Favorite evening treat

I always look forward to each new episode and re-listen to the old episodes at the end of the day. A great combination of lore and logic presented by presenters who appreciate both.

Compelling

I don’t typically leave reviews but seeing as this show occasionally collects a few bad ones for nothing more than offending a believer here and there I think it deserves a 5 star review. 😛

The hosts and guests are all extremely thoughtful and this show combines two of my favorite things: skepticism and fantastic mystery. These folks bring with them a compelling toolkit you can use to challenge your own experiences with. One of the best applications of critical thinking with an entertaining and non-condescending spin.

An incredibly enjoyable and increasingly educational podcast.

When I first discovered podcasts several years ago, Monster Talk was one of the first I tried out. Most of those first podcasts (and many others since) did not hold my interest and were dropped by me in order to try out something else. Not Monster Talk though. There was never a point that I considered putting it aside for something else in the competition for my listening time. As they’ve made their way through the usual menagerie of pop-culture critters and many of the more obscure variety, the guests and subject matter only seem to get more interesting and even more relevant to concerns in the real world as they’ve begun to delve into historical human “monsters”. I love how they remain largely apolitical, but still put out content that is easily recognizable as applicable to current day world events, if you’re so inclined to notice the parallels...
