Customer Reviews

Profanity and politics drags it down

The casual profanity makes it seem more juvenile than it could be. The reflexive progressive moralizing that contaminates other Wondery podcasts makes it ultimately unlistenable.

Perfect Millennial Podcast

Myopic, misinformed host either cannot or chooses not to explore complex, nuances issues and offer judgmental opinions and simpleton POV. It’s obvious she has not been exposed to diverse world views.

Good skeptic dive out of the skeptics community

Oh man, it’s my new favorite podcast. I love the deep dive into these legends and conspiracy theories, and the honest perspective the host brings.
