Good Show With Good Reason

I think the main reason this podcast is delving into the history of vaccines is due to reddit becoming one of the primary fighters against anti-vaxx misinformation and backlash, much of which can be seen in these very reviews. Anti-vaxxers are incorrect in their beliefs, and this limited series will tell you why. It also has good shows about reddit posts, subreddits, and stories, if that’s what you’re looking for.

Not really about Reddit culture

I used to love the idea of a podcast about Reddit culture. Spending a lot of time on Reddit myself, I can think of so many stories and mysteries on Reddit that would make great podcast episodes. I loved when they investigated the man who was finding weird notes in his house, for example. Instead their episodes have gotten farther and farther away from Reddit culture until they present things that are only tentatively related at best. Now they are going on a vaccine debate bender, not even trying to tie it back to Reddit at all. If you want to make a podcast about the vaccine debate, go ahead, just don’t present it as a podcast about Reddit.
