Thank you this is amazing!! I especially love the rethinking meat episodes. Keep spreading the word. Thanks y’all :)

For obvious reasons, this subject is hugely important, not to mention heartbreaking in terms of how we treat animals. So why do the women — both interviewer and interviewee — laugh throughout that segment? Is there some weird need to lighten the mood? I know a lot about this subject but was still...Read full review »

Interviewers fall into neoliberal ideological traps and often fail to understand their guests. Basic climate podcast, check out Hot Take if you want actual climate reporting.

Byrd Pinkerton, Sigal Samuel, and Dylan Mathews are enormously talented producers and storytellers — exceptionally well researched, thoughtful, captivating, funny, and often profound. I look forward to these episodes, have learned a lot by listening, and recommend subscribing to everyone. A...Read full review »

Factory farming needs reforming but this series has chosen to separate it from the growing research on the negative effects of grains and sugar on humans in the form of obesity and diabetes that are epidemic now. I suggest a series on the ketogenic diet and also on regenerative agriculture. The...Read full review »

I have been trying to listen to season 2 episodes but both on Apple Podcast and the Future Perfect website the episodes don’t work
season 2 listener via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/20
Factory farming is a matter of workers’ rights, consumers’ safety and, of course, animal welfare. It all remains sugar-coated in this podcast, but at least the many challenges to true reform are being acknowledged. No one wants to hear that they have to really change their buying/consumption...Read full review »

One of the few podcasts that cover important things, presently relevant things, but does not get sucked into the stress of the news cycle. I really appreciate Future Perfect, especially season 3!
jtobin22 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/20
The Paradox on Our Plates ended on such a blandly positive note that I actually feel alright about my choice to keep eating meat. I try to buy “ethically raised” stuff — organic, free-range, grass-fed, etc etc — but I know that this isn’t truly possible at the price I’m paying (my brother runs a...Read full review »

What do we have to do to get mainstream media on board with opposing/exposing the meat industrial complex? Why are people so afraid to touch the topic of meat? Have loved Future Perfect in previous seasons and am excited to keep listening. Keep challenging us!
Kiely Smith via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/20
I read a book about this a number of years ago & haven’t bought Purdue since.
Ginagina Smith via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/30/20
I’m excited that this podcast is exposing all the problems caused by the meat industry that that industry has been trying to keep hidden for decades. Bold, important work being done on this podcast.
MeatlessMondays via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/17/20
It’s a breath of fresh air to see such a largely ignored topic that has such grave implications being examined and discussed. Thank you!
JJinMT via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/17/20
Season two was great. ...But please please please don’t reduce the meat conversation to: industrial meat = bad; industrial plant-based protein = good.
nervous times via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/20
That episode with Peniel Joseph was so inspiring and life-giving... Thank you!
Pang Dynasty via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/02/20
I’m new to the podcast and really loving Season 3 with the variety of guests and perspectives, and the various insights shared. The discussions are relevant to the current situation that we all are facing. I’m finding Sean Illing’s comments and questions just as interesting and intriguing as the...Read full review »

Meh
This took an odd turn this season and the episodes doubled in length.
SaveUsBobMueller via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/20/20
Wow, I’m absolutely enjoying the new direction that Future Perfect took. This time, willing to explore deep philosophical questions and having a kind and smart discourse each episode. Honestly, my favorite podcast this year, it really went from being interesting to amazingly engaging. I leave...Read full review »

Look at the presenters face...I’ll say no more
Random Add via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/29/20
At around 11:20 there is a glitch in the episode “Your PTA va equality” where it skips a big chunk, at least that’s how it is on my end and I’ve checked in 3 or 4 times! I’m super interested in the topic please fix.
Momita via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/20/20
This podcast used to be about how to most effectively improve the world. But in 2020 it changed directions. It stopped discussing evidence-based methods for improvement and turned to so-called spiritual figures. How is this the same podcast? That seems like a big enough change to merit a...Read full review »
Byrd Nick via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/08/20
The first episode of the new season was a bit disappointing. I don’t think that Valerie Brown answered most of Sigal’s questions and so much of interview was hoisted by Sigal’s own insight, interpretation, etc. She could’ve done the thing by herself. I hope things get better. I’m a such an avid...Read full review »

All based on emotion, come on now
bangarang_ben via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/26/19
I am so blown away by what I feel I need to catch up on in regard to the underlying history of how our country, and others operate. This podcast also inadvertently explains the dynamics of our current political predicament. Thank you!
BlueBottleGirl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/19
Smart and phenomenally relevant.
cantstandstill218 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/08/19
Wow this is so interesting
shehdujfjf via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/23/19
I love the discussion here, and the production value is really strong too. It never feels like a big lift, but when I am done, I feel like I have gotten a little bit smarter every time. Strong rec from me.
Scott Potashman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/19
Listen now and you’ll not regret it
GrecianG via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/19
I love thinking about ideas like this, and I don’t hear them anywhere else.
TwizzlerYum via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
Nothing based on facts. Just liberal emotion. This podcast is what’s wrong with America. Full of great ideas to go against.
Jon apuh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/19
This p-cast is incredible! Well-researched and fun to listen to. I tell all my friends about it. I love putting it in my ears.
InternGizmo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/19
Great content - awesome points at the end about our funding choices going forward! Totally agree. (Content gets 5 stars!) HOWEVER, the episode was difficult to follow and absorb due to the nearly constant giggling and what sounded like 2 ten-year-olds laughing & punching each other on a...Read full review »
Jenny, NJ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/19
This new season philanthropy was excellent, it gave me a unique perspective to think about perceived kindness and power. The utilitarian view of altruism a giving is refreshing, and offers a very healthy view of scepticism and change.
orenbahari via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/10/19
I love this podcast and it shapes so many thoughts on the ultra-wealthy that I hadn’t thought on before. This is a must-listen for all people curious in future planning.
antipinkkitten via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/19
Great reporting and thoughtful discussion!
KelleyNaifeh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/19
I really enjoy listening to this podcast and the ideas it presents are worth considering! It does have a fairly liberal slant (in its discussion of charter schools, for example) but every production has its own biases. Still 100% a great listen!
cberiswill via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/19
Pretty garbage attempt at trying to manipulate your emotions instead of presenting facts, to make a point.
Showingsupport11111 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/19
Future Perfect really is news you can use - specifically for those who wish to make the world better. There is no better source of information that is actionable.

I am unsubscribing due to Vox’s effort to push censorship of free speech.
Homer12678 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/19
I love the direction you guys have taken it in season two. This is an angle we rarely hear explored in mainstream media and I love how you being complex academic topics into easy-to-understand and captivating stories. Job well done!
fascismisbad via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/07/19
This podcast makes me think how to be good. The people they bring on are very interesting and they make me see the world differently. Effective altruism is so interesting to me and I love hearing people’s stories behind it.
@SirGregory via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/19
I learn so much every time I listen to this podcast! every season is really different but still really good!!!!
Amwess via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/02/19
I’d never considered the relationship between philanthropy and democracy!
Buhohivou via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/02/19
Wow
wow! So informative
ruxpendp via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/01/19
Literally everything about this podcast is right up my ally. It's smart, witty, and Dylan's delivery is on point. I also love the little "skits" that they do. highly recommend.Read full review »
