Baby Geniuses Podcast Review

Baby Geniuses is a show for people who know stuff and people who don’t know stuff.” Unsurprisingly, two comedy writers can write a better description of their own podcast than anyone else. The only way to describe this podcast is that: two very funny people who both know stuff and don’t know stuff share knowledge.

The Hosts: Lisa Hanwalt and Emily Heller come together to form the Baby Geniuses. Lisa is the creator and showrunner of Netflix’s Tuca & Bertie, a gig she landed after many years in cartooning. Emily is a comedy writer and standup, having made appearances on Conan.

The Guests: The express purpose of Baby Geniuses is to get Emily and Lisa – who claim they don’t know stuff – to interact with people who know stuff. Guests on the show, are people who know stuff and are there to share knowledge. These guests can be intelligent people from all over the world, from doctors to other comedians.

Why You Have to Listen: Learning is a great activity, but it’s not always interesting. With two comedy writers on board, becoming a person who knows stuff is easy with Baby Geniuses. Emily and Lisa are hilarious and play off each other well and ask great questions. It’s a silly podcast, but also a great resource.
