Bad podcast with terrible takes

I say this as a political moderate with a PhD in psychology.

This podcast is hot garbage. It’s incredibly biased, with cherry picked science used to support narratives that are crafted to flatter the sensibilities of its audience. The audience is clearly meant to be upper middle class white women with a chip on their shoulder. To give you an example here’s a quote: “emotional labour is mostly done by women”. They unironically use phrases like “himpathy” (to disparage empathizinh with men)

Avoid if you like the actual truth or something fair and balanced.

Best podcast for challenging your own ideas

Great podcast. Really makes you evaluate your beliefs and behaviour.

Beautiful

I heard many advertisements for this podcast, but I never listened because the concept “explore the hidden forces that drive our world” sounded too vague. However, every episode I’ve listened to manages to pick stories that so perfectly embody an idea or force that shapes our reality. It’s the kind of podcast where a typical episode will change my point of view and leave me thinking about the message of the episode in many interactions I have. It’s truly great. P.S. I listen to a lot of podcasts, and this is the first one that I have come across that is hosted only by women (excluding podcasts specifically about being a woman) so that’s really nice to hear!
