Quickly one of my favorite podcasts

Chris is a really good intereviewer—he listens carefully and has a good sense of when to ask his interviewees to step back and explain something in more detail for a listener. That's especially helpful for someone (like me) without a strong science background. A lot of really different academic thought gets showcased on the podcast. I also appreciate that Chris frequently asks academics and researchers to give pedagogical examples as well.

Very helpful and insightful

I tend to lean liberal, but listening to this podcast helps me to understand where my conservative friends are coming from when we are discussing things. I really value listening to a lot of different perspectives so that I can better form my worldview, and this podcast gives me many perspectives.

Broadens Perspectives

Half Hour of Heterodoxy provides a refreshing dialogue on the ideological issues and social science research most relevant to the current political and academic climate. Chris interviews guests from wide-ranging backgrounds to provide a thoughtful examination of some of our most pressing social issues. This podcast provides a much needed step towards open and nuanced discussion of complex topics.
