Where did these "hosts" come from, public access television?
The premise is similar to Mythbusters: Take a common legend and do a little leg work to find out if it is fact or fiction. Unfortunately, the most obvious "fact" revealed is that the hosts are annoying. Josh reads a canned question he has been thinking about for at least a week when he's not playing on his Xbox against other dweebs, and Candace reads a poorly wrtten answer. Josh then pretends that this is all "new" and "exciting" (as if this is the first time he heard the truth revealed). It's fairly obvious he has already heard the answer about half a dozens times in rehearsal for the podcast, but that's the "fiction" of the whole thing. This podcast should take a page from the Slate Explainer podcast and drop the hosting down to one, eliminate the sophmoric banter, and just explain whether the legend is fact or fiction. That would be a five star podcast.Read full review »

I just wanted to say that I love listening to this podcast! I've learnt so much over the past couple of weeks and it's also motivated me to exercise while I listen.
