Customer Reviews

Meatleg ,

Amazing for decades!

Long time listener Erich Meatleg here. This is the quintessential podcast. If you only listen to one podcast, this is the one you should listen to.

I would like to clear up a misconception levied by another reviewer: This podcast isn't anti-Trump, Trump is anti-science. It is obvious to anyone that a pays attention, so it seems odd to have to point this out. Trump was given an F grade by scientific American magazine before he was elected by the electoral college. That is why this science podcast awarded him skeptical jackass of the year runner up award for 2019. And if you think that CSM has made this podcast “liberal” you obviously don't remember Rebecca Watson, and the claim that CSM talks over the host is statistically, provable false.

This podcast will just keep getting better with time.
Monkeys beat birds every day!
Hybrid!

Best podcast ever

I’ve been listening since the beginning and I’ve learned so much. Cara is a fantastic addition too.

Used to be good

I used to love this podcast. Ever since they got their new host Kara Santa Morina (however you spell all that) it’s become an anti-Trump liberal California podcast. Can’t we just talk science and not politics? She’s not really the host but she might as well be. Steve barely gets a word in and she constant blares in with her long winded boring opinions.
