3 mins of offer advertising before the programme starts is too long. Interesting guest once I got through that. Have multiple guests might add more to discussions.

Please stop giving attention to Ibram Kendi and his bigoted and childishly simplistic ideas about solving racial disparities.

No matter the subject, you’re guaranteed to gain something from every episode - can’t recommend Intelligence Squared enough!

Great subject and the author had some great ideas. Questions could have been much more interesting and edgey. Plus the guy who does the intro over uses “fascinating” and bugs be disproportionately.

this show seems very professional and academic but while the whole time I'm listening, there are many bias about Asian countries and there are so many points are obviously lack of enough researchRead full review »

With several minutes of ads at the beginning, middle and end of each podcast, often lacklustre “debates” that fail to go beyond: “I think this”, “I disagree, it’s that”… “did we convince anyone? No?”, and most interviews being nothing beyond thinly veiled book adverts, this podcast is high on...Read full review »

This podcast widens my perspective because the topics it covers are so diverse and interesting.
RajaRoss via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/24/21
Not much information on the contents of the leaked documents but a heavy, far left diatribe on the ills of the world. More a ideologue’s rage against the rich and especially the Republican Party in the US. It’s a real turn off. Disappointed in the show for an ever increasing diet of social...Read full review »

Episode with Franzten was well timed with recent IPCC report. That said - he is a nihilist human hater - actually calling the ‘human project’ a virus, a plague on the planet etc. This sort of mindset, along with the increasing government authoritarianism in the west as a result of COVID, only...Read full review »

I used to love this podcast but even though its a new season and we’re into October, they’re still replaying debates from years ago instead of producing new ones. If other podcasts are in full swing and producing new content, why can’t intelligence squared? Also, the fact that they gave the Home...Read full review »

Global climate change is the challenge of the century. On top of all the seemingly countless societal and ethical struggles us humans find ourselves in today, we must remember the ticking time bomb that is slowly advancing. Global climate change is the subtext of our century. It frames and...Read full review »

I listened to this episode with a lot of interest. And what it revealed more than anything, is what was mentioned in another episode on race. The miseducation of the typical British person. Specifically, white male. The ignorance was astounding. In discussing meritocracy, this guy did not once,...Read full review »

Always an informative and insightful listen

A great show on human rights featuring Geoffrey Robertson but then two plugs for Amazon!?
marxonawire via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/16/21
Formerly (not too long ago in fact) this was a very high-quality debate forum. Sadly, it is now the equivalent of every other sound-stage for broadcasting unilateral viewpoints, loaded with jargon and newspeak.
AeroVox via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/11/21
Very disappointed with moderator Anne McElvoy. Lack of focus, rambling unnecessary comments.
wwwdddttt via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 04/04/21
First thing I saw was the show claiming to allow different points of view, then the first episode I saw was them saying “trump was right to be censored” I mean, it was just a statement. Not “here is why some think it was justified and others don’t” it was just an opinion that was stated and not...Read full review »

At a time when all media is selling you something it is inspiring to listen to real objective and informative debate. Entertaining and challenging cant recommend this high enough , they are must listen to podcasts especially while out walking
Solas60 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 02/05/21
Very biased debate. More of an op ed rather than discussion of varying points of view. Don’t recommend if you’re looking for a breakdown of current issues.

Ignorance Squared.

Be better if Freddy Gray dialled down all the casual reactionary, right wing stuff.

sophieandomnia via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 01/06/21
Very informative. A deep dive in (mostly) contemporary issues on Earth.
Solidifyd via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 01/05/21
The subjects and content of the discussions is usually good but listening to them is completely intolerable because of the length and frequency of the adverts. Completely spoiled.
Anewland via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/28/20
Old fashioned antagonistic debates generally featuring opinionated blowhards lacking nuance and data
whyeva via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/05/20
This show does well to represent both sides. Many reviews that say otherwise, are crazed trump cultists that either are incapable or refuse to acknowledge FACTS. They act out, and point fingers. Always projecting, throwing shamefully embarrassing tantrums of entitlement if you refuse to feed into...Read full review »

Unfortunately this podcast ia politiccally extremely biased. I expected to listen to a interesting podcast with a diversity in perspectives and was disappointed.
cweich via Apple Podcasts · Austria · 11/28/20
In the past few months this podcast has gone from fair and informative to very slanted politically. Sad.
Dirtaustin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/21/20
This is a great podcast with stimulating conversations and fantastic guests. I like the way the content is broad and touches on politics, social issues, tech, business and also culture.
Yas198 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/01/20
Isabel Wilkerson’s etymological assessment of “caste” is entirely wrong. A quick look online shows that it is, without doubt, derived from words meaning “lineage”. The word “caste” does not imply separation or exclusivity; and the episode debating Cancel Culture was terrible. Bottom of the...Read full review »

The first episode I tried was unlistenable as the host mic level was ten times louder than that of the guest and included clipping and distortion. Beyond annoying. Sound recording and mixing 101 is... levels!

The interview with Jenny Kleeman was fantastic.
Norwichfolk via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/20/20
An intellectual conversation about outrage devolved quickly into a highly ignorant conversation on basic economics.
Reed Cal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/20
I love this podcast having discovered it only recently. Well considered topics, extremely credible guests and interesting conversation. Don’t take my word for it, have a listen and decide for yourself.
lavarooms via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/10/20
This used to be a great podcast with diverse views. Now it is essentially a platform for left wing social science and politics. The BBC-Schooled interviewer never challenges anything she is told...

Recently Intelligence2 has moved from a debate format with two sides respectfully debating, to a discussion format where the participants share the same point of view. It’s too bad.
GlennWatson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/14/20
Extremely biased lefty SJW attitude to support their arguments.
Bzxy123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/20
Great podcast. Great to have something non-Corona related!

Wonderful and informative podcast! Food for mind!

If you crave more liberal, mainstream new world order drivel, just watch CNN. At least then you have sound and vision.
Edwood D. Wood III via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/20
Used to enjoy the debates with views from all sides but lately, it’s become more and more one sided with extremely leftist views mascaraing as balanced. The latest episode in particular had several speakers, mostly from Europe, criticizing the American response to the Covid pandemic and stating...Read full review »

Top notch analysis, this podcast's reflection depth is enlightening. It's of a defining/definitve quality you'll be hard-pressed to find. Thank you, the producers, for your magnificent work!Read full review »

Every episode will enlighten you, make you think, increase your understanding of the world, and shake your emotions. An absolute MUST!
hshdhrhiahd via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 03/28/20
If in doubt about the balance, just look at one side criticising it for being all about minorities& left wing while the other attacking them for supporting racists. Shows that they’re doing something right here. I’ve heard about 4 debates so far and they were very interesting& well balanced.
