Great for long runs

I’m marathon training and go through many episodes which helps the long runs go by faster.
Thanks for stimulating my brain while I tear up my knees!

Going downhill

I used to look forward to Hidden Brain each week, but there have been an increased number of reruns and shorter, less interesting episodes. I used to be engaged in the information, but now the science seems pedantry.

A podcast to get you thinking

I love this podcast and have listened to all of the episodes. It’s so well done and has some of the most interesting topics. Even when reading the title of a particular episode I think I might not be interested,
it always turns out that I love the topic discussion and the story told during the podcast. I highly recommend this podcast for entertainment purposes and to get yourself thinking about anything and everything!
