Always worth the listen

Every time I listen to Hidden Brain I learn something useful and applicable in some way or another. Whether learning something about how I view the world or how to talk to others with different opinions there’s always some great nugget of information in each episode. On top of that, Shankar’s (sp?) deep humanity comes through and makes each listen that much more enjoyable

Love the show

The show is enjoyable and they break down the topics well. My favorite part is the 60 second piece where Shankar & Daniel summarize the research they’ve found regarding the given topic. I don’t like that they air the same episodes over as an “encore.” I could just go listen again if I wanted. I am in the process of listening from the beginning so I can’t speak on the most recent episodes but the plenty I’ve listened to have been really interesting. I’m excited to listen to the rest!! Shankar is a great host!
