Byte size episodes of mega intelligence

I love the digestible research, the understandable statement of issues, the rational thinking, and the humour. Varied content: the supernatural, climate science, hoaxes, alternative therapies, conspiracies - anything that’s enhanced by critical thinking and data. 10-15 minute episodes include background, latest developments and conflicting opinions. Two signs of a good podcaster: Brian is always willing to say “I don’t know” and “I was wrong.” I switched to Premium to skip the commercials and to feel I am contributing a little to making the world a more rational place.

Joe Rogan

After listening to him on Joe Rogan this guy sounds like he enjoys arguing with people rather than actually listening to their opinion. He comes across as just click bait type skepticism
