SYSK was always a well balanced and apolitical show. I always enjoyed it very much. However... Recent shows clearly show political bias. Facts are either cherry picked or based on opinions expressed in other articles or documentaries. Mostly left leaning. Guys, update your writers ;-) you start to sound like another liberal echo chamber.
I really like how you guys do quick little deep dives into really interesting topics, I saw you just did an episode about Latinx which is really awesome! I’m curious if you could do more episodes on other cultures and issues like BLM, or the trouble Native Americans have with land disputes or Nigeria trying to end SARS or Uighurs or how planned parenthood works. I am assuming a large base of your audience is middle class white people, specifically men from 30s to 60s so I think you are in a great position to help educate people about some need to know topics that they may not be willing to do extensive research on because they feel like it doesn’t affect them.
Listening to you two on random topics is pretty cool. I just listened to the Electoral College episode and would love a little more information. The podcast felt biased to me yet I still don’t totally understand it all. My wish is that you would talk about the “why” it was created and the intent it has. Doesn’t it have something to do with not allowing the population densities being the only voice we have, as they are usually very singular in thought processes?Anyway thanks for your content.
If the word Latino is problematic, I’d argue that the entirety of the Spanish language is problematic to it’s very core. Make up your own new white man words to make you feel better about your history, or you could get out of the way and just let them call themselves what they want. They don’t use Latin-X, neither should you.
They are the highlight of my day! Great thing about podcasts, you can skip to the next episode. I’d rather just skip the episode rather then voluntarily listen to it and write a bad review about something... I voluntarily listened to. Smh.
I listen to this podcast almost every day on my 45 minute commute each way to & from work. Josh & Chuck’s amiable personalities and entertaining tangents make my drive much more enjoyable. Plus I learn something new each day! It’s a great podcast if you want to pull out some random fact or participate in trivia! Keep it up guys! :)
This pod cast is one of my the highlights of my day. I have adult adhd and I’m very smart. Just don’t have a lot of time to read research or just find new topics to excite my brain. The topics are always great even the sun chuck. I love the nerd that comes out in me whenever I listen. You guys are truly gonna enjoy them. I have listened to just about all them since pandemic started. Just love the show. Please don’t stop.
This podcast is incredible! Josh and Chuck are amazing hosts, their humor and accessibility make each episode a joy to listen to. I’ve learned so much every time I listen and find myself laughing out loud so often, my coworkers might think I’m a little crazy. Totally worth it.
I am relatively new to your podcasts but over these past seven months, I have been working through the canon. No morning walk (6:00 am to 7:30 am) is complete without a listen to SYSK. Appreciate your balanced approach to all topics and most of the jokes, as well as your emphasis on scientific evidence. Thanks for helping me through these last seven months. My age requires that I walk by myself but with you along each morning, I am never alone.
