Every episode we blast anyone who gets in our way. We bring critical thinking, skepticism, and irreverence to any topic that makes the news, makes it big, or makes us mad. It’s skeptical, it’s political and there is no welcome mat.

Best f**ing podcast ever!
Cognitive Dissonance is so spot on, so sharp and so wonderfully funny, that I don't think I can find a better podcast out there.
Tom and Cecil dish out such wickedly awesome and scathing burns to pseudoscientists and religious nuts, and I can't get enough of it!
These two gentlemen have the most contagious laughter, and their jokes makes me literally writhe and wheeze with full on lumberjack belly laughs.
They deliver much more insightful comments on society and culture than they give themselves credit for, and are far more well read than they seem to think they are.
Before I started listening to this podcast, I could not see anything funny about nutjob preachers and certain politicians, and I would turn away from anything to do with them as if I had encountered an open vial of ebola virus, but now I have found a way to laugh at them, and a way to disarm the image of them in my mind.
They are exposed, small and ridiculous, they no longer make me feel as afraid as I was before.
Cognitive Dissonance strips them of their threatening masks and show them for what they really are: megalomaniacal feces-throwing buffoons, and it feels very liberating.
The topics include all things, from nutritionist scams to vaccines and bigfoot, to UFOs homeopathy, psychics, healing and viral claims, and all of it is unapologetically bashed, punched, kicked, burned and curbstomped into oblivion, all accompanied by the hosts very colourful language and bouts of near uncontrollable laughter. ( See episode 346: "Liveshow: Trump Conference Debacle" at 1:01:35 )
Cognitive Dissonance inspires me to think more sceptically about things, and helps me learn how to spot fallacies and irrationality, in society, in myself and in others, and I am truly grateful.
In short: I freaking LOVE it!
Massive THANK YOU from Elin in Sweden
This pod gave me nightmares
At election night ‘16 I fell asleep listening to you guys. The Time difference made it so. I had the weirdest dreams that night.
I love your pod and always listens to it as it drops. Thank you and glory hole. May you have the gloriest of holes!
Kul och informerande podcast. Fantastisk kemi mellan Tom och Cecil.
