Be Reasonable is a podcast from the Merseyside Skeptics Society, with Hayley Stevens and Michael Marshall.

Each monthly interview will examine beliefs from outside of the mainstream, exploring how those views are constructed and what evidence people feel supports their case.

We believe in approaching subjects with respect and an open mind, engaging with people of differing viewpoints in an environment where debate is polite and good-natured, yet robust and intellectually rigorous.

Awesome podcast!

Right, so this is my new favourite podcast. The topics are interesting and the host is always respectful. The subjects are unpacked in a way that the listener cannot confuse what point the guest is trying to make. The podcasts give an insightful look into the minds of the guests and why they believe what they believe.

Great podcast, but aggravating

The hosts are great and doesn’t pull their punches too much and I have to commend them for seemingly unlimited patience with guests. I’d like to think I like to hear all sides of an argument, but too many of the guests don’t have anything to argue with. I can still recommend this podcast highly to anyone who can sit through the noise of people deceiving themselves into believing all sort of nutty things simply because the tone and conversations are really on level of mutual respect we should all aspire to. Personally i don’t think I could get through 30 seconds with any of then without trying to slap some sense into them.
