Did you study hard in science class? Neither did comics Aric and Levi. Regret Labs is their attempt to make up for lost time. In each episode they attempt to explain a scientific concept and then invite a guest expert to join them and tell them how very wrong they are. There’s learning, laughing, science, and redemption. You may get a better understanding of the world or you may just get entertained. But you wont regret listening.

Cool podcast with neat concept!
I stumbled across this podcast when I was looking for something new to listen to on my new iPod. So far I like it a lot! It has a really cool concept behind it, and I really like the two hosts and their friendly and silly dynamic with one another. My only critique is that I feel like there are large gaps of time before anything happens, I guess I could call it “dead time”. A lot of it is just the two hosts joking with one another, which I like, but it sometimes creates noticeable gaps of time before anything new or interesting happens. This isn’t to say I don’t like the goofy dynamic between the two hosts, I just think the show could benefit with a little more focus at times.
Can’t wait for me
Love this premise, and these are exactly the right guys for the job. Funny, earnest, self-depreciating, and smart enough to recognize their own ignorance.
Your Dad's Dad
This is a podcast I enjoy listening to (trying to sound a scientifically straightforward as possible so I fit in. Sweet Lord I hope it worked)!
