Ok the facts are interesting and well researched,But the main thing is that these guys are nice, real, and they like the work and they like each other. People I want to spend time with no matter what they’re talking about.
Google’s slogan used to be “don’t be evil” but they dropped that over time as their tentacles wiggled deeper and deeper into peoples personal information. SYSK’s unofficial slogan regarding the editorial nature of the show was “don’t yuck someone’s yum”. Recently I heard Josh say he’s gotten lenient on himself and that he feels more free to yuck yums when he finds it appropriate. The problem is when you start to yuck the yum of people who just don’t think like you. I’m not talking about being cool with cannibalism. But ya gotta understand that people are born with different ways of applying value. Conservatives and Liberals can’t help it. So when you yuck someone for voting for the other guy, that’s like yucking them for having dark skin or light skin depending on the case. I don’t vote. I used to. I was conservative until I realized that, like all people who call themselves liberal or conservative, I was under a spell. And life stunk because I was always T-O’d at the “other side”. Anyway…tangent…Just…come on. Don’t be dumb. You guys were my two best friends I’d never met. But you’re so entrenched in the mind virus of being opinionated that, even as someone who isn’t opinionated, I find it hard to enjoy learning about things from you.
Thanks for casually dissing a profession during your X-ray show and undermining people’s health. Sending kids through college is the only reason X-rays are taken. This is something that people ‘should’ know.
Was interested to learn about transcendentalism… 12 minutes in and they’ve talked more about everything other than transcendentalism. Guess that’s what I get for thinking 2 old white dudes would be interesting.
I absolutely love this podcast. I just recently started listening to podcasts. Before this one, I found it so hard to listen to them, mainly because people aren't interesting enough. But this one is great. I listen to you guys every morning at 3 am while I’m setting up at work. Maybe it’s the quirky personalities or the 1 1/2x speed giggles, whatever it is, I love it. I love the time you guys put into each episode and each topic. You guys are so funny and make any topic sound interesting. Thank you for this. Thank you for starting my mornings off right
One of the best things I stumbled into in my whole life
I’ve been listening to SYSK for about 7 years now. This podcast is seriously one of the best things that has happened to me in my life. I have spent some of my most intimate times of solitude listening to Josh and Chuck talk about some of the most interesting subjects that anyone could discuss.
Refreshing and fun, thoughtful, enduring and curious. Their easy, respectful banter and friendship shine through as does their keen ability to sift through info and share it with wonder. Pod hall of fame!!! Thank you
Always informative and the hosts are both sweet, funny fellas doing their best. My only issue is that the music before and after commercials is sometimes rather loud, abrupt, and high energy, which makes this a podcast I can’t always put on when Im trying to sleep.
