Disappointed

Disappointed with the quality of host and guest research. Was hoping for more thorough logical discussions, rather than regurgitated personal attacks. I chose several episodes at random because the subject matter was intriguing, but now moving on.

I WANT to like it...

He 's a nice guy and has an awesome idea for a podcast, but he seriously needs to tighten up the interviews and follow a plan for questions....it's 20 minutes of awkward personal questions (canNOT take a hint from the guest's answers that they'd prefer to get on with the show rather than talk about their hometown, and all aspects of their job and background), reminders that he's from Canada, chitchat, long rambling statements about how he got interested in the topic,more reminders that he's Canadian and how Canada is so very different and so very much not American, asking a question only to then filibuster on a tangent (usually about how he's Canadian), then finally letting the guest speak, but then interrupting him with more awkward circuitous rambles about some other tangent. Oh, and did I mention he's from Canada?

What?

O...M...G... wow ... 22:27 into the (my first) episode and it's still small talk and chit chat ... Done. Here's an idea: why not include all that at the end, after the content we're looking forward to.

Barf, couldn't stomach a listen for more than a minute.

Whatever "guest expert" they had on is so convinced that he's so special that someone is after him, that he puts an incredibly unfriendly for radio voice filter. It was terrible.

Super nice and funny guy, but his interview style could use some work. Questions kind of end awkwardly, since he has the tendancy to follow up answers with statements rather than more questions.

Terrible sound quality; poor interview skills

The guest sounded fantastic; the interviewer sounded like he was underneath a pile of blankets in the next room. Plus I heard his microwave go off at one point. A tip: no matter how fascinating the guest is, no one wants to listen to 15+ minutes of introduction. You could tell even she was getting uncomfortable with the amount of questions she was being asked about her life.

ugh, annoying

The interviewer manages to get very interesting guests, but between his peculear speach patterns, and poor audio, it is very hard to listen too. I really hope the host reads these reviews, and can take these very simple steps to improve the quality: Balance the audio level between the host and the guest, most episodes have the guest booming the the host barely audible. Try to bring the host voice more to a monotone level and pitch, as opposed to having each sentance vary several octaves. Most people hate to hear their own voice, but in this case it could help quite a bit if the Host listened to a few of his own podcasts.

Cocky, ignorantly thinks he's smart

this guy talks down to people questioning thinks he's the smartest person in the room at all times and that's what he things but most times you can hear him speak when you're speakers are on high stop making fun of other people that have an idea different than the mainstream idea your next is why don't you search for that ever elusive original thought

Great show

I really enjoy The Conspiracy Skeptic. My only complaint is that it comes out irregularly and less frequently than I would like. Stuart is probably my favorite repeat guest but almost all the topics are really good discussions.

Ummm, not the best

While the podcast was interesting and somewhat informative, he lost me when he brought in a very uneducated "expert" for the Waco episode. I can forgive the poor sound quality, the snarky attitude, the Canadian disgust and hate for America's 2nd Amendment, and the misinterpretations of our Constitution, but the quality and knowledge of some of these so called experts is infantile at best. Many follow the same arguments that the conspiracy theorists use. The "trust me, I'm an expert and I've researched this..." argument. It just didn't do it for me.

Review

After your comment that only a Christian would want to marry a 12 year old just after the first episode, I will not listen to another.
