    We’ll miss you Elan!

    Hey,
    1. It seems to me that the biggest negative impact of coffee is that after a long term consumption, if someone doesn’t drink coffee, they’ll be more tired that if they never started drinking coffee. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=asapscience+coffee
    2. Elan, you were the best! What made the trc my best skeptic podcast, was the balance of fun and information… It’s already more serious than it was. So please guys, find someone to replace Elan as light, fun and endearing as possible!

    Cheers!!
