Great balance

You can tell these guys do their research about their topics, best balance between objective narrative and intelligent speculation and some friendly banter thrown in the mix too.

Myth-busting!

Love a good myth-buster this is a great idea and very good listen

@BeyondTheBoxSet ,

Smart and informative

Like the Snopes website in Podcast form, Rumor Flies is dedicated to fact-checking and debunking popular urban myths. The themed shows make it easy to dip in and out of the areas of your interest - I love movie rumours so I went straight for the Disney episodes. The hosts are laid back and charismatic, but clearly do the research. A really strong format.
