I discovered Alex O’Connor through other debate podcasts, where he is invariably effortlessly articulate and clear, and always proves to be well read and well prepared. He applies not just solid science and reason but also pragmatism, balance and empathy – a rare velvet glove in this field, as...Read full review »

Love the show. Love Alex, even as a Christian. I really appreciate his reasonableness and fairness. I hope he brings on someone to foil the latest episode on The History of Yahweh. If not, NT Wright’s “Christian Origins and the Question of God” series serves as a great foil to the Documentary...Read full review »

Proper philosopher gives Sam a proper asswhooping.

I was ready to listen to the most recent WLC episode with an open mind. After hearing the whole thing I agree with Dawkins 100%. I wish Alex would have pushed back more, especially when he tried to dodge the issue of ‘how do we know God actually commanded x’ by saying that it’s an epistemic...Read full review »

Alex O’Connor is an honest, intelligent host, and I love to hear his reasoning concerning topics in which I’m interested. However, I find fault with him using his platform to host some genuinely dishonest individuals who refuse to use logic and rationally sound arguments. For example, William...Read full review »

Show is overall great. Michael Knowles is beyond annoying. The guy has the easiest “tell.” As soon as he feels outmatched on a point, he interrupts by asking a condescending question. The Daily Wire “crew,” as it were, are the biggest bunch of fake intellectuals you’re likely to find.

Typical liberal arts atheist psychobabble
Swarmopinions via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/01/24
Thought provoking, intellectually rigorous and respectful of wide ranging views while remaining accessible to all. This is one of the best philosophy podcasts I’ve come across. Thank you, Alex!

Great podcast/podcaster. Only listened to a few up to now but quickly becoming one of my favourites.
Paddyb72 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/15/24
The only fault I can find in Alex is that he is too kind. Peter Hitchens should have been told to go f.. himself after two minutes, since it's not Alex's fault if Hitchens, a supposed intellectual, writes a book on drugs and then is exposed as not knowing anything about the topic. And I...Read full review »

I just listened to the episode with Peter Bhogassian and felt the conversation was totally led astray by the host’s insisting on arcane thought experiments.

Best podcast

Excellent podcast. Particularly the episodes with Bart Ehrman. Very insightful.

Alex has a great capacity to listen patiently and press gently to bring about very engaging conversations.

I started watching Alex on YouTube as he debunked arguments for God. I saw him go to Oxford where his views matured and became more nuanced. Years later, I am still listening to Alex and his views, such a great man and a great show.
anuvith via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/16/23
Found him on YouTube. Guys in the same genre tend to be chauvinistic and arrogant, whereas Alex is always respectful and dignified!
imytbeagnostic via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/03/23
Alex dives deep into conversation with various personalities, very interesting ones. Even if you're religious as myself, it's worth listening to this podcast. I'm always looking forward the next episode. Alex has the amazing ability to always ask the right questions with the right...Read full review »

As an atheist myself, I love to hear from atheists who are not a Reddit stereotype.
Ayo Tré via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/19/23
What a brilliant podcast to stumble upon. Conversations about anything philosophical created by a humble young soul. Joyous!

Unreal poddy
Harvey Clements via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/19/23
I can’t understand how I missed the fact that one of my all time favorite philosophy communicators had a podcast. YouTube has really been messing up the algorithm because I just recently was recommended a clip of his that made me aware of this. So excited to get started.
Steve de los Guantes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/04/23
I have been an Alex O’Connor fan ever since my deconversion. The manner that he conducts himself comes through his content. It’s not a hairbrained free form podcast. He treats guests of every faith background with incredible respect. I love the way everything is structured and held together.
rootietootiefreshandfruty via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/31/23
Excellent, fair, even-keeled discussions about religion and philosophy from interesting and insightful people
Sam Carlsen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/23
I’m a big fan of Alex, Within Reason, and his YouTube work, which is ironic since I am unapologetically a believer in God. But I love how Alex navigates conversations of consequential importance in a caring, non-divisive manner. He is respectful to all of his guests, and asks thought provoking...Read full review »

I’ve been a huge fan of Alex’s going on 5 years now. His ability to brilliantly examine philosophical, ethical, and theological topics and convey his thoughts with clarity is unmatched. My only complaint over the past few years has been not enough context! Of course I know he’s been busy, but...Read full review »

It’s amazing how he pushes back on every guest he has on the show. This is honest work.
Kungfuboi10 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/23
If you like philosophy and good conversation about religion and big ideas, this podcast is for you. Alex is genuine and cares about people.
HVAC CXer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/23
I feel like he’s a smart and genuine person
dbenkovics84 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/23
I like the dialogue with people that he disagrees in order to learn more. We need more of this in todays society.

I appreciate Alex’s ability to articulate his thoughts in such a patient and coherent way to and with fellow thinkers. There is a clarity to Alex’s way of communicating that I would love to see more of. Thanks Alex—Keep up the great work!
StormFighter007 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/22/21
I love Alex’s content on here, it’s been great listening to his chats with his friends and idols. However , his YouTube channel is also worth checking out, as he doesn’t upload anymore on here :/

What an interview and what an insightful discussion with Dr Alex Hershaft! Truly inspirational. He played so many chords in my heart. Tears welled up.
