…First time reviewer.  Something You Should Know compliments everyone’s knowledge base and is a great source of really useful information presented in a very entertaining way.  Mike Carruthers is more than just a great host, he is a thoughtful and insightful interviewer and is just as interested in learning about the topic as the listener.  That makes the information relevant and relatable.  Highly recommended for everyone!
