Heard you somewhere else

After hearing what you did for Daniel J Lewis episode 300 I knew I'd love your work so I'm happy to subscribe. Keep up the good work!!!!

Quick, Informative, & Entertaining

Most of the time, listening to a podcast is an hour long commitment, but I love these shorter episodes! They are fun to listen to and have information I don't already know (and I know a lot of random crap). Overall a great quality podcast, easy to fit in your lineup!

Great show!

Emily’s coverage of the Teddy Bear story was great! This was my first delve into The show but I’d highly recommend any listeners to this well produced show to learn fun facts behind everyday objects. She’s concise, well researched, and a delight to listen to!
