Ugh. Does it have to be so biased?

I’ve always knew this show was a tad biased but it seems like it’s getting worse. The latest one about race and IQ was painfully biased and discounts the plethora of research and evidence pointing to a much different conclusion. For this I have to give it 3/5 stars since the objective episodes are fantastic. I would give them a 4 if they weren’t trying to masquerade as purely fact-based.

Love the facts

I am addicted to this show. It’s brilliant! I was thinking today if I wanted to investigate any one of the issues they talk about here, it would’ve taken me a day before I gave up lol. I’m very grateful to you guys for doing that.
Wendy your accent definitely makes the show a million times better! 😄

just awesome

Great topics, great research, great presentation. As a scientist myself I am picky about what popular science I read and listen to. I recommend this podcast to everyone who I think may take an interest.

Just one gripe -- on the organic food episode there was too much that was not assessed. I understand why based on the length of episode, but I would like to see more thurough coverage of the environmental impact part.
