Be Reasonable is a podcast from the Merseyside Skeptics Society, with Hayley Stevens and Michael Marshall.

Each monthly interview will examine beliefs from outside of the mainstream, exploring how those views are constructed and what evidence people feel supports their case.

We believe in approaching subjects with respect and an open mind, engaging with people of differing viewpoints in an environment where debate is polite and good-natured, yet robust and intellectually rigorous.

Amazing podcast but the delay it is 2023 already

A master class

Just discovered this and it is one of my new favorites. It is a master class in how to speak with people whom you disagree, even when that person may be a complete jerk. I find myself wishing the talented host would just scream at some of his subjects, but alas, he is a better human than I am. Fascinating, sometimes deeply disturbing, and definitely educational. I wish it was produced more frequently.

Marsh, you are doing what most can’t

I think it is fantastic that you can come on and talk to people with the most grandiose if not just blatantly ridiculous ideas and yet speak to them in a calm manner with clear concise questions. No one else is doing what you’re doing, keep up the good work.
