Nathan and Sarah have such a lovely back and forth, it makes for great listening. I don’t listen to podcasts that often but I am beyond pleased to add this one to my collection. It’s a nice blend of comedy and more serious issues, also 10/10 on the episode titles, artwork and theme song. Looking forward to the next episodes already.
The time flew...
Now that Serial has finished, I needed a new podcast to while away my tedious daily commute through the Birmingham suburbs.
I'm sticking with this. Sarah and Nathan are a fantastic pairing as they have overlapping interests but distinct areas of expertise, which they discuss with passion and verve. Being the old married couple that they are, there's some gentle sparring but no irritating interruptions (I have concluded that they must be a *happily* married couple) as they know when to give the other airtime and cede the controls. It's light, funny but actually deceptively informative and I finished my first episode feeling entertained but also stimulated. What more do you need? Will stay tuned.
Varied and interesting.
Every week there's at least one part I can relate to and the personal anecdotes interspersed with the pop culture is sweet and engaging.
