Ok

This podcast is hit and miss; some of the episodes, i.e. the ones with the scientists trying to find out if this stuff is real, are pretty good. Others, I find are a rather boring and repetitive, and engaging with fundamentalists is a tad alarming. But it could be worse

Great stuff

I really enjoy this show and can’t help feeling that some of those one star reviewers are rather missing the point. Alex maintains an open and enquiring mind - as we all need to do - as he digs deeply into the likes psi phenomena and conspiracy theories to represent a balanced and educated view on a wealth of often challenging topics. He questions his guests with intelligence and tenacity, demanding in depth answers, and refusing to allow “flannel” and ignorance to slip through the net unchallenged. He is entirely credible and honest, and I get great pleasure from listening to his fascinating interviews. I’m grateful to Alex for introducing me to so many interesting thinkers, and for expanding my horizons.
