Customer Reviews


Of all the podcasts I listen to, this one has the silliest premise.

simple but effective

It's goofy. But funny. And brief. But interesting.

A really fun, nerdy break from longer shows

John's thorough approach to analyzing each potential robot is a delight, especially when Jason messes with him.
