My new favorite podcast
Getting Doug with High brought me here!
Funny & entertaining
All of the guests have been great! The comedians & scientists/engineers have all had great chemistry with the host. Perfect combination of informative and entertaining.
...They sometimes get a liiittle off track, but that's usually because the guest scientist's work is so fascinating that it's easy to focus too much on their experiences vs the science of the movies.
Keep it up!
I ❤️ this podcast
I just listened to my first episode on ALIENS and I enjoyed it immensely. Will definitely be listening to more.
