This is wonderful! We need all the help we can get to combat the wackos.

Skeptoid was the first podcast I discovered way back in 2007 while playing around with my new iPod. Since I never skipped an episode, not even the ones where Brian sings!

Pugs are some of the best dogs a person can ask for. In this short horrible life Pugs are sweet, friendly, have zero aggression and enjoy life. They make the world a better place .My pug breathes just fine is pampered more than most humans. Your podcast is trash you pompous clown.

I’ve been listening to Brain for a few years now and it’s always interesting how his stories unfold. It’s also a good podcast if you want to know more about American local folklore. Keep up the good work. We need more sceptical minds like yourself.

I don’t trust anything a convicted fraudster claims and nor should you. Google Brian Dunning EBay fraud and find out for yourself.

Great show. This Dude sounds just like Ed Kemper, if you know you know

The humor is light and delightful! It gives great information and is really nice to listen to in the morning!

Brian Dunning is an excellent podcast host, quite knowledgeable and witty in a sardonic way. He suffers no fools gladly. My only issue is this show so thoroughly debunks popular misconceptions and urban legends that it will ruin every fun topic like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster with logic...Read full review »

Dunning does his research with clear headed logic to find truth.
Sim Dad via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/23
I really like the episodes on less sensational topics like “surveys and polls” and “how to change a conspiracy theorist’s mind”. Big foot, chupacabra, and UFOs are fun but there are more subtile issues to direct our critical attention toward.
Jmmillett via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/12/23
Excellent, well researched podcast. Each topic is given a deep dive and the results are fascinating.
Abrasrose via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/30/23
The streaming service picks the ads! The show has no say in what the ads are. (The exception are the ones where is Brian doing the talking. Those are mostly about other things he does.)
Lord Anthony Navarre via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/19/23
I feel like this podcast sometimes picks and choses “facts” to suite its narrative. The Brazilian ufo case all he doing is reading official government reports. Muginio was confused as a space creature? Come on, the girls have no reason to make this up, the picture drawn certainly doesn’t look...Read full review »

This is my only “must listen now” podcast. Always informative and insightful and a great palliative to what pops up on most of the Web. I also appreciate the humor that is always present along with the willingness to say “We just don’t have an answer.”
Archivistdjay via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/23
Always a great show but Brian Dunning may very well be in league with the mosquitoes (as a recent episode revealed), so do be mindful of his pro-mosquito bias.
CW1525262 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/19/23
What a treat , I burned through all of them straight .
texas purple belt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/22
I find almost all of these episodes to be interesting, informative, and fun. But when Brian gets into sneering at people about preferences for organic and non-GMO foods, he really annoys me.

I always tell my college students to listen to this podcast to learn the thinking skills they need to get a degree and be a good citizen of the earth.
postmodernLorena via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/16/22
I got this podcast recommended through another and wow, honestly it blows my mind. In just a couple episodes I have learnt a wealth of information about each episodes topic that just blows my mind and completely changed my perspective. It doesn’t surprise me that I was so misinformed, as...Read full review »

If you are a true believer in the climate change religion, this will be your favorite podcast. Expect a healthy dose of far left green new deal worship
Thumper4066 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/23/22
After spending many hours being entertained, yet frustrated by the many paranormal, cryptoid, conspiracy theory podcasts I had a hard time finding any actual fact based podcasts to debunk and challenge those stories. Those stories are entertaining, but certainly after a while it can be hard to...Read full review »
SVskier via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/22
This is a pretty good, sciency oriented pod but it must be from Europe because when they talk about numbers it always seems to get bogged down in the kilograde system, which makes it very confusing and difficult for Americans who are used to measurements based on the real numbers like miles, days...Read full review »

Keeps my ears busy while building amps! Great show. Skip is knowledgeable and quite funny. What more could you want? Can’t really watch YouTube while building high voltage amp,right?

Along with The SGU, Skeptoid is the best source for unbiased, science based investigation of all manner of mysteries, folklore and historical incidents. Be skeptical!
LaughingSoHappy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/22
Skeptoid covers an interesting array of topics, many of which I would credit it for introducing me to. The host champions the scientific method and empiricism, and calls himself a skeptic. I would characterize him as a debunker instead. Mr. Dunning will (typically after an intro ad or plea for...Read full review »

Have been listening to Brian for years and years now. Really well researched articles and a fantastic advocate for the scientific method. Never afraid to correct his own work or to relate new information as it comes to hand, exactly as someone who believes in the truth should. Keep up the great...Read full review »

This is a favorite. A shorter podcast but full of excellent information. Pealing back the false information!!
Watson Suey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/04/22
I love it and think it is a very important Doc to be seen by all. If it was it might be a start to changing how the Media handles itself. I want more!
curmudgeon15 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/18/22
I just recently completed my 700th episode listen via Skeptoid Premium. This show continues to be one of the most enjoyable, and yet least time consuming, podcast experiences in my library. The social value of podcasts like this cannot be overstated in our contemporary world, where false claims...Read full review »

I’ve always enjoyed Skeptoid, but its professionalism has definitely improved recently, with less opening push to become a sponsor, better opening music and welcome, and some excellent subjects of particular relevance to the present moment. Cheers to all involved!
Mokomokosama via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/22
Brian is a great storyteller and makes learning stuff interesting!
Jimv2000 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/27/22
Couldn’t make it through one episode , found it slanted , faulty research. Had high hopes greatly disappointed.
Stickers16 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/22
I have been such a huge fan of this podcast until it was brought to my attention that Brian Dunning was convicted of fraud for cookie stuffing. It has taken the wind out of my sails & although I previously thoroughly enjoyed this podcast it will never be the same for me now & I am...Read full review »

Skeptoid provides clear, well-written investigations across topics in easily-digested (short) forms. The episodes explain how they investigated the claims, effectively “showing their work.” References and a printable version of the transcripts are available for educational use, too. And Skeptoid...Read full review »

Many more scientists commented on the bell and that it echoed like a gong. Several experiments have been done not just the one. Also we aren’t even sure what is under our lands and oceans. It’s been proven that there no lava below the uppermost layer and there’s vast hollow areas and huge oceans....Read full review »

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.
Ytpujentu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/21
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.
Makeasif via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/30/21
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!
Laurie Whitten via Apple Podcasts · France · 06/02/21
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
Episode about building the pyramids was solid. Too bad he felt the need to claim that those who think aliens built them are racist. Weak pandering.
Marc the app rating maniac via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/13/21
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.
Brlippincott via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/21
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 »
