Comparative Opinions: Initial Gut Reactions – Episode 16

Welcome to the Comparative Opinions podcast! This week, Holly and David get to talking about people’s gut reactions to things, gut reactions that go viral, gut reactions without having given the thing a chance first.

Comparative Opinions is a weekly half-hour-ish podcast hosted on ComparativeGeeks.com. Subscribe for new episodes every Sunday!
