Love these guys BECAUSE they’re opinionated!

And their opinion is based on solid research and (almost always) non-biased analysis. Even more beautiful, they will always admit when they’ve got it wrong. What more can anyone ask for? They’ve changed and enlarged my thinking mightily over the last 3 years.

Interesting and topical

I was loving these skeptics until they gave ‘science’ based opinions about the kavanaugh debacle. So arrogant. Still good to be reminded that it’s wise to be skeptical even with the skeptics. Worth listening to.

Entertaining introduction to science news and scientific thought

I started listening to this podcasts as an arts student in 2008. It opened my eyes to the power and importance of science and evidence-based critical thinking, so much so that I ended up doing a double degree in arts and science. Although I often don't get the hosts' science fiction references, I thoroughly enjoy and truely benefit from listening to the show each week. In a multitude of small and positive ways, this show has changed my life.
