One of my favorites.

I have learned so much from this podcast. I do not have a science background, so it has been powerful to learn about the skeptical approach to scientific claims. My hope is that this podcast will have a long and happy life. Good job, Grant and Clay!

Great for a new skeptic

As a young skeptic and after listening to the SGU for almost a year, I wanted another skeptical podcast to listen to and I am glad I found the Prism Podcast. I started by listening to the latest episodes, but decided to go back and restart from the beginning. Even after four years the podcasts have aged pretty well and are still entertaining. Highly recommend!
