Great

Definitely worth a listen, it seems that now that skepticism has hit some politically charged topics people don’t like to be so skeptical. The show is great, I don’t agree with everything 100% but it’s still a great show that fills my skeptical tank once per week. Even when topics that I don’t agree come up it’s fun to question myself and see why I don’t agree if I’m being skeptical or my feelings are in the way.

The best

The most even-handed, deep dive into various science articles and logical fallacies anywhere.

And fun. And interesting. And never intentionally talks above the level of the audience. I love this show.
