Welcome to Pantophobia, a podcast about fear and curiosity! Are you scared? Yes? That’s great! Because right now, you’re hurtling through space on a spinning wet rock with 7 billion other people who are just as terrified as you. In Pantophobia, you’ll get to know a few of them. Even if you’ve never avoided a neighborhood bar because the wall art made your skin crawl, yelled vicious insults at a bridge, or lunged over a stack of Hawaiian dinner rolls to punch a guy in a gorilla suit (like our guests have), these stories will change the way you think about fear.

Fascinating (and Curious) Exploration of Fear!
Pantophobia is one of those rare podcasts that inspires one to think, be curious about the world and the way humans express anxiety and fear, and run frantically to hide oneself under the bed. It’s funny and thoughtful and science-minded. Stellar stuff!
As an anxious person, I enjoy how the hosts present a topic that is very near and dear to me in a way that is entertaining and digestible.
