For people who want to think for themselves
The Be Reasonable podcast is different from other 'Skeptical' podcasts, in that the hosts do not give you all the answers. It brings fascinating discussions with people who have views somewhat 'outside the mainstream', but instead of trying to prove them wrong, the hosts simply explore the beliefs as stated. They certainly ask the interviewees to explain or detail certain points, but there is no attempt either during the interview or afterwards to convice either the person involved or the listener of any particular view. The interviewee is treated with respect, and the listener's brain is also treated with respect - if you agree or disagree you have to think for yourself about why that is so. Fantastic podcast.

It may at an ear-glance appear that Marsh isn't contributing much, but this is far from the case. Just being capable of remaining quiet in the face of such...Read full review »
