Recently happen upon this podcast and I am addicted. It makes me want to go back to school and follow my dream, even though I'm 37 (Studied something else and burned myself out and dropped out, which wasn't worth all that work and health issues.) I can't wait to listen to more.

I listen to Ologies because #1 I learn wonderful and obscure things and #2 it's like getting an on-demand hug in your ear holes. Thanks, Dad Ward!

Relatively new listener here! Migrated over on the advice of Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying from the dark horse podcast. Absolutely loving all the episodes I've watched thus far. The only thing I wish was added is just that the podcasts be numbered. Sometimes there are multiple episodes and I often like to re-listen to them and having them numbered would make it much easier to find them again. Keep up the amazing work! I feel smarter everyday!

Adorably energetic and wonderful to listen to

This podcast is a tonic. Alie is delightful. Thank you for not continually doing episodes on covid-19. This podcast is such a healthy, positive, educational escape. It also gives my daughter and I fodder for great conversations. (Keep the profanity.) 😁 Thank you!

The best, nerdiest bits of science of all kinds. I always look forward to new episodes!

Amusing, informative and useful, every time!

This podcast could have been so much better and sharable with my granddaughter if the language was kept family-friendly. Podcasts with information like this would be a great introduction to STEM topics.

I love this podcast. Even the episodes that don't sound like they're gonna be up my alley I find super interesting and fun. Keep up the excellent work!

Love this podcast, each episode is always interesting and funny

I love how you cover all the topics. I just listened to your kalology episode and it really spoke to me. I work with girl guides and so I'm always looking for different ways to talk to the girls about stuff like this and body image etc.

I've learned so much from this show! Thank you!

Incredible way of making everything interesting. Alie gets so into the subject, every episode, making it seem like the most fascinating thing in the world for an hour.

Fun and informative. Love it

I could listen to Alie forever. I love her energy, her honesty, her enthusiasm for so many topics, both everyday and unusual. Excellent podcast.

Great idea for a podcast. Each week is a deep dive into a totally different subject. Allie Ward is really good at what she does.

I never thought a podcast could be so wholesome with genital jokes and swears, but Alie Ward is an exceptional interviewer. Kid friendly versions of the show are available on the website for those who might want this sort of thing, but EVERYONE should be checking this out. You will laugh and cry and have to call your friends to tell them what you just heard. Also, the Facebook group is full of the most benevolent humans. Please listen.

Interesting and varied subjects. The host is fun, the only issue is she feels the need to pop at men sometimes. Bit unnecessary! But generally fun and informative.

I was introduced to Ologies sometime last year. I have laughed. I have cried. I have felt all the feels.
I am a Sexuality and Gender educator in Sinixt territory attempting aspiring allyship as well. I am so proud to listen to you use your episodes in this way! The exposure to silenced voices is like balm on our hearts.
Please do more 30 scientist/experts episodes!

Ologies, my fav podcast ... fascinating, informative and hilarious all at the same time. Love your work Alie

Have listen to Alie and ologies for a year now. Clearly one of the best podcasts! Each episode allows me to keep my mind thinking, asking, and learning. So important in our increasingly anti-learning environment.
Thank you for spreading science and learning!

Warning, this podcast will get you interested in aspects science you never thought as interesting

The host and guests are so passionate about what they discuss, so much interesting information in this, it's really engaging

Would recommend the "TWIV podcast" for anyone looking to learn anything and everything about cobid.

Alie has so much joy about each and every topic (even the random side topics) it's hard to dislike any of them. Each ology I find to be more interesting than I ever thought it would be and I'm often sharing the things I've learned. Have I made a sourdough starter and named it Seamus Breadly? Yes I have. Do I now count penguins online for science? Of course I do! I'm not DIYing taxidermy...yet. Definitely a danger of the show, be prepared to love a whole bunch of things you never expected to.

This podcast is so good that I save the episodes for the times when I'll pay the most attention to them. No sleepytime listening, I might miss part of it! Alie is great and weird in the most wonderful ways.

Very interesting but the random cut ins are distracting (especially the sound boards), it would be good there were a way to distinguish when she's speaking during the interview and when she's speaking over

Ologies is my most favorite. It has made quarantine bearable. Alie Ward and I apparently have the same brain. This show is Adhd brain friendly.
I got a tattoo pertaining to ornithology based on this show. So... yeah. :)

Enthusiastic, educational and entertaining. Dad Ward delivers.

Here's the thing, I don't always love Alie. Sometimes our her personality grates on mine, and I have to take a break from listening. The great thing about her though is that she it 100% her, and that along with her excellent questions is what always keeps me coming back to this podcast. Honestly I think that's one of the biggest compliments I can give someone, and its why you should give this podcast a try.

Entertaining & Educational: One of my fav podcasts as it's knowledge osmosis without needing a hammer or causing drowsiness. The people Alie interviews have true passion about their field which is so engaging as a listener. Alie is also an attentive listener/interviewer to the expert and knows when to let them talk and when to add a question. I would partially agree with some other reviews about Alie's Asides being irrelevant and sometimes a little annoying, however, most of them are useful.

This is such a great podcast, and I'm really happy I'm able to rate it now (my app didn't allow it until just now). The scientists are great, the topics are awesome, and Alie is amazing. I always end up learning way more than I think I will. I listen to this while I carpool or lately while running. It's so great!!

Some topics sound boring at first but listening to the episode usually proves otherwise. The topics cover a range of subjects, as long as they end in an -ology. The passion each guest has for their subject always shines through, making the guests relatable. Alie is a terrific host with excellent questions and her way with people is amazing. Very entertaining and informative podcast.

Nah. Didn't enjoy it. The author is annoying.
Apr 13 2020
I love this podcast. Always informative, with fantastic people.
Apr 12 2020
Always interesting, funny and open minded! So many sciences that I didn't even know of before that I now want to study full time! Everyone should listen!
