Amazing Podcast

Expertly combines huge philosophical theories with hard science and explains it in a way that anyone can understand. The production value and Mark’s personable narration are fantastic as well. So many cool ideas explored and all backed by science articles or statistics or well thought through philosophy. I listened to all the episodes in just a few days and am a huge fan now. 100% recommend this.

Crazy Sexy Cool

GT thoughtfully dishes out the enormous in small, smart and satisfying bites. As for Cosmopsychism, I can easily get behind a theory that asserts I will officially be “all that” someday. Great Job!
