D is for Dear Hank and John

Welcome to Day 4 of the A-Z challenge. This year I am reviewing my favorite podcasts from A to Z. Day 4 is the letter D and the podcast I will be reviewing is Dear Hank and John.

Dear Hank and John is an advice podcast by the Green brothers--those famous brothers who separately do things like teach Crash Course Chemistry and write books like The Fault in Our Stars.  Once a week they get together to host this podcast about death, Mars and AFC Wimbledon. It's a comedy podcast where they answer questions from their listeners. Sometimes the advice is solid, often it is not, but it is always funny.

What's my time commitment here?
Episodes appear once a week, on Fridays, and last about an hour.

My Review:
Dear Hank and John (or as I prefer to think of it, Dear John and Hank) is fun. It's one of those podcasts that I listen to as soon as it comes available. It's like going out to lunch with your funniest friends, the smart ones that like to riff off of each other. They can also be a little awkward, which is a good thing because if you were going out to lunch with perfect people, that wouldn't be very fun. 

This is the first podcast I've reviewed where I don't always learn something. But I like their out of the box thinking, and sometimes I just need to laugh, you know? 

You can listen to it here, or wherever you listen to your podcasts. 


  1. I think my husband would get a kick out of these guys - I'll have to mention it to him. He always likes to think outside the box.

  3. Sounds fun! Thank you for sharing :)

  4. I wasn't aware of this podcast. As a librarian, I certainly know John Green. Thanks for the awareness!

  5. hmmm that's interesting. I've never really took the time to listen to a podcast, although there were some I've encountered.

  6. I used to watch their YouTube channel pretty regularly, so I should check this podcast out. Podcasts are much easier to fit into my life nowadays. So glad I found your #AtoZChallenge theme so I can find even more podcasts. I've been in a rut lately with podcasts. So yay! Thanks for putting all your listening hours together into these reviews!

  7. I don't usually listen to podcasts but now I will be checking some out You don't always need to learn sometimes you just need to feel good don't you?

  8. I've enjoyed John Green's books and I knew he did a lot of things with his brother but didn't realize they had a podcast. I'll have to check it out. A comedy podcast sounds perfect.

  9. I don't listen to podcasts. I'm not sure why. Maybe because if I find some free time I just want quiet!
