Customer Reviews


Imagine some middle school kids doing a podcast and making snorting sounds every few seconds, and you get a little bit of an idea of what Reality Check is like. There is some interesting content here and there, which is why I gave it two stars instead of one. But it's hard to listen to, considering how immature the speakers are. Most of the topics are soft targets that are easy to debunk and mock. And mock they do, regularly sneering at common folk for believing this stuff while the anointed like them know better. Yet all this intellectual skeptic firepower suddenly wilts when confronting liberal sacred cows like global warming. Then these podcasters suddenly metamorphisize from intense, sharp scientific inquiry into childlike trust in the propaganda and hysteria. Don't waste your time with this podcast.

Excellent Podcast!!!

I listen to a number of similar podcasts but enjoy this one because it's light and funny. They are very careful not to offend anyone but still very funny. It's important to not to be so serious all the time and have a good laugh with friends. Keep up the great work!

Needs some editing and direction

It's hard not to compare this podcast to the much better Skeptics' Guide to the Universe. However, while the SGU is typically concise and on-topic, the Reality Check tends to meander, ramble and lose focus. This becomes difficult to listen to. Some retooling would do wonders.
