Good podcast that used to be great

I generally enjoy Skepticality. It's a decent podcast. However, after discovering it a couple years back, I went and listened to the back archive to "catch up" and I really really loved it... it was a bit more quirky and I loved several of the regular contributors.. but in the lst few years, several of those old regulars have stopped appearing and I really find they were my favorite part of the show.

Again, its a really good podcast, but it'st eh past catalog which gets my 5 stars.

A longtime favorite

I’ve been listening to the show almost since the beginning, early on in 2006 catching up with the back episodes from 2005. As hosts of the very first skeptical podcast, Derek and Swoopy always had something worth hearing about and interesting to learn from for skeptical n00bs like me. Recently, I’ve been re-listening from the very first episodes to the very last up until 2018. With scads of good interviews, terrific book references, and cool skeptical online tools, some still extant, I give the show five stars and four thumbs up — well, were I a bonobo!

Bad news

This podcast doesn’t know the difference between natural medicine that ha been in use for successfully and for profit scams. My Naturopath is board certified M.D. from Columbia university. My acupuncturist graduated from Harvard. This podcast is crap.
