Had I realized when buying this it was largely half a dozen podcasts with nearly identical lead-ins, I, a Bryson and science aficionado, wouldn’t have felt it a bad deal.
The subject matter—what little there was of it, was interesting. It needed more, much more, and editing into a single work.
Bryson and cast were good, but they merely grazed over random subjects. It isn’t a coherent whole, merely snacks for short attention spans.

I absolutely loved the content, but I was deeply confused by the packaging. This is a podcast by any other name. It should be sold as such, and not for the same price as a magnum opus like A Short History of Nearly Everything. I would love to subscribe to it as a series, either for a couple bucks and episode or for a feed with ads.
It should also have a skip-ahead function so that you don’t hear the same outro/intro six times in the middle.
Love to see Audible producing more Bryson audio content, but this is not the right way to package/price/monetize it.

I love Bill Bryson, so was excited when this become available for preorder without the length specified. Turns out be four episodes of some vague series, totalling barely two hours.
What there was was interesting, but I had hoped for another BB epic.

I Pre-ordered this book having been catched by the introduction of it, thinking it could be a neat distraction. But to call this a book is laughable, its 1 hour of intessting curiosities and an hour with the author... and not even that its probably 20 mins of music as introduction to every story... This is actually the first time im considering getting my money back from audible
