  • Stop procrastinating and listing to this show now!

    I was in love with the humor and information packed into every episode from the very first drawn out “hey” that came out of Alie’s mouth. But a few episodes in I became self conscious that I did not have a passion for anything like the amazing ologists on the podcast. It took a few more episodes to realize that my passion isn’t one subject, but other people nerding out on their passions! So when I grow up (already 34, not sure when you “officially” grow) I want to be Alie Ward. more

    Not the rambling of this annoying lady’s brain interrupting every five minutes. Must be an American thing.

    The best part of waking up? Ologies in your metaphorical cup! Alie Ward has completely transfixed the science-hungry brains of myself and my 8 year old son. We LOVE her engaging, hilarious, and insightful comments and her guest choices are top notch and vibe perfectly with her through these episodes. Ologites for life!

  • The most fun lectures ever!

    I continue to be amazed at this woman. Allie is such an amazing interviewer - she asks the questions I wish I would have thought of. I have learned so much, and have been exposed to so many wonderful ologists, and especially women. I keep encouraging anyone I meet to listen to this podcast. There are a few podcasts I like, but this one is by far, far, far is my most favorite.
