Never left a review for anything in my life, but I really, really love this podcast. It sounds corny but it feels like these guys have been a big part of my life the last four years since discovering this podcast. Awesome, awesome job and here's to many more years. Honestly, thank you.

Love this podcast.

For the last few years I have subscribed to this Podcast and haven't been disappointed yet. Josh and Chuck (and before Chuck) have presented an honest and genuine explanation to topics that have also changed my perspective on life in general. Well researched, clumsy at times, funny and genuine. Love these guys and couldn't recommend more.

I love these guys! The shows are informative, easy to digest material presented in an unbiased and friendly manner. You really feel like Josh and Chuck are your good pals that just happen to be very intelligent and enjoy talking about interesting subjects. If you like learning, you'll love SYSK.

So informative!

One of my favorite things to listen to on my way to work and home again. Thanks for teaching me about a lot of things I didn't know much about!

The wide variety of topics means I never get bored listening to this, and the interaction between Chuck and Josh is endearing. They strike a good balance between conversation and information.

Great podcast, I've been listening for a couple of years now, and they're consistently enjoyable. The hosts are affable, well researched, and conversational. They do go off on tangents on totally unrelated subjects- but those conversations are often times just as interesting as the subject at hand. Highly recommend.

I have been listening to this podcast for several years now. I thought I had already written a review but apparently not. I have listened to every single podcast and always find it amazing. Yes, even the short ones before "Chuckers" joined. Give it a listen and you won't turn back! The diversity and coverage that these two do is amazing.

Always interesting and fun.

I look forward to these dudes chatting every week - they're so nice and have a great relaxed dynamic that puts me at ease. Also very informative! They try hard to be accurate while sensitive.

I love everything about this podcast. Chuck and Josh help my commutes and long work days go by a little faster. Folks more interested in the raw data side of research might find SYSK a little too informal, but I love all the off the wall topics and banter.

Fun and Informative!

This is pretty much the only podcast I listen to! I love listening to these guys, their new episodes and the old. They really try hard to find out what they can about a subject and relay the info in a way that is relatable. Pretty funny and very informative.Don't rely on them for pronunciations though. 😁

Just started listening within the last year so I love that there is a huge library of episodes to listen too. Wide variety of subjects, fun hosts... entertaining entertainment! Keep it up!

Josh and Chuck have done something amazing

I'm embarrassed to admit how long it took me to write a review. This podcast has actually changed my life. Not only did it rekindle my excitement for learning, but I feel so connected to the hosts. I can't believe how many people complain about their "tangents"! It's what makes the podcast fun and easy to listen to. Who wants to listen to a million facts side by side? And for those complaining about them not getting 100% of the information right, you need to relax with the witch hunting. If you actually listened to the podcast, they preface their episodes all the time by telling us that they are not professionals in whatever they may be discussing and that they will not be getting everything right-that's partially what the listener mail is for. They constantly read corrections at the end of their episodes. They cover such a vast range of topics and get 99% of correct, why focus on the 1% that isn't? Anyway, I truly looked forward to new episodes every Tuesday and Thursday and am so happy they added SYSK Selects on Saturdays as a bonus. I tell everyone about this podcast but it's hard to get people who have never listened to podcasts, or don't know what they are, to listen on their own. If you're reading this, I suggest starting with How Chili Peppers work. It's one of my favorites and they're just extra silly in that episode.

Entertaining and Informative

I bust through 2-3 episodes a day, throughout my 45 mins drive to work and repetitive tasks that come up day to day. I feel like I'm actually accomplishing something during those otherwise brain dead activities. I love Josh's humor and Chuck always brings joy with his chuckles. Great listen, for reals! The wide variety of topics always guarantees something that will interest any listener.

I have been listening to this podcast in the lab for a couple of years now. You can tell these guys are smart and are true pros at the podcast game. The topics are sometimes "odd" such as how ketchup works, but I always seem to come away fascinated. Really impressed that they can put out two new hour long podcast a week that are always well researched and professionally done. My favorite so far "Southerners Aren't Lazy and Dumb, They Just Had Hookworm". Thanks for making my benchwork even more enjoyable.

My Friends & Family are over this podcast...

... b/c I am so much more awesome now. I had a bar conversation about non newtonian fluid yesterday. My daughter knows way more about wooly mammoths from me then she wants and my wife continues to be unimpressed by my faux knowledge of champagne and breast feeding. You guys are the best. Thanks for keeping me company on my commute everyday and making it feel worthwhile.

I've always been a fan of talk radio, both NPR and local morning comedy, but I was hesitant to jump into podcast. One day I was listening to a radio program about podcast and it mentioned "Stuff You Should Know" as a good starter podcast. Sure is! Not only have I become a huge fan of Jose and Chuck but also the whole crew of podcast from How Stuff Works. From the podcast I've dived into many more. I wanted to thank you for the great work you do and for opening me to the world of podcast.

The only podcast I make a point to catch. Learned so much about so many topics. Been surprised, touched and amused. Shared the chemistry between Josh and Chuck with family and friends. Like sitting in on that favorite professor's class. Don't miss it!

Listening to news & politics is so stressful lately SYSK provides a fun diversion. Its informative but relaxing, makes complex issues more accessible, and takes the edge off of even the most serious topics with a good dose of humor- good job guys ;)

Love this podcast. It is extremely informative, topics are interesting, well researched and seemingly chosen at random. I also appreciate the fact that they generally keep politics out of the conversation, it's nice not to have the hosts political views crudely crammed into a podcast like most hosts do.

Great information, always entertaining

Josh and Chuck have mastered the format of information dense, but still entertaining and informative broadcasting. Their banter is light, but adds needed color and balance to whatever subject matter they tackle.

I bothers me when I see negative reviews of this podcast. There's a lot of tongue in cheek here yet most negs wanna complain about a lack of historical documentation to which I say, if you're researching your dissertation this might not be the source for you. However, if you seek entertainment, Josh and Chuck are immensely charismatic fellows without axes to grind. Their voices are calming and agreeable. I've heard Chuck say supposably rather than supposedly on a couple of occasions but living in Georgia will do that to you. I believe the boys have clocked near a thousand casts if not more so detractors, how's your pet project progressing?

Love to listen to when cleaning!

Sometimes interesting, but you might learn more by Googling it yourself. Often it seems as if they have done little to no research. They often have no experience with the topics and their research is superficial, at best.
