Good start on a subject with unlimited possibilities.
I can do without the overlaid sound effects. A distraction.
You don’t need it.
Smarter every episode!
An excellent podcast for the science uninitiated! Had a friend recommend it and it became a quick fave.
Too much silly blather.
Guests are intelligent and interesting bur the hosts “cute”and inane blather make it far too difficult to focus on the science. I had to stop listening. The hosts undermine the entire enterprise.
