Blows My Mind

Quite often they talk about things that are over my head but in general it's a fantastic source for recent news items and fun scientific facts. I love it and listen to this podcast all the time whilst at work.

Excellent Podcast!

You will not regret subscribing to this podcast. It's packed full of science fun and the host Steven Novella does an excellent job of organizing and producing the show. I've listened to this show since it started and have loved every episode. Aside from the entertainment quality the discussions on logic and evaluation of arguments and evidence helps listeners to develop their own ability to determine the truthfulness of pseudo scientific claims. Get this podcast!!

Complete devoid of actusly debunking,

As a general skeptic, I hoped to find a good source of facts that could be used to aid the debunking of some of the more popular and accepted myths and conspiracy theories. Instead I found nothing more than a bunch of people who laugh at those who do believe in such things without offering any facts or information explaining why these popular myths and conspiracy theories are inaccurate and unfounded. The podcast offers little more than constantly repeating the manta of, "People who believe (name your conspiracy theory) are nuts and fools, and that's all youy need to know." No meat, no facts, no arguments based in scientific evidence and, therefor, this isn't a debunking podcast at all. Very disappouinting. There are much better skeptic podcasts out there.

More subject matter, less stand up

You guys used to take this podcast seriously and present it in a concise, succinct manner. Now all you do is try to keep the comedic banter going on and on. If I want comedy, I can download Conan. Get back on track.
