Two Thumbs Up!

Great first podcast. I'll sign up if the rest are half as good. Though sound volume and quality could improve. Had some trouble hearing even with headphones. Still worth listening.

Great insight into why people just aren't smart

I haven't listened to the podcast just yet, but if it's anything like the website, the information will astound and surprise you.

Fantastic first podcast. The kinks will get worked out.

It was ironic to me that Dr. Simons mentions the poor sound quality of phones (near the 10:30 mark) as his own voice is hard to make out in comparison with Mr. McRaney's.

Audio snags notwithstanding, this is a pretty fantastic introduction to the mind of both McRaney and Simons. I've found the McRaney's writing to be a perfect pitch for folks with an academic background, but with a few fingers on the pulse of the rest of life and culture.

I'll continue reading the blog, and now I have another podcast to throw into the rotation.

I would expect people who listen to Freakonomics and RadioLab to like this podcast, for what it's worth.
