Customer Reviews

Great content

The content was great and the show is very easy to listen to. I appreciate the calmness of the broadcast. You don't need "exciting" intros and to talk upbeat and loud to be a good show. It's part of the reason that Radio Lab is so great. If you change one thing, please get rid of the cookie thing. Do you know what it's like to listen to someone (not yourself) eat a fudge cookie with headphones on? My stomached is unsettled and I can't wrap my head around the idea that you would do this at the end of every podcast. I hate to be brutally honest but no one cares about you commenting on cookies. (describe, chew, comment "mmm, this is soo good", etc.) Other than that, you hit the nail on the head. Great show with a bright future.

Literally, a joy to listen to

Literally, a joy to listen to. Yeah, I said it twice.

Please stop eating while on mic

This is a great podcast. It's very educational with a lot of good work and research put into it. It would have got five stars but the cookie bit is very disturbing to listen to. The first two episodes made me cringe hearing you eat and moan after every bite...gross
