This is my favorite podcast

You have put together the best podcast for critical thinking!

QAnon Free Zone !

Thank goodness for my weekly refuge of quality science news & critical thinking! The crew makes plenty of time for exposing quackery, anti-vaccine drivel, ‘woo’ fads, with the occasional stick in the eye directed toward the always angry Trump supporting incel crowd. Ignore the angry Trump trolls here who confuse political ideology with gross incompetence.
