Naive User ,

Good trivia!

First of all, I’ve listened to this podcast for years. Contrary to what some reviewers would have you believe, I have heard zero change in its content and the idea that there is “bias” in the content is laughable. How is there bias in learning about coconut crabs, the phenomenon of not feeling joy, or whether or not it is safe to bathe during a thunderstorm? That there could be bias in the question whether Bugs Bunny was a hare or a rabbit sounds like some cooked up by Q-anon. I gave them only 4 stars because of the significant amount of advertising which gets old if you’re catching up on several episodes.

NOT for binging

If you are a binge podcast listener like I am, this is NOT for you. The amount of advertisements and non related content is MORE than the actual content of the episode. I gave this podcast a very good try. But I just can’t be constantly fast forwarding through ads on my commute to work.

Advertising

If you love advertisements and communism, this is the podcast for you.
