Fascinating and Funny: Five Stars

Do Explain is a great podcast that presents insightful and interesting conversations centered on themes of knowledge and progress. Despite the headiness of some of the philosophical topics that Christofer and his guests discuss, the podcast manages to stay light with lots of jokes and charming personalities.

Optimistic, Hilarious & Inspiring!

Awesome podcast on epistemology and rational optimism, with a good sense of humor to boot! 😆

Good topics and engaging

I loved the podcast because it’s taking Deutsch/Popper ideas to next level. Just one recommendation- would love to see you play more of a devil’s advocate. These ideas need more criticism.
