Cortex - one of my favorite podcasts

All week working, I have been listening to Cortex. It's starting to become one of my favorite podcasts.

I am really fascinated by, and interested in CGP Grey's work antics, how he works in blocks, preferring an iPad, listening to the same song over and over again and so on. I am also fascinated by his minimalism and how he tries to have as few distractions as possible doing anything. His videos on YouTube, that he is most famous for, aren't that interesting to me, but I still appreciate the work he puts into them. He also has a very popular podcast called Hello Internet but I'm not a fan of that show. I've tried listening to a few episodes but I can't get through them, they simply don't appeal to me. What I'm trying to say is that, I'm not a huge fan of his other works, but I am an incredibly big fan of how he does work and talks about it on this podcast.

Myke is a great co-host as he questions a lot of Grey's decisions and also talks about his own way of doing things. Both complement each other really well, making the show both humorous and interesting.

Having a favorite episode of a podcast is kinda weird, but one that I did enjoy extra much was episode 17 where Grey revealed how he was the first guy in London to get the (at the time) new iPad Pro, and what consequences that had.
