Stuff to blow your mind

Absolutely love this show, has completely taken over my podcast listening time (20-30 hours a week) as I work through the back catalogue.

The way these guys go into deep topics but also give me cheesy B movie recommendations is my perfect mix. I also like to listen to people I may not 100% agree with ideologically and these guys give a fair crack to all different ways of thinking.

Listen and love it
