Michelle and Phil together! Awesome perspective on science.
I really enjoyed the first episode and thus, subscribed. Looking forward to more.
Keep it up!
Interested to hear more. As others said, Ive got it on my podcast shelf next to planetary radio and star talk now. I also enjoyed the background music being part of the show. It gave it a bit of a thematic atmosphere.
