Great podcast

Great podcast, interesting and insightful.
Genuinely useful critical thinking skills in an entertaining format.
Yes, Cara’s voice and inflection can be grinding, particularly for UK listeners. BUT THAT’S JUST HER VOICE. Not a fair reason to rate this excellent podcast poorly. The equivalent would be to say ‘I don’t like that TV show because one of the presenters doesn’t look nice’, completely ignoring the intelligent points she has to make.

I would highly recommend this podcast and the associated book.

My escape to reality!

Long time listener, massive respect and thanks for all the hard work that Rogues put into this podcast - EVERY single week for umpteenth year now! Amazing.
PS. All the misogynistic saddos that harp on about Cara - just eff off already. She’s awesome.

One of a kind and a bit of a life changer

Honestly made. I look forward to this every Saturday. Likeable and funny hosts. Excellent interviews. You don’t have to be a science geek to enjoy this and to learn from it but you may end up being one after a few listens! Varied and detailed. Best podcast I’ve listened to and an exceedingly impressive record of consecutive podcasts over many years without missing a single one. If I could make every one of my family and friends listen to one thing a week it’d be this. I just hope that SGU podcast continues for many years to come. Much needed in a world of delusion, misconceptions and fairytales.
