This show is so delightful and I love the host, I hope it's not gone forever!!!
Wonderfully nerdy and fun
This is a delightful show with an awesome premise (pick a random article on Wikipedia and go as deep as possible to find out more). It's all fuelled by May Jasper's boundless curiosity and edgy wit. Tiny brown moths! Model airports on Hamburg! Who knew such topics could be this interesting? It's May's special gift to make them so.
For anyone who loves to learn
After binging on the short first season, I now have full faith in creator May Jasper to turn literally any Wikipedia article into something interesting. She's your personal learning guide that goes out and discovers what the deal is with any subject and walks you through it with excitement and humor. This is a must listen for widely curious people.
