Great podcast! Where is Julia Galef now?

This is such a balanced, informative, interesting podcast. It seems to have been abandoned and there is no recent info on Julia Galef, almost a year now. Her YouTube videos while older are also well worth the time. Hopefully she will return on this or another medium soon.

Careful thinking and upbeat personalities

In 100% of episodes, I'm impressed and delighted by Julia's fair-minded, perceptive, skeptical, informed questions. And notably, this is true even on subjects that I disagree with her about! Furthermore, the rapport between Julia and her guests is upbeat and friendly, making it so easy and pleasant to follow along with complex conversations.

Stanford prison experiment

The critics were equally undocumented as the study. That can change significantly when the paper gives evidence rather than hearsay. It was an hour of he said verses a hypothetical they say, without appropriate citations.

Most recommended. I love this show.

I subscribe mostly to podcasts that discuss complex ideas and I repeatedly find that Julia Galef’s Rationally Speaking is my most frequently recommended podcast. No matter your background knowledge or inclinations, there is brilliant stuff going on here. I learn valuable new things and stretch out my worldview every time.

I want to like it but I can’t

Good content, poor delivery. It’s hard to listen to a podcast when I find it so hard to listen to the host...they’re just sort of annoying and they interrupt all the time! Ugh! Wish it was just the guests

Great Interviewer

Julia is hands down the most thoughtful and incisive interviewer I’ve ever heard. Essential listening.

Best interviews

JG is the best interviewer, period. Humble and generous, incisive and brilliant. Guided by a strong ethical and epistemic compass. Essential listening.

It keeps Improving with Age,

This show has gotten better every year. I do miss 2 hosts (maybe they can find a 2nd in the future?) as it allowed for more broad discussion, but Julia does an outstanding job of applying reason to all topics and does not let guests get away with claims they cannot back up with something approaching fact or at least best current knowlege or concensus thoughts. I'm 70 shows in and hope that by the time I'm all caught up I myself can think so rationally!

Epistemologically Sound; Radically Charitable

Julia is just really good at this. Check out the Tania Lombrozo episode! I could listen to it on repeat and keep getting insights each time.
