Both are engaging speakers and have great personalities, but they tend to go down leftist rants.

I love to listen to this show when I’m having a less-than-stellar day. These guys make me laugh and teach me about all kinds of fascinating stuff that I would otherwise probably never encounter. No matter how much of a funk I’m in, I always feel better after I listen to this podcast!

I just learned that John is an alien because he thinks that Michael Richards played Kramer on Friends. (That racist jerk was on Seinfeld, silly)!

This has fast become my favorite podcast as someone who loves learning about random things. Ken and John are both knowledgeable, personable hosts seeming to speak off the cuff regarding very interesting, lesser known topics. They'll go on tangents and sound like nerds, but they're always...Read full review »

I really enjoy these guys. They have a great chemistry together which has proven to be my absolute favorite podcast to listen to when I just need something to think about that doesn’t hit the panic button. My amygdala appreciates the chance to chill out and still learn something!

• I snort-laughed 4 times during this episode. • I also learned the names of 2 great, but fictional demons (improvised, believe).👺👹 • I ALSO also learned the name of a fictional, elderly (but accomplished), blind blues player. • I even learned that America’s great, festering cultural divide is...Read full review »

This show is awesome. Makes random history super interesting, and always gives unique perspectives on things. I love when they use the word adjacent.

Oh come on, John, give iTunes a profile pic to use!
Freerangemink via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/11/22
This is one of my favorite podcasts. They cover so many interesting things and have introduced me to topics I wouldn’t have otherwise known about. In one episode you can have Queen lyrics referenced, get a Simpsons quote, and get a history lesson, all while laughing!

Insightful, informative and often humorous conversations with interesting topics covered. Well done. I’m glad I accidentally discovered this podcast.
shikawgo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/16/22
I love the conversations they have… and I enjoy staying to hear the topic of each episode too!

Very good
Jake.DeAn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/08/21
If you are a fellow sentient aspen looking for a break from the droning voices and re-hashed true crime stories of all other human-era podcasts, then look no further! Ken and John deliver a delightful tour of esoteric human culture and miscellaneous trivia, while stubbornly refusing to pronounce...Read full review »

Wonderful podcast. Two great, smart guys and funny intelligent conversation. I love listening while out walking my dog or cooking dinner. No matter the topic it’s a fun listen. Thanks Ken and John!
domo819 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/22/21
Is there no script, or are these guys intentionally stumbling over words, interrupting one another, hesitating, and repeating themselves? Given their breadth of knowledge, it’s disappointing that the delivery is so unprofessional.
Pisces520223 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/20/21
Get off of Twitter, it’s always wrong.
GBO the hedgehog via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/18/21
Omnibus is by far my favorite podcast. I love these guys - I always laugh and I always learn something interesting!
BradPDX via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/10/21
Listening to Ken and John help me fill every nook and cranny of my brain with random info. My mental hoarding tendencies are rewarded and my ability to start every sentence with the phrase “Did you know?” has greatly increased. Great Work y’all.
Aaron Hyman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/24/21
This is such a great, fun podcast with two hosts that fit perfectly together. Smiles all around!
Lauramacky via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/21
Snippets of history and wacky instances of humanity. I miss the Friendly Fire war movie podcast J Rod used to be a part of, and this scratches that itch. The chemistry between Ken and John is great!
Noose Brighthawk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/11/21
I enjoy hearing a new episode, but am surprised at how much I love relistening.
Ropapro via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/06/21
Far and away the best show in my weekly cycle. Witty and informative.
Diez Trash Kilometers via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/05/21
I purposely hold off on listening episodes in order to binge later. Really enjoy listening to the varied interesting topics from these two Entertaining and Intelligent Hosts ✌️✌️
RogerEyesR via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/16/21
It is such a pleasure to listen to two intelligent, clever guys, with large vocabularies, discuss all manner of topics. (No offense to the boys at Ice Cream Social). Every show is packed with information on all menner of topics and laughs. Keep it up Ken and John!
IWANNASCOOPBABY via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/21
My favourite podcast. Interesting history lessons turned into epic shaggy dog stories. Ten stars.
Sulphuric via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/09/21
The topic is never the point, it’s the interaction between John and Ken that keeps me anticipating each and every entry!
Mr Downing Woodworking via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/09/21
Don’t listen to the woke mob and cancel culture enthusiasts that seem to think they’re just magnificent parents, yet keep raising new generations of entitled “confused” junkies with anxiety and depression who know very little, accomplish much less, whine about everything and fancy themselves as...Read full review »

I enjoy this podcast in general but the episode on the Port Chicago Disaster was outstanding. First in choosing an episode I’ve never heard of and second in weaving together all of the contextual racism surrounding it.
LilithHomer via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/19/21
This is, by far, my favorite podcast. The range and depth of topics, the wittiness of the hosts, the laid-back conversation all contribute to an enjoyable hour or so twice a week. If you like the trivial, the obscure, the fascinating, the quirky, you will find no better destination for your ears.
sac-eats via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/15/21
The show switched over to patreon support, where high paying subscribers can select topics. The quality of the user suggested topics has lagged behind initial high quality of the show. Jon has become a megadouche since he made his own additional Patreon, which he also constantly plugs. It’s a...Read full review »
beaveraspen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/21
Started listening to this in the beginning, now just savor each new episode and try to stay a few episodes behind so I never run out. Ken and John are hysterical in that way that only smart people can be, they don’t take themselves too seriously, and the topics are totally unpredictable and...Read full review »
Zyngaddict via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/13/21
Too heavy on woke contemporary opinion, and, the liberal apologist coloring of historic contextualization. John is an expert musician and Ken possess a game show expert’s knowledge base. Neither however humbly recognize that perspective is as nuanced as opinions and experiences are varied. The...Read full review »

My favorite podcast. Learn something with funny and likable hosts.

It is your density.
I<3PapaSmurf via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/21
I love it. These guys are terrific at podcasting and choose great topics.
Underwater55 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/01/21
Just started listening in the last few months, started somewhere around the cadaver synod. Really enjoy the casual banter and references. You don’t have to be an expert on something or know all the sides of a story to make an entertaining commentary. Lots of dumb, easy influenced/tricked...Read full review »

John talks out of his butt a lot, but that’s part of his charm. Ken is Ken.
Anthony Wilson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/07/21
if they talk about sports its experimental. rest is grate
Internetmeinung via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 05/07/21
Love this podcast. Ken and John are great.
Smokeybiker1 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/07/21
Truth be told, I skip John’s turn at hosting 95% of the time. In a word, he is inept. I love everything about Ken as a host. In a word, BRILLIAN (In both the American use of the word, as well as, the British use of the word.)
Janet in San Clemente via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/21
I love this show, but for two educated men, not knowing anything about the true pronunciation of this amazing woman’s name, and then making fun of Ken’s daughter for questioning it, is sad. I’ll go ahead and direct you to the “Stuff You Should Know” episode about her. Maybe you should do your own...Read full review »

Love you both so much, and the commentary before getting into a subject is the best part.
Danno Jurrano via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/25/21
Just get to the point.
Apple springs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/21
I love this smart, charming podcast, and look forward to the latest episode every Tuesday and Thursday. (The one-star reviews are part of an ugly public shaming campaign against one of the hosts; you should ignore them.)
