In an era of complacent ignorance, Crazy Town provides me with a lifeline to not only keep my head up, but even get into some good trouble. Delightfully witty, shamelessly self-critical and occasionally mind-bending, the hosts choose one topic each episode and begin peeling the layers off tired...Read full review »

Hi you three goons 😉 .... loving this new season and all the research from the team that has made it possible. Love you all!! Rob and Jason you both appeared in our degrowth webinar season which we are soo grateful for. I wonder if you know about the "neo-peasant" movement that is very...Read full review »

I do recommend this podcast to everyone concerned about the future. They question the absurd world we live in—CrazyTown—which is the only sane thing to do. Keep it up, and do go beyond critique to building the foundations for a new world view —

I really enjoyed the first episode about industrialism. Since much of it was about industrial agriculture, it would’ve been nice to hear more about local escape routes in terms of creating food sovereignty and Regional Foodshed Resiliency Plans. I recently listened to Earth Talk: Agroecology:...Read full review »

Makes me feel absolutely sane. Which is really something to think about.
elakaralana via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 03/14/24
These three hosts make it seem easy to describe the insanity of the anthropocene in humorous, yet compelling and serious conversations that tackle environmental, social, ethical, economic, and political problems (to name a few) we are facing. I sometimes listen to 2-3 at a time (thanks for the...Read full review »

My wife and I love your podcast! You guys are right on with respect to the rood cause of the issues we are causing in our relationship with the planet and how our society and culture has created this human “super organism” that is out of control. You’re chemistry is excellent and makes your...Read full review »

Before I even started listening to you guys, the episode titles alone made me pretty sure I would enjoy the show. This was confirmed to be true very quickly, although as a lifelong mid valley resident, I have to say every little Corvallis reference you throw in makes it all that much better for...Read full review »
Lonely Linn County Leftist via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/23
Not just statistics and pessimistic forecasts. A podcast that goes into why things are the way they are and why it’s so hard for us humans to change how we think about the world. Not exactly a hopeful look at the future but a humane one that explains how we’re hurting ourselves even as we’re...Read full review »

I’ve always liked the show but I am really enjoying the “Phase Prophets” episodes
Jornjams via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/30/23
Rob, Jason, and Asher are in top form in Season 5 of Crazy Town. Any podcast referring to a pseudo intellectual as an anti-vampire deserves a listen.
smalldragons via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/23
As funny as many comedy podcasts, and far more interesting and realistic than any other podcast on energy and overshoot, with fantastic guests like Mary roach, my favorite science writer, Noam Chomsky, and more. Plus wide ranging topics such as psychedelics, reforming capitalism, population, the...Read full review »
energyskeptic via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/20/22
This podcast provides extremely well researched information about our world and climate change that points out the comical (albeit very depressing) truth about the crazy world we live in.
Bdixzdle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/22
After listening to almost all the shows, I think their attitude toward presenting difficult info has rubbed of on me because I’m no longer just yelling at people in social settings. Seriously though, this show is full of accurate information and is presented in a thoughtful and companionate way....Read full review »
Maybe Surely via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/15/22
They worry about the same things I do just funnier and well informed. One of my favourite podcasts. Please keep going.

I would like to refer you to Braiding Sweetgrass and the Indigenous narrative of reciprocity, relationships and giving back. If there is one narrative that is the opposite of neoliberalism it is that.
MJMJMJMJM12345 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/24/22
With crazy town I feel less alone in watching the collapse rumble around me. These guys look at the roots of our integrated systems of energy politics economics ecology and denial in ways that are profound but bouncing on their snark and smart conversations. One of the only podcasts for which I...Read full review »

I love being a citizen of crazy town! well, crazy to say that ...
huszbusz via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 12/16/21
I enjoy the fact that through a healthy injection of scatalogical humor and unrelated pop culture references, Rob, Asher, and Jason make the myriad existential crises we face entertaining. Keep up the good work.
PLMJ62 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/15/21
I like the information, and the analysis — and they've gotten better over time (their old intro and out-tro recordings were a little cheesy, though I really miss the bizarre photo of the house damaged by a storm that's missing half of the *first* story with the *second* story intact,...Read full review »
dce44 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/21
Crazy Town is *the* podcast for our times - imparting clear insights and knowledge with a sprinkling of genuinely funny banter - not too heavy, not too frivolous, these guys have nailed it
TatakaZLK via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 08/01/21
Thanks to Rob, Asher and Jason for putting together thoughtful, easy-to-relate to content about the looming existential threat that almost everyone manages to compeltely ignore. We (two adults, and kids 13, 6 nd 6) all enjoy the episodes--amazing! The synthesis across disciplines is welcome, as...Read full review »
Carla in NC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/21
It’s not easy to talk about climate change in a way that’s entertaining without diminishing the seriousness of the subject. These guys don’t sugar-coat the situation we’re facing, but somehow this podcast leaves you feeling well-informed and resolute instead of doomed and hopeless.
Jared del Barco via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/27/21
The only things keeping me going these days are new episodes of Crazy Town and The Handmaid’s Tale. Both offer a sobering view of our future if we don’t collectively get our act together... and some good old fashioned entertainment. I’m grateful for the hosts’ tell-it-like-it-is style (with a...Read full review »
susanimalll via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/21
In the recent episode they were critical of leftist elites paying too much attention to identity politics, which they do not define, rather than issues that affect more people. BUT, if they are talking about race and ethnicity, the US census identifies only 60 percent of the population...Read full review »

I decided to give this podcast a go after they were given a shout out from Dave & Ol from Sustainababble.

Each time I try to listen to this, I find myself bored and slightly annoyed by 3 white men who love the sound of their own banter, yet again. As a result I can’t sink into the content.
landotter9 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/21
I listened to your podcasts for a month trying to discover why you are supported by the Post Carbon Institute. I stopped after I found your attitudes to be close to bullying and dismissive. I am working with my town to address climate change and your podcast does not advance the work. Then, I...Read full review »
RN from NH via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/21
Great podcast! I've listened eagerly to nearly every episode. I learned a ton from the overview of energy literacy in Season One. Asher, Jason and Rob artfully blend humor and serious discussion of the most pressing challenges we face as a species. For someone who easily gets overwhelmed by...Read full review »

Love your show. He’s the only honest one and we need to talk about earth in hospice. It’s not so crazy, crazytown 🌈🌎🕳
Gunstreetgirl666 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/21
Thank you for this podcast! It is the most accessible (plus funny) forum to bring the hard reality into the conversations on our compounding planetary crises.
materthetomater via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/01/21
This is just a fantastic, well-produced podcast that allows you to laugh off the darkest, most difficult subjects imaginable … turns out that at least three of the horsemen are also stand up comics. Just subscribe and put this in your weekly mix. You’ll end up smarter, better prepared and,...Read full review »
Nineblueone via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/01/20
I love the way Asher, Jason, and Rob talk about the real problems in the world and how people will consistently deny the effects and undeniable result of our society. We need more of this!!
ILuvAvocados via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/20
I have enjoyed this podcast from its first year—the hosts are knowledgeable and possess a great dynamic. Most importantly they help identify the various “delusions and denials” that surround most discussions of resource constraints and modern society’s energy predicament; moreover they do this...Read full review »

Brilliant. Ascerbic. Funny. Their black and absurdist sense of humour is just what I need in these dark times. I find I am always keenly waiting for the next episode!
Avidlostener7 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/15/20
An entertaining look at our world and how to make it better. Great in depth ideas and thinking that helped me see the world in a smarter way. It helps me appreciate what I have and how to live my life better.
Nick Bush Tex via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/19
Smart, topical discussion informed with information about staying sane in our current era. Science, politics, psychology, business, government — and a healthy amount of irreverent humor throughout. Most importantly: the hosts seem to really know their stuff from working in the trenches on these...Read full review »

Refreshing to hear honest articulation and humility on our species cultural & planetary crisis.

I have learned so much while simultaneously laughing and crying. So often I feel like I am the one who is crazy but these three confirm I'm not the crazy one, it's everyone else and their fossil fuel guzzling, climate change denying behaviors that are crazy.Read full review »

These are the environmental conversations we need to be having. A pure dose of reality.

You’ll need this podcast for a deeper understanding of the ecological crisis (told with lots of dark humour).
Kk6724 via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 05/31/19
I‘ve decided to learn more about the drastic changes people and other species are facing. I’ve listened to a couple episodes and feel more informed and encouraged to change.
ErinJB via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/29/19
I love podcasts for helping to make independent sense of what is going on in the world. This one deals with stuff that really needs to be on everyone's radar, but understandably given how heavy the subject matter is, many just prefer not to know. There's no excuse now -- Crazy Town not...Read full review »

Smart, sarcastic, funny. Want to laugh and cry at the same time. Have learned a lot and, even better, have been moved to get off my butt and get actively involved.
