Don't let my ratings fool you, this site has excellent content.

The Good:
* Free-form style comics. The artist takes the space required, and blends the panels nicely together.
* A unique perspective. He has a clear sense of wonder about the world, and has the tallent to portray this excitement in a humorous way.
* Content that matters. Many of the comics are swing from their humor to a potent relational truth.

The Bad:
* It is surprisingly non-intuitive to traverse. It isn't clear why it strays so far from the tried and true formulas.
* The art style is quite unappealing. It only works for the content that is intended to be weird/gross.
* Ad placement is excessive and distracting

The Oatmeal gets my "like", but it could be so much more.

I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.

It's so amazing that we have the opportunity to listen to so many years of history is such a fine detail. It's a marvel of the modern world. Thanks for doing this, Robin!
