Terrific Pod

Inventive, informative and greatly entertaining. Such a neat idea and terrifically executed. Can’t wait for the next season. 👍🏻

Well thought out and interesting!

These guys put a lot of work into the presentation and research of the topics that they cover, and they never seem to miss. You will learn a lot about things you never knew existed, or that you were even interested in. One of the top podcasts out here!

The joy is in the journey

This podcast is not only a thoroughly enjoyable celebration of knowledge, but also a celebration of the journey to obtain it. The topics chosen at the beginning lead to unexpectedly delightful places, but never to an end point. Instead, we are left with the possibility of another journey and an implied invitation to chart our own course in the pursuit of wonder. Well done, lads.
