Important and hilarious: I am constantly amazed at the nuance and thoughtful understanding of human history Amber and Anna manage to deliver in the guise of hilarious, quirky banter.

I enthusiastically recommend this podcast! These women are clever, highly educated, brilliant communicators, and very funny! The information conveyed is fascinating, and explained in a way that makes me feel like a colleague (not the durdur that I probably am in comparison). Their nerdy, witty humor is right up my alley, and I laugh out loud often. Love The Dirt!
