For the Artist and Scientist Alike
On episode three and I adore it. I was a little doubtful at first, I must admit. I'm a college student studying biology, but I'm also an artist, and this show appeals to both sides of me. I wanted something that would entertain me while I draw, but that wouldn't leave me feeling braindead afterwards. Informative and funny!
One of the best podcasts out there!
I’m a Registered Nurse, and I’ve tried to find a podcast that’s informative, funny, and interesting at the same time. Not only does this podcast improve my knowledge of medicine, but also increases curiosity about different conditions and how they came into being. I hope you guys never stop, and keep the new podcasts coming!
I love anything to do with medicine and I just love your show. Very informative and hilarious!! Wish you guys would do more episodes
