Good Stuff! The one star reviews are cheap shots

An objective podcast with accessible links to check sources; Usually interesting, and informative topics.

Some of the negative reviews mention a political agenda. This is a simply a non-political show. Some of the topics viewed through a scientific or skeptical lens may be in agreement with an ideology. However, the podcast is only promoting a way to look at quality evidence and draw the most reasonable conclusion as a result of that evidence.

Dunning bends over backwards to clarify his conclusions and the reasoning for drawing them. THAT'S KIND OF THE POINT OF THE PODCAST.

Best yet, like a true freethinker, he self corrects, accepts valid criticism, and takes pride in doing know kind of like how science works........

Brian doing great things.

Frankly, after reading some of the strange one star reviews of this podcast from even ten years ago, i just wanted to leave a note about brian’s potential political orientation. i don’t think he expresses opinions in his podcast which really warrant associating him with one political party or view or the other. The guy just does facts, and seeks the truth, and if this makes him “libertarian” or whatever, (like this would be a bad thing) well maybe the accuser needs to reevaluate where he stands with his own biases and how it is that, when finding the truth, and when uncovering and examining certain social or politically charged notions or stories we like to think of as plainly and self evidently true, perhaps one is led to more libertarian-oriented ideas?

Libertarianism has a tradition of applying axiomatic truth finding (praxiology) to the social sciences and political theory. it leaves the “must feel good” out of politics and tries to discover “what is good” for human society.

So....... maybe?

It is.

Very entertaining. Informative. The Bigfoot who lives in the forest behind my house enjoys it.
