Classic skeptical podcast for science lovers

I have been listening to this podcast on and off for many years. Looking back, I feel fortunate to have found it during a particularly difficult point in my life; it played a formative role in my present outlook - and, really, in the person that I have become.

I was disheartened to see a number of negative comments in the recent reviews. From the beginning - and still, this is a podcast created by (and for) people that have a genuine love and enthusiasm for science and reason.

If you find science and reason inconvenient to your ideology or political leanings - maybe you’re on the wrong side of the facts.

I can’t recommend this podcast highly enough.

Mostly good

Good content but you must understand that they are liberals first and scientists second. Everything is presented through their liberal lens.

Was great until they went far left

Listened for a while and really enjoyed their insight on science. It definitely will make you look at things different but they’ve went far left political and act like they’re social justice crusaders. Anyone want something better than this try Astronomy Cast.
