Great content well researched

I have a psychology background and often find journalism on areas of psychology lacking depth or oversimplifying complex issues. Inquiring minds always covers issues really well and often explores topics that are really interesting that I had not heard about elsewhere. Great show

Best science podcast I've found

I'm not a scientist, but I am fascinated with how the world works and have looked for an entertaining podcast with meaningful content on science.

Well, I found it! The guests on the show range from astronauts to journalists to movie stars, and I've always finished each episode with more insight into science and society.

Thanks Chris and Indre for your efforts on this one - it really pays off and your interviews are fantastic.

Smug and disengaging

This podcast is a good example why science isn’t widely understood or accepted in the general community. They have in theory, interesting guests talking about interesting topics, but the end result is a smug, disengaging and self-absorbed podcast. I found the guests and presenters polarised the community as “scientists” and “everyone else” and the attitudes in this podcast are a strong example of why the general community misunderstands and mistrusts sciences.
