I have not missed one in years - this is the most fun and most interesting Podcast that i listen to every week - started listening in 2007 and still am enjoying it.

Superb podcast series, never less than intriguing, excellent delivery and at around 15 minutes just the right length to dip into for a quick listen but without losing the detail in the content. Keep up the good work.

Dunning comes off with the booming voice of an authority, but his ability to separate fact from scientific snowjob is weak. Case in point: He considers organic foods a "fad," despite 10-12,000 years of human farming whih was all organic. He's been led astray by the seed genomics...Read full review »

Quite the most fascinating, honest and endearing podcast available! Lots of facts, lots of positions and if ANYTHING incorrect is stated, it will be corrected! This should be essential listening - for everyone! Thank you!

Critical thinking is difficult today with so much information flying around out there. But skeptoid takes an in-depth topic, and drills it down to its key points. Very well researched and simple to follow. One of the few podcasts that strive to be accurate about pop culture fads and correct...Read full review »

Well researched and informative
AuggieDoggy87 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/21
The content and presentation is organized and clear. I enjoy the research references given by Mr. Dunning, and especially the fact that he encourages feedback/corrections, then presents them on an “updates” episode. Well done.

In all honesty I've stopped listening to your podcast. Though I've still been listen to the SGU, Michael Shermer, and even revisit sone of your past episodes. I simply don't care about every lame ghost story, crypto zoology, alien/ufo story that is obviously bogus; Every episode is...Read full review »

Brian Dunning has become my fake science guru. He's funny, he backs up everythihg he says, he uses the rules of logic and good research skills (to help the rest of use learn and improve them), and not only does he not admit his mistakes...he has whole podcasts dedicated to them! My guess...Read full review »

I love hearing about myths, urban legends, and conspiracies, but dislike being misled by false information. Skeptoid is amazing at explaining the “unexplainable” with scientific facts and logic. Each show is created with accredited sources and, most importantly, if there is ever a mistake made,...Read full review »

I was with this guy for awhile until a few episodes where his stated “proof” was based on lazy research. I’m done with this podcast and will stick with the ones that are properly researched
Jack1669 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/21
19 minute episode, 5 minutes of commercials. Trash

Skeptoid is on of my favorite podcasts. Brian and the other hosts do an excellent job of applying critical analysis to folklore (modern and past) & current events in an entertaining fashion. I urge you to support this podcast and make sure that critical thinking is stressed in your local...Read full review »
DocComet via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/21
I like this podcast, the range of subject matter it investigates is incredibly broad, and open minded in the true sense. It’s honest enough to amend any errors, is humorous, probing, and debunks a great many myths of both the modern and ancient worlds without the conclusions lessening any of the...Read full review »

I’m always happy when I see that I have a new podcast available thanks!
Sidsucks via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/12/21
This is the epitome of the type of thinking that pretends to use science to debunk all sort of things. The problem is, like most people who do this under the guise of skepticism, is he has very little knowledge, and even less understanding of what he is talking about. I openly laugh out loud at...Read full review »
The Real Zen Boy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/05/21
After listening to about a dozen episodes, I have decided to unsubscribe because the presenter’s bias is established at the outset of each episode using language that is more indicative of getting thoughts off one’s chest than objective investigation. While I most often agree with the position...Read full review »
VovveLennier via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/24/20
Just revisited his episode with Joe Rogan and Mr Dunning is condescending and self righteous. Wouldnt listen to this podcast for nothing!
904fu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/30/20
I really enjoy listening to the podcasts and bringing good skeptical views of many popular and rarely known views on paranormal, conspiracy theories, medical woo, etc. My bone of contention is the host’s, Brian Dunning, political bias on the show. From his conversations and quips, he seems to...Read full review »

This is so amazing I listen to it every day. Work like this should be encouraged and praised, the more the better!
Meh Oofy Meh via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/09/20
A show about how to understand science and/or look at the world in a broad way. Not sure it'll make a difference but it's admirableRead full review »

Listening to Skeptoid changed my life (for the better!) when I started listening about 10 years ago. After a year or two of listening it had challenged and changed so many beliefs and assumptions I held onto that I started to see the whole world, and my place in it, in a different light. And it...Read full review »

Ideas are not supported. The podcast appears to be designed to distract the world from the truth.
TruthSeeker33 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/27/20
Conspiracy theories, scams, false advertising, and anthropomorphizing spirits are not new phenomena. What is new is the reach, as we are bombarded daily with "gate du jour”. One could view science and facts as just another way of looking at things, I suppose. But why not have a standard...Read full review »

Interesting, well written, well narrated, intelligent, an exercise in logic. What more do you want? Full of good info, amaze your friends! Seriously, become a premium member, get the USB drive and never have a dull car ride.
realengineer618 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/23/20
Reading all these reviews is quite entertaining. Buncha right and left wing idiots trying to bury their political bias in 1 star reviews calling skeptoid a biased outlet. The irony is overwhelming
AtraisMachina29 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/23/20
I’ve been listening to Skeptoid for a year or so now and I so appreciate the information presented in the quick easy to understand episodes. Brian and the team always answer my questions (and questions I didn’t know I had) with clear, concise explanations. I love that his answers are always fair...Read full review »
Viva La Vodka via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/20/20
This is a great sounding podcast that has matured into an easy-to-recommend podcast. Many of the debunked phenomena are outside my culture but it’s always interesting to see how myths from around the world are explained and refuted. He’s not afraid to say “I don’t know.” And he regularly makes...Read full review »

I have been listening to this podcast for over to years and it’s gave me the skills to know most information shared is fake and tell other about how it fake thanks to this podcast
Samuel Schwartz via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/20/20
Excellent podcast. It has taught me how one should take (or not take) information that is assumed to be true.

Use to be a good podcast but as time goes on these “free” episodes just seem like a 10 minute ad for Brian’s associated programs
shitseria nation via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/30/20
There are many podcasts that do the same thing better. I feel like this guy is kind of trying to be edgy but he comes across as a little bit cracked.
Bethedee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/20
In days when conspiracies are being flogged at all levels of society, we need to hear the truth, however painful to our preconceived ideas. Skeptoid podcasts are short and give you a great overview of legends and stories old and new. The web site has excellent references if you want to learn...Read full review »

Brian, thank you for your research and presentation! Very well put together! I’ve enjoyed each episode!
Pat Ira Neff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/19/20
I am an archaeologist-turned-geologist and, boy, do I come across pushers/believers of pseudoscience and woo-woo on a DAILY basis!!! Skeptoid is my first go-to for quick debunks and recommendation for people ‘on-the-fence,’ in these situations. Brian keeps it short, sweet, thorough and also...Read full review »
Weirdtalesaddict666 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/19/20
This used to be a good high-quality podcast to go to to get the truth on things it is now turned into a liberal right bashing garbage cast. This is a shame. Don’t waist your time.
Itunesaccount56 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/04/20
Lost a star based on additional political bias. This podcast is hit or miss. On basic subjects, it is great. If he is advocating for one of his sacred cows he does not use reason or proper skeptical techniques. The Soros, electric car, and wind farm episodes were particularly terrible.

Nimbocrux via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/08/20
The fantastic irony of this podcast is that the host labels anything outside mainstream scientific conventional wisdom a “pseudo-field.” Well, guess what this podcast is? A big ol’ heaping of pseudojournalism, psuedoscholarship, and 200 percent snake-oil salesmanship. Don’t take my word for it:...Read full review »
MattZip via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/02/20
Brian does the world a huge service in teaching evrn just critical thinking and if you must, use it the scientific method go debunk ridiculous things. Big claims require equally big evidence. Oh, I had Bigfoot for dinner last night....tasted just like chicken.
