A Must Listen!
This podcast gives major NPR vibes with a nostalgic twist. Detailed and insightful research offered by Scott pairs perfectly with Steve's unconditional shock at any fact presented. A quick binge listen, this podcast will leave you wondering what you used to know just to offer prompts for future episodes that can't come soon enough! Their banter and quick wit (except for the Alexander Graham Bell pun, future listeners beware!) keeps topics light and engaging. Not to mention their charisma as hosts has me believing they've known each other forever. The only question I have is when will merch be available?
I think this earns me that linked-in connection
