Thank you

In a world full of division and black and white impasses, you offer bridges and colorful 3-D glasses. The part that actually made me figure out how to write a review for a podcast was your genuine gratitude for a multitude of people, week after week. When I hear your podcast, I learn more about humanity, and every unsung hero you champion gives me more reason to look around and recognize all the miracles around me. Thank you.

Solid show

Hidden Brain chooses captivating topics and produces them with great care. This is my go-to podcast for interesting and well articulated stories about being human. Thanks Shankar and the team!

I keep listening, but am regularly disappointed.

This is a national public radio enterprise and the perspectives espoused are sometimes politically neutral and intellectually stimulating, but all too often are shamelessly politically biased and anti-intellectual. The bias is always in the same direction, reflecting a statist/progressive agenda, primarily interested in promoting groupthink, political correctness and profiling of all kinds. It’s embarrassing. You don’t have to listen to the podcasts to know what perspective the show will endorse. The show is a huge disappointment. I’m not sure why I bother to listen.
