

Such a great podcast. I can't stop listening. Searched for it after I finished all of 'theory of everything'

Love this show

I listened to every episode of Theory of Everything but needed more. This show is smart and funny. Walker is brilliant. TMI's special correspondent Chris is my favorite.

Come back soon

You are missed.
