Eye opener

I like how the podcast reveals the underlying truth behind the smoke and mirrors. It exposes the things that you are “not supposed to see” and helps us all become less naive.
The hosts do their job well. Everything is researched and backed up with references. When they speculate it is clearly indicated. They are incredibly funny with me having at least one actual laugh out loud moment in every episode. They are a bit too liberal (bordering on hippies), but it’s not an issue.
I have already recommended this podcast to all my close friends. It is quite something!!

Favourite podcast

This has quickly become my favourite podcast and I await every new episode with great anticipation. I love how well Sarah and Michael explain stuff, how they always find the best and funniest analogies and especially how empathetic they are. I feel listening to this podcast made a significant change in how I look at the world. Thank you!

Oh and I LOVE both your voices! Don't change anything!
