A Great Podcast for the Aspiring Rationalist

I really enjoy this podcast. The hosts are smart and fun, and the topics are interesting. I particularly enjoy it when they respond to listener questions, which are always deep and interesting.

Great

It's a wonderful podcast with a fun group of friends using big words. I've never before wanted so much to put the letter 'a' at the end of someone's name. Instead of that, I give the Bayesian Conspiracy an A+. Keep it up!
