Hilarious! Fantastic guests! And informative too!
An amazing blend of brain-stretching science news and side-splitting comedy. The guests are amazing from the most recent discoveries to blockbuster sci-fi films. Jimmy, Owen, Kevin and Griff are hilarious! I'm hooked.

Goldilocks Zone of Comedy and Science
This is my favorite podcast that has more than one host. Kevin gets really interesting guests who are doing fascinating work and actually lets them talk about it. Owen, Jimmy, and Griff all do a great job of making the conversations entertaining and more relatable for your average person. I think SYJ has the perfect balance, not too much science and not too much comedy, it's just right.
