"First off, I love Wendy Zukerman. She's funny, punny and just a delight in general. She is genuinely excited about the subjects and it's easy to hear. In my opinion, Wendy and her team are very good at triangulating the information and viewing the subject from different sides. This podcast is very insightful. Whether you're a kid or an adult, you'll be enlightened in many ways. "

"Awesome!1 Well researched, professional production values, entertaining, informative. Applying scientific method and evaluation to sometimes controversial topics. Does a great job sorting fact from fiction. If you like science, facts, or just curious about topics analysed in each episode, give it a listen, consistently great!!"
