Customer ReviewsSee All
I greatly enjoy this podcast. I liken it to being invited to listen in on a conversation between friends concerning the application of rational thinking to a variety of interesting topics. It can meander at times, but so do conversations. BTW, welcome to the podcast Jess. I appreciate your contributions.
Unadulterated ingroup fun
If, like jagskajouska and myself, you live in the middle of nowhere but need rationalist discourse in your life, this podcast will create utility for you. Eneasz and Steven and their guests are also upbeat and interesting and generally fun to listen to as they ease you into topics you’d heard about but were too afraid to go digging around in. Also may introduce you to slatestarcodex and giving what we can and make you a generally better person. (these are all things that happened to me, at least)
Interesting and fun to listen to!
Just found this podcast a few weeks ago and I really like the various topics they touch on. I would like to consider myself a rationalist, but far from expert, and enjoy listening to their ideas and opinions! Their conversations are funny and approachable and I appreciate the links and info they provide on their website and subreddit.
