Favorite New Podcast!

OGM I sad I just discovered this podcast, I learned so much and I'm still catching up! The woman as an awesome accent and really funny and makes learning sometimes scary things much easier (the circumspection episode was really hard to listen too came out very relieving in the end). The episodes on molly and antivaxxers are some of my favorites so far. There is way to much pseudoscience and misinformation being fed to us and it makes us live in fear of things we shouldn't. I think this podcast should be implemented into the public school curriculum, it would change future! Keep putting facts against fear and stay funny Wendy your awesome!

Lots of facts, good personality

They always provide sources and it’s very informative, and amusing to listen to. This is more aimed at being entertaining. The satire is to spice up the conclusions they take away from the episode. If it were done any other way, this would be essentially a lecture.

A few people are posting 1 star reviews because they rather stick their fingers in their ears. This podcast is not for people in denial. If you’re open minded and want to be informed, I totally recommend this podcast.

I’m not keen enough on every topic they discuss, but a lot of people posting reviews heard an episode that refuted their beliefs. Most commonly, I see a lot of anti-vaxxers complaining.

Abortion episode fail

Shame on you. Your abortion episode was not full of facts. It was a cocktail of facts and pro-abortion propaganda. I was hoping for some middle ground and honest science. But found NONE.
