This podcast is awesome. You should definitely listen to it. But, personally, I haven’t been able to listen since John said his voice made women horny. Because, ew.

Amazing show, I look forward to it every week. I’d donate to patreon, but like Morgan… Adam rides for free.

John & Ken are the best part of my week!!!! I have listened to all of the shows twice and am working on my third time through the shows. Hope to someday have enough money to be a Pateron supporter

Love the show One suggestion … “Rocky Horror Picture Show” I saw it back around 1979, I think. My daughter saw it a couple times. In 2024. Toast. Rice. Dialog. This is perfect for youse guys.

Ken and John, thank you 🙏 🤩 you guys make me happy, you make me laugh, and you make me feel safe in these strange times. All of your podcasts are funny, smart and I love them.

I don’t get the people angry about them taking so long to get to the topic. They’re entertainers, if you want a list of facts Google it, ding dongs. I listen and re-listen to Omnibus daily. John is so human that I sometimes forget how smart he is. The mispronunciations, the cryptic allusions...Read full review »

Meant to be intelligent. Their egos have caused them to be sucked in to the pile on of the greatest technologist and engineer in human history. Their based envy recorded for all time.

Just get to it, already!

Always a rollicking good time. Extra emphasis on the horror that is white people, as well as the horror that is beavers. Both groups being fully bent on fashioning the world exactly into what THEY want it to be.

Hard to believe I’ve been enjoying this podcast since 2017 and have been a proud Patreon supporter since the pandemic. Doing my civic duty as a fan to push down white supremacists and concern trolls.

This is hands down my favorite podcast. It is endearing and informative. I love the friendship and quick banter between these two. I hope they continue for a long time to come.

Gen-X white racist culture denigration is my love language and boy, do these guys deliver! Endlessly fascinating episodes and their opening theme slaps!
Persistentgaze via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/16/24
Sped up they don’t last as long, but the laughs last longer. These guys are brilliant together. Def the best podcast.
Chi Chi Watson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/12/24
John & Ken deliver a warm and funny reading of unique and far flung tidbits from recent history, powered by their enjoyable banter, liberally sprinkled with tales of John’s long-ago walking trip across Europe, WWII airplanes, Gen Ex / Millennial adjacent pop culture and occasional mentions...Read full review »

Please continue your clear and obvious agenda against whites. 🤣

I used to love the show and I still do. I have listened to every episode except a couple that looked sorta gross. Keep on truckin'!Read full review »
Freerangemink via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/24
It's the perfect combination of information and nonsense. In my opionion, the best podcasts are the ones where you learn something, and the ones where you're just listining to friends having a good conversation; this one is both. As a Seattle-area native, it's also suprisingly...Read full review »
MandyO2377 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/24
As many of the reviews state, it’s a roiling cesspool of drivel and unrelated chatter that wanders like a unwatched, intact bloodhound. Sometimes it takes 40 mins to get to the topic itself. They’re semi-offensive to countless cultures including those of all color and continent including...Read full review »
I like Filson too. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/24
Each episode gives a glimpse into a very specific bit of ephemera from history. The topic is discussed with intelligent, and not precious, humor. One of the hosts was “canceled” at a point in the past for suggesting his daughter should know how to use a can opener. The other is the 2nd name...Read full review »
Falling Short via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/24
This is by far my favorite podcast, featuring two very smart, witty guys (one indie rocker and one “Jeopardy!” star) who delve into all sorts of fascinating stories, from the invention of Doritos to the world’s catchiest pseudo-English Italian pop song to the time St. Nicholas punched a guy in...Read full review »

Omnibus has been the highlight of my weekly podcast rotation for years now. Its strangely rare to have access to Gen X voices; John and Ken never disappoint. The weekly dynamic always puts me in mind of late night conversations with sadly absent friends. Thanks for keeping the show alive...Read full review »

Love this podcast - have been listening since the beginning and never get bored of their conversations.
poppa jonesy via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/27/24
As a Jamaican I couldn’t stop cringing and had to stop listening. It was giving civil war described by the south vibes. One of the hosts was especially unbearable - unclear why he spoke about reggae music when he doesn’t enjoy it. Would recommend either bringing in Jamaican recording...Read full review »

I listen every week and I really enjoy the clever anecdotes and quick witted banter of the friendship which is recorded for posterity.
JyoshuaCade via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/17/23
I could only listen to so much racism towards white people. After listening to 200+ episodes that I loved based on the content, it was hard to get past the constant degradation of all things white (particularly white southern) people have ever done. Literally every show has overtones of how bad...Read full review »

My regular ‘learn a history lesson’ pods were giving me the sads and somehow I stumbled on this gem. Super duper detailed? No, but I can go elsewhere for that. Informative storytelling sandwiched between random but pleasant yammering? Yes, and that’s exactly what I want right now. Plus I feel...Read full review »

So many obscure references and extra fun for residents of Seattle.
Colindro "THE DAMAGER" via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/18/23
For example the podcast site still reads that two shows per week. It’s now one lone show.
ScootDolor via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/16/23
This program had really fallen off, so don’t feel bad about unsubscribing, especially since Ken Jennings has been crossing the picket line in the writer’s strike.
mattfargo via Apple Podcasts · Japan · 05/18/23
Not my favorite but worth a listen. I find their conversations interesting, though sometimes they do lean into old white man points of view …well mostly Roderick (example:his talk of an interest in women half his age)
#lika loves cats via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/13/23
Buried inside an ocean of mediocre banter.
Thorium9000 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/20/23
They come at some well trod podcast topics from interesting angles and add new information I hadn’t heard before AND cover topics I’ve never heard discussed. I got here via that Sight and Sound episode recommended on the Blank Check subreddit. I bounced around through some other topics I was...Read full review »

I am a tween jeopardy fanatic that came to this through looking up Ken Jennings on podcasts. Good podcast and will be good for SYSK lovers and haters alike.

Offering very little detail content but two uninformed folks going on and on and on about nothing

This podcast is everything Marxism promised fortified with entertaining curiosities.

Add it to your list. Right now.
duluthten via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/19/22
I never miss an episode. These 2 raconteurs can stretch a yarn out for my entire commute Edit: John purposely mispronounces anything he can. Don’t be mad, it’s a bit, and when you know that it becomes funny
jjjjjj1977 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/16/22
I stopped listening to SYSK because I kept hearing incorrect information. The Omnibus guys get it right more often. And their topics are more interesting.

Began April 1, 1963. Just learned this from Luke and Laura on general hospital episode. That was my sixth birthday being born on April 1, 1957! During the summertime growing up during the sixties and seventies I would watch both one life to live and next would be general hospital. It took no time...Read full review »

Some rambling. Some smart. Some funny. Lots of interesting. Overall good.

I am leaving a three star review because Ken told me to.
Jon-O-Pods via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/06/22
I found this through the late Friendly Fire podcast, and it has quickly become one of my favorites. The banter between John and Ken are great and I never feel like there is never a dull moment. I learn a lot of trivia as well. Their Patreon is also really great and I love the addendum episodes.

Love this podcast. Ken and John are great. Definitely compatible with Marxism.

There are so many reasons to like this podcast, but I think the best one is the eclectic soup of the whole thing. During the duration of each episode I feel like I've been on a journey, not only to some real and fantastic place and/or event, but also into the inner-workings of the minds of...Read full review »
