What a complete delight.
As a person who delights in trivial knowledge, but also appreciates a good rating scale for both creatures and things, I found this podcast positively enchanting. John’s delivery and writing is as solid here as it is in his long form narratives. I cannot wait to hear more, I can see this becoming easily my favorite podcast.
The dynamic duo
It’s John Green and Diet Dr. Pepper, it’s gonna be good!
I’m not sure how you made geese sound so relatable and interesting but I really loved it
