Stuff You Should Know Reviews
How I’ve just found Josh and Chuck, well basically that’s a travesty!! I’ve flown almost 70,000 miles since May and they've been with me every step of the way. I’m absolutely a more well informed human by listening, all while having lots of laughs on the way. Thanks for such a great podcast guys, can’t wait for all the more stuff I should know!
This is my first podcast review. I love talk radio and podcasts but I still can’t find one that checks all the boxes for me personally. I’m a college educated married middle-aged woman with a grown child. I still like to continue learning so I try to find podcasts that not only educate me but steer clear of any political party influences. I also don’t like a bunch of snark or negativity as we get enough of that on a daily basis. The mark of a great podcast is if you get done listening to an episode and then immediately want to tell everyone you know to listen to it. You don’t feel apprehensive about recommending it either for fear it will offend someone because it’s just an overall educational positive experience. With that in mind I was searching for a podcast when I came across this one. I had heard it was supposed to be good so I said ok let’s give it a shot. I’ve listened to about 5 episodes and I’m going to stop now. Here’s why...when you see the title “Stuff you should know” you think ok here’s gonna be a podcast where it will be a deep dive into a topic. There will be a lot of research presented with audio clips of the events covered and interviews with experts on the topic etc...this is not that podcast. This is nothing more than 2 guys who have an interest in something (pry not even their interests it’s pry more like someone else giving them suggestions so you don’t even get the sense that these guys are really even that invested in all the topics so that makes it less interesting) so they Google the topic or watch a “based on” movie about the topic and then sit around and discuss it. Hmmm...if I wanted that I could research it myself. What this should have been called is “Stuff you should know...so go look it up”. This does nothing for me. If anything it makes me angry that I wasted my time actually thinking I would learn something more than what someone Googled or got from a movie. Another marker of a good podcast is if the host or hosts have pleasant interaction and banter (which these guys do that’s why this rating has one star as opposed to a zero even though they don’t have that option). Lastly I don’t care how interesting a topic is if the host themselves have vocal affectations that are annoying or get in the way of their delivery as it just ruins the whole podcast. The one host has a speech impediment - which if I was just talking to him on a daily basis wouldn’t bother me BUT to hear him do this long show with just takes me out of it and it’s like nails on a chalkboard. Therefore I can’t get through an episode without getting really frustrated. Perhaps they should have considered that before doing this podcast. He could have worked behind the scenes actually doing research and trying to secure audio footage or trying to get experts in to discuss the topics. Someone else with a more pleasant voice could have done the actual speaking part. I’m sure this guy is very nice so this is not trying to be mean it’s just pointing out something that should be obvious. Luckily for these hosts it seems like I’m in the minority with that opinion so take it for what it is. My search continues...
I LOVE THE SHOW SO MUCH I LISTEN TO IT EVERY NIGHT WHEN I GO TO BED!!! I KNOW THIS IS THE STARTER BUT IT’S TRUE!!!!!
This podcast doesn’t go in great depth on any subject, but if you’re like me and you know nothing on just about every subject, it’s a great time! I’ve learned a lot about topics I knew nothing about and have plenty of subjects to converse about now!
I’ve been listening to SYSK for about 5 years now! I travel a lot with my job and also listen a lot while I work on the yard. The research is well done and you both are honest if you’re not a hundred percent sure the fact is correct. The off topic conversations are hilarious and I feel like you guys think the same way I do, so I sometimes forget the main topic lol. (Easy Bake Oven Episode was one of the best) Keep up the great work, don’t change a thing!
The advertising is getting really annoying. But otherwise it’s very good.
The title of this review says it all. Come for the information, stay for the laughs. These are two genuinely great guys who do their best to “explain everything in the universe”. Every episode I find myself learning incredibly interesting facts and laughing out loud throughout! Do yourself a favor and start listening now.
Listen to you during work and really help me get through the stressful days— keep up the good work!

Luvluvluv Chuck& Josh !!!!! I walk dogs and look like a blithering idiot chuckling to myself as I walk about town!! They are so sweet and comical together I want to sing there theme song!
This is my favourite show on the stuff you should know network. Josh and chuck have a beautifully organic back and forth. They are always pushing out fantastic episodes and there is rarely a topic that I don’t find fascinating. Great way to spend a bus ride or commute home from work. Definitely worth a listen, I guaranteed you will find something you like. 10/10
I feel as if they should research their physiological/medical topics in greater depth- most of these episodes have a number of oversights and misinformation. Perhaps a lot of this could be avoided by ‘fact checking’ by a professional (appropriate for the topic discussed) before they actually release the episode.
Josh and Chuck's tangents are as good as the rest of the podcast. Let's just make a show of that. lol. Seriously though, the show is awesome! I never learned so much listening to this podcast. Keep up the good work!
For me they have the mix spot-on. Interesting and funny, 99% factual but with a dash of opinion to help you know the guy’s a bit, great rapport with each other, good voices (Josh’s voice...swoon), good production, wide range of topics. I very very rarely skip and episode but if I do it’s because it’s about US politics and not tolerable (boring or infuriating) to this Aussie - so it’s just my preference not a fault.
Absolute waffling rubbish.....steer clear!
Hello guys from down under. Your podcast helped me get through so many night shifts and now I’m listening to them on my commute to and from work. I’ve even started listening to all your older podcast, a wealth of knowledge and something to talk about at work. Love it keep them coming

Great, engaging hosts, with great sense of humour. Covers a huge range of topics that are well researched.
I love this podcast! Josh and Chuck are just the best! Funny, informative and easy to understand, you should give this a whirl!
I really want to like this podcast, going through their feed the topics they cover are really interesting & stuff I want to know(!) I just find it kinda boring. There's too much banter & not enough structure in how the details are delivered, there's a lot of jumping around. I feel they need to take a note from the Stuff you Missed in History Class ladies...
Despite living in Australia and not being able to relate to some subjects this is an amazing podcast and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Funny, Informative, Relaxing. Just do it!!!
good chat like the innane subjects nice to fall asleep to GB

SYSK is definitely my favourite podcast. Josh and Chuck make any topic interesting. Their presentation is very natural and makes it super-easy to learn new things. Love their random tangents. GB
You can't shake hands with a clenched fist.
