A great podcast that will possibly help you on your next tricia night.
10+ stars! This is the Podcast that started it all for me. I even sought this site out solely for the purpose of expressing my genuine, undying and unabating (<--- ‽huh) way too serious love for this Podcast. Total transparency here, this is the only podcast I stream. The only others I even HEARD are the usual suspects that come in on the FM radio channel (I'll omit the 3 letter name 😉) THIS IS MOXIES REVIEW! && I LOVE YOUR (her) MIND! Moxie has made me feel I am allowed to be myself, not to have to 'dumb down' or whatever(I swear I'm not this pretentious, swear). Funny and smart can go hand in hand, and they do-quite beautifully . On this show. Listen or prepare to die! Yay
This podcast is chock-full of fascinating trivia like the best parts of rocky road ice cream! Moxie's voice is smooth and expressive, and she always sounds like she's having as much fun sharing the information as I have when listening. Even when she covers a topic I'm pretty familiar with, she always manages to surprise me.
Love this podcast! I drive a lot and Moxie keeps me entertained with her facts and wit.
Are you looking for a podcast that is amusing, stimulating, respectful and enjoyable? Do you want a host with a voice of silk and a subtle yet wicked sense of humour? Do you want to feel appreciated by the host as much as you appreciate her and all of her work? Do you want to listen to a podcast with your sweetheart and hear them say, "Are you supporting Moxie on Patreon yet?" (True!) YBOF is a perfect podcast - even the oldest episodes with minor sound quality issues. For the price of an overrated burned coffee product a month, Snickerdoodle asks you to give it to Moxie and YBOF instead. Keep this mellifluous treasure going for now and forever.
Your Brain on FactsWhen I read you review, I just had to sit there for a minute, completely blown away! :)
The first time I heard “Your Brain on Facts,” which was several months ago, I thought, “Too many superlatives. She’s writing her own reviews.” I was wrong. I apologize. Moxie, please forgive me. Let me know if sackcloth and ashes are necessary. All the reviews are justified and completely legit. I love the eclectic choices of topics, the segues, the “What the heck?” moments, but I especially love the parenthetical comments (“I would ask what the hell is wrong with David Lee Roth, but you didn’t sign on for a three-hour show”) and pop culture references (“like having DeeDee running Dexter’s Lab”). Start listening to this podcast. You will find nuggets in every episode to enjoy, and occasionally an episode will be all about that thing that you are all about. And that’s where I run out of superlatives, at least for today.
Your Brain on FactsThank you so much. I can't wait to read this on the show!
One of my favorite podcasts, I look forward to each weeks new episode. The content is well researched and presented in Moxie's amazing voice, take my word and give it a listen just on that merit alone. Also she introduces you to other podcasters thru guest presenter spots, I have found several new shows to listen to courtesy of YBOF. Check it out, you will be surprised how much you learn.
Moxie presents interesting facts in a voice that is easy to listen to
Long time listener, just took a while to get around to leaving a review. Moxie is the best and this is one of the only Podcast I listen to repeatedly. Not going to lie most of the time it's to help me get to sleep. Her voice is soothing and the facts help clear my head to get me too sleep. Then I'll wake up and usually listen too them on my way into work. Might be why I have about 10,000 listening hours.... Oops?
Been listening to this podcast for about a month now and have really enjoyed it. I like that the facts follow a bit of stream of consciousness in how they're presented so it never feels like a slog through a topic that might not always strike my fancy. Moxie's voice, of course I have to mention her voice, is mellifluous. Normally I get bored with shows with a single host but she mixes it up with other voices to read quotes or uses audio effects on her own voice to break up that monotony. I appreciate that the facts are well researched and don't come off as a BuzzFeed or Mental Floss "10 things you'll never believe..." type faux research. The facts are weird and wonderful!
Please, do yourself a HUGE favor, and listen to this podcast. This is the first podcast I've ever followed, and to say that I'm addicted, is an understatement! The topics are well-researched and just downright entertaining. And you can't beat the smooth dulcet tones of Moxie LaBouche. Moxie covers every topic from gallstone and kidney stones to the colors of food, Jewish people who authored popular Christmas songs, and, things that 80 kids were taught to fear. YBOF is without a doubt, the BEST podcast around!
Moxie is such an amazing host who beautifully explains all kinds of facts you had know idea that you needed to know. This podcast is well produced with great content. This is the only podcast I support on Patreon.
This podcast is guaranteed to interest you. Such a wide variety of topics delivered in a voice that is like melted butter. Moxie's pop culture references make even what could be mundane more fun. After listening once you will definitely find yourself wanting more. I always add episodes of this podcast to my queue. The best boredom breaker out there.
I listen to a lot of podcasts and this is one of the best. Moxie has a great voice and even greater attention to detail. Beautiful facts (with sources!) delivered in a lively and entertaining way. Never boring or dry I could (and have!) listened to her all day. Subscribe early, subscribe often!
Moxie covers an array of interesting topics with a touch of humor masterfully. She keeps me interested and always wanting more. I have listened to every episode.
Miss Moxie has a smooth voice, excellent transitions, a wonderful sense of humor and excellent topics discussed on the podcast. What more can you ask for except for more? Perhaps the back log? This pod has a pretty extensive one at over 100 episodes! I have been a pretty loyal listener for a few months, and it’s always the first thing I listen to when it drops. And the book is pretty spot on as well!
I sit through lots of long, and anxiety-producing medical procedures, and Moxie's voice helps to keep me calm and otherwise engaged. Her facts are well-researched and organized, and her dry wit is an absolute delight! Love this podcast!
It slices, it dices, it juliennes. This is the last podcast you'll ever need! Imagine NPR hosts reading Trivial Pursuit's original research while injecting appropriate yet colorful inflected shade where history and people got it wrong. You can gracefully transition your day from a morning run to a workplace emotional breakdown to a romantic evening by the fire with a charcuterie platter--all without changing your podcast listening.
What may seem like completely irrelevant facts have actually immensely enhanced my conversations. Somehow I end up using facts from the podcast in my conversations weekly! This is the very first podcast I ever listened to, and is pretty much my go-to! I have only ever strayed to listen to guest podcast channels. (Which are pretty good too) but Moxie is the best! She has the best way of adding humor and not to mention her smooth segways! Love love love it!
After my first listen I became an instant fan. Moxie has been on our podcast (two episodes, called Nooks and Crannies) and gotta say, she became an instant recurring guest! Love hearing all the facts and am about to order her book!!
