Very good podcast. Been listening for about six years now. I was already a fan of science, but this podcast taught me so much more. Especially, how to evaluate claims and weigh the merits of different sources of information. Grateful to you guys.

I bought both of their books, and have been listening for a few years now. Going through back catalogue. I love the format. Great content. I learn something new every episode. I love the science/tech news, logical fallacy review. Looking to support the crew through Patreon.

Yes
If I could only have one podcast for the rest of my life this would be it.

I’m always super excited to hear new news from the different domains of science. I love the segment with two valid and one false information. It also gives me topics for small talk at work. Super impactful!

I have been listening to this show for almost twenty years and sadly feel the quality has been steadily going down as the hosts get older. Frequently we are subjected to rants (especially from Jay) that can be boiled down to “straight white man shouts his beliefs as if they were facts.” As a...Read full review »

Reason? Facts? Verifiable and repeatable results? This show shines the light on reason and good sense based on facts. Prepare yourself to adjust your understanding as new facts and information is absorbed! Great show, I have been a regular listener for years. Breathe the fresh air of truth by...Read full review »

I used to love this show, and I have to give the SGU some credit for guiding me toward scientific skepticism. But man, this show has been circling the drain now for a few years…and it is just tired now. They’re all smart and charismatic enough, but there is a dismissiveness that really permeates...Read full review »

Science news in an extremely entertaining and nice atmosphere! One of the few shows I listen to weekly!
olaner via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 04/28/24
For a show about science communication, the easiest way to show you don’t fully research is the constant mispronunciations. I can get it in the moment, but for a researched piece it shows a lack of professionalism. Bob is the only one worth hearing from - physics and all. Evan tries to be funny...Read full review »

Sousa. Hence the “Sousa”-phone. Those are those huge, marching tuba you see in marching bands, with the bells facing forward. they actually look much larger than a regular tuba. Also MOOG is pronounced Moge, rhymes with rogue. Other than that keep up the outstanding work. Voices of reason and...Read full review »

Just as the title says. The best weekly podcast is The Skeptics Guide to the Universe. Why? There is a consistency of quality that you just don’t get, even from the next best podcast. I’ve been listening to this for over a decade and my Monday mornings would not be the same without it. There is a...Read full review »

Yes you get science and facts and clear thinking and sanity. But as you get to know them you also get a new family, with all the interplay of personalities and points of view, gentle Mickey taking and running jokes.

Been a an avid listener for a year. Today, I heard Andrea Jones Rooy—who easily equals my wife. She should be a mainstay.

I love the show! But you have to fire Bob and send him home, anywhere but Austin. Mostly cloudy on Monday for the eclipse. His record of spoiling eclipses will be unblemished if the weather forecast is accurate.

Best scientifically skeptical podcast

I really appreciate the great work this team does. i’ve been a listener for well over a decade and love the content, which is both highly educational and entertaining. Keep up the great work!

This show is the perfect antidote for all the misinformation out there today. Highly recommend!

Love this show. Great content.

There is no one with a more condescending know it all attitude than Stephen Novella. Is there anything this guy doesn’t know? He constantly interrupts and corrects the other co-hosts. What are they there for? Novella is the guy behind science based medicine who stifled the views of one of its...Read full review »

Show used to be great. Lately I notice more and more they assumptions and generalizations with no real data, they just say “most people” do this or that. Cara constantly interrupts and interjects as if she knows something that nobody else does, she is often wrong. I often fast forward through her...Read full review »

My favourite thing to listen to whilst working in the lab. This podcast has really helped me to think critically about the world around me. Couldn’t recommend more!

I learn something interesting each and every week. They do a great job breaking apart complex topics and it is clear how much they like working together.

Have been listening to you for more then 10 years now, great show, hello from Ukraine :)
tarasTD via Apple Podcasts · Ukraine · 02/17/24
I’ve been listening to all genres of podcasts for about a decade. And the one constant throughout is that this is the one podcast I make sure not to skip each week. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve turned around on an issue, not because they said so, but because of critical thinking and...Read full review »

Some discussions are really good. But, there are topics where the gang is too much uncritical. All things concerning Space exploration are presented in a quite one sited way. Cara Santa Maria is in my view the best science communicator in the group. The guys can be annoying when it comes to their...Read full review »

This podcast is always there on time since the beginning of podcast time almost. Does what it says on tin and some.
Green_Hat via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/11/24
Critical thinking and science are becoming a lost art in our society. I wish every kid in school was exposed to these concepts. It's not too late to educate yourself. This podcast is very entertaining and thought provoking. The hosts should have their own tv show on PBS as far as I'm...Read full review »

The women is so annoying and condescending, it would be a great podcast if she was replaced. 0/5 with her 5/5 without her
Foon fan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/07/24
Hands down my favorite podcast of all time. I can’t wait until a new episode is released every Saturday.
jim99765 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/24
Look forward the skeptics podcast every week. Become part of my weekend routine.
Drjosh3040 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/24
I listen to the show for half a decade and, except news, this is the podcast I listen most to. It is up to date, covers a broad topic and has a lovely team. As a non native English speaker, I love the clear language which makes it easy to understand. Truly love it. Please do it forever. Find a...Read full review »

this is an absolutely fantastic podcast. It is the one podcast. I’m looking for every week. it is not only incredibly informative, but also very fun to listen to. Altogether, I simply love this show and the people producing it.
dtr0 via Apple Podcasts · Austria · 01/31/24
I’ve been listening for years now and consider this podcast one of my absolute faves—SGU is presented by excellent science communicators who , whether they do a deep dive into a subject or give it a “once-over”, always have me thinking and questioning. And I feel like I know them, because they...Read full review »

A friend of mine told me about your podcast a couple of weeks ago and despite being kind of a podcast junkie, you guys immediately leapt to the top of my list, and I subscribed on Patreon! You’ll find me on there as Jen, accredited sorceress of ChatGPT - And I was actually pretty tickled that...Read full review »

I love the Science or Fiction segment. It is still the best science quiz on the web. I also love Cara except that she is cultivating an annoying vocal fry. I sure hope it is a phase that will go away.
Factory Rat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/24
Fantastic show, anyone with an interest in REAL and FACTUAL science, medicine and technology will love this show. Don’t leave a bad review because your personal opinions and beliefs don’t intersect with reality, people.

​skittishly insulated. will never have on any guests that disagree in the least - not meaning cranks but even any credentialed person that dares see things differently. Steve Novella holds court and the others sycophantically cheer him on. try Michael Shermer's science podcast instead - he...Read full review »

I stumbled upon The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe back in 2008, and let me tell you, it was like finding a treasure chest filled with critical thinking gems! If you're tired of pseudoscience, alien abductions, and Bigfoot sightings (spoiler: it's probably just your neighbor in a...Read full review »

My way of thinking, my science knowledge, my way of speaking and forming sentences, everything in my life is based on this podcast. Haven't missed a single weekly episode, not me, and not them! Since they began I think 20 years ago! Please keep on the good work that you do!Read full review »

an always interesting show which is erudite and comprehensible. I unreservedly recommend it to anyone with an interest in science and skepticism.

If there is ever a movie or series on the rogues lives, id really like to see Ray Romano be cast as Bob. Anyone else got casting ideas for the Skeptics Guide?
