Intelligent, thorough, and humorous!

I'm still in 2021, and I'm sad to see from these reviews that Michael leaves later on. I am very much enjoying the intelligent and also humorous coverage of each topic by both Michael and Sarah. So well done. Michael is earnest & sensitive, and is an amazingly skilled researcher. He presents his findings in a smooth and incredibly intelligent way. Sarah is so intelligent and deep. Her comments are insightful, and I admire her obviously wide reaching knowledge. Her comments are quick, on point, and her frequent humor is spot-on.

I Want to be BFF’s with Sarah and Mike!

I am ADDICTED to this intelligent and well-researched show. No matter the topic, I learn so many new things and laugh out loud every episode at Sarah’s and Mike’s witty banter. If we can’t be best friends, I’ll have to settle for being “debunkmates.” 🤣

My Blanket Fort

I love Sarah & i love her analogies & her empathy & this podcast in all its forms has sustained me through long walks, bad moods, severe depression & many conversations with my husband where i tell him AHA BUT DID YOU KNOW but i retell everything in such a poorly remembered way its as if i never even spent those enjoyable hours in your blanket fort

THANK YOU SARAH
