For millennia, philosophers have struggled with the question: “What is the best thing in the world?”

We at Everything v Everything have taken it upon ourselves to answer this age-old riddle once and for all, using as rigorous and scientific a process as possible.

But why stop at discovering the best thing in the world? Don’t you want to know the second best thing in the world too? And the ninety-fourth best? How about the worst? And the two-hundred-and-seventy-ninth worst? Which is better: Mount Everest or patchwork quilts? Are chocolate raisins as good as the feeling you get after brushing your teeth? And who would win in a fight between the colour blue and the fifth Harry Potter book?

In time, we hope to find all these answers and more. To be sure we get it right, we will have to work our way through every single thing in the world, assembling a carefully ordered list as we go. It may take a while, but this podcast aims to document our journey to ultimate enlightenment. And hey – maybe we’ll learn a thing or two about ourselves along the way.

Join us, won’t you?
