Turned into a Political Podcast with Zero Scientific Skepticism

The ostensibly apolitical hosts of SWAK have taken this show from cheeky UK leftism to overt, radical worldwide leftism in the past few episodes. If you subscribe, expect to hear diatribes against the US and leftist political screeds wholly divorced from science or scientific skepticism.

The hosts pretend to be honest skeptics, but have zero capacity for self-skepticism of their own political views, and the topics are now dominated by politics. If you’re looking for an apolitical scientific skeptic podcast, you’re better off avoiding the utter crap this podcast has become.
