Life changing

Listening to Skeptoid changed my life (for the better!) when I started listening about 10 years ago.
After a year or two of listening it had challenged and changed so many beliefs and assumptions I held onto that I started to see the whole world, and my place in it, in a different light.
And it did all this with strong evidence and strong arguments, not waffle and rhetoric and hot air.

I highly, highly recommend it to anyone and everyone on earth.

Keep up the good work, Skeptoid.

Cheers,

Jeremy.
