The joy is in the journey
This podcast is not only a thoroughly enjoyable celebration of knowledge, but also a celebration of the journey to obtain it. The topics chosen at the beginning lead to unexpectedly delightful places, but never to an end point. Instead, we are left with the possibility of another journey and an implied invitation to chart our own course in the pursuit of wonder. Well done, lads.
A Sense of Wonder
A very engaging podcast that nourishes the mind and soul with wide-ranging stories of human endeavors. Rekindle your sense of wonder about the world.
Full of crazy interesting info and stories
This podcast finds the best, weirdest, most obscure and most interesting parts of Wikipedia and brings them to life by sharing how all things are seemingly connected in often bizarre and hilarious ways. The hosts do a great job of giving good fun facts while keeping the story moving.
I would hate to play Trivial Pursuit against these guys.
