A bunch of idiot redditors get together

Used to listen to every show, but dropped out when they went political a couple years ago. Checked in again with a couple recent expisodes. Some tremendous stuff mixed with a lot of social justice, cheap-shot attacks, dumb segments and a lot of sanctimony. Lots of criticism of easy targets like...Read full review »

This is my favorite podcast. I learn something every time I listen. But, more importantly, I learn how to handle all the information in the world today. I am more prepared to separate the bogus from the beneficial. I learn to see the limits of my knowledge and find ways to know more.

When the team pretends to laugh at Steve’s jokes I vomit in my mouth every time,

A podcast the world needs!

or should have learned, maybe you forgot? Anyway, listen & remember, often. (And remember to support education!)

I love the show topics and discussions. I learn something every time I listen but over the past few years Cara has seemed to interject more and more of her far left views. The rest of the gang does a great job of attempting to keep the conversation going and deflecting the political bias. It’s a...Read full review »

Each week is a fun adventure in critical thinking about interesting topics with intelligent, fun, and very likable nerds.

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?
MarkChicagoIL via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/22
Listened for many years and bought the book which is still a good read. However the team choose what to be sceptical about and what to let pass (i.e political leanings and anyone who doesn’t agree with mainstream talking points lazily labelled conspiracists). True sceptics would look at all...Read full review »

The podcast is amazing, I look forward every week to hearing their insights on what is going on. If you have a problem with a woman having an opinion like a lot of reviewers on here do you might be upset when Cara speaks but if you’re not a sexist you’ll enjoy her insights.

They tell you eating bugs is good. They tell you having your job automated away is good. They tell you men can get pregnant. They tell you police are racists, out to kill unarmed black men at alarming rates. They tell you puberty blockers are reversible. They tell you white people are oppressing...Read full review »

The show has recently adopted quite a bit of critical theory, in opposition to science, which is very disappointing
mwg32 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/22
The show is great, right to the moment when cara talks and adds her far left wing version on things. Has to name drop all the important men she dated while trying to say every left sided opinion she can. The show use to shoot down the middle. But now is all about joe Rogan and left wing non...Read full review »

What was once the Skeptic’s guide to the universe (and my favorite podcast), has become the Credulous’ guide to the Universe.
AnxietyGirl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/15/22
Any “doctor” who refuses to call a woman a woman, and instead uses made up pseudoscience-babble like “person with a uterus” has absolutely zero credibility.
LondonBizOwner via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/22
SGU is an amazing podcast and every Saturday morning I eagerly await the new episode becoming availability. A lot of the negative reviews here are based on some perception that the show has become politically biased. I don’t agree at all. In today’s environment, science has been politicized. It...Read full review »

Hands down the best science podcast out there…
ste_mo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/01/22
The SGU is brilliant, Keep up the great work!!😸😸😸 also, I’ve read some reviews and lots of them are saying Cara Santa Maria’s voice is stupid and annoying , It is just her voice! Imagine said that to you! Apart from that, love the podcast, its excellent stuff
ElJ2012 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/28/22
Kudos for spreading critical thinking nad skeptism.
aninde_t via Apple Podcasts · Poland · 05/24/22
I’ve listened to this podcast from early 20s until my late 30s and I can honestly say that it has changed my life. It has shaped the way I think across all areas of my life and has genuinely made me a more interesting and thoughtful person.
zgall1 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/23/22
Highly recommend! Very informative but also interesting and easy to listen to.
Jognut via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/22/22
interesting stuff and super consistent content, always fair discussions and respectful of other peoples opinions. You get to know the rouges and feel like you’ve met them
6367utghyff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/18/22
You have put together the best podcast for critical thinking!
Cory412 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/12/22
Thank goodness for my weekly refuge of quality science news & critical thinking! The crew makes plenty of time for exposing quackery, anti-vaccine drivel, ‘woo’ fads, with the occasional stick in the eye directed toward the always angry Trump supporting incel crowd. Ignore the angry Trump...Read full review »

One of the best critical thinking science podcasts out there if not the best! Thank you guys for doing what you’re doing.
Son of Star via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 05/08/22
An iconic science focused podcast.
Gumby_kvbo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/08/22
Add this podcast to your weekly routine. They have a great group rapport and evidence based approach to understanding the world.

I don’t want to be a hater but I can’t help hating this woman.
iKenney via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/26/22
I love the live shows, but someone needs to tell Cara to stop dominating the show when they are live. She is very obnoxious.
pacamama2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/17/22
Best science podcast ever, listen now or I'm coming for you.....yeah I'm mean you! Edit: This was my favorite podcast, see above. I’m assume I’m currently experiencing confirmation bias, but the show has seemed to devolved into the CARA and steve show, but I feel like Steve only gets...Read full review »

It all began when the Instagram chick joined then. Classic genX men couldn’t but cave. Show used to be pure science. Now it’s often politics. Got really ramped up during trumps term. Hard to find an episode now that doesn’t go off on a SJW tangent somehow. Really disappointing guys. Listened for...Read full review »

Good podcast. Would prefer more info and less giggling, idle banter and self promotion. Comedians your not. There are plenty of comedy podcast. Please stick to science. Update - had to get way from this podcast for awhile. Having returned, I’m sad to say, not much has changed. Not as a knock to...Read full review »

The skeptics manage every week to be informative, engaging, funny and heartfelt, while providing a much needed empathetic approach to combatting the dangers of pseudoscience and conspiracy theories. If you only have time to listen to one podcast, please let it be this one.
mattw1901 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/17/22
To not have to cover hot button, political topics. I am swamped in my daily life by politics. I actually seek it out so this isn’t a lament. But sometimes I need to put that aside and do something else with my mind. Maybe science. Maybe I can breathe deeply from a sciency podcast. Well...Read full review »

If you are truly interested in knowing truth from fiction then this podcast is for you. It’s not that they are alway right it is that they teach you how to think critically for yourself.
sc_78 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/13/22
Very interesting and informative podcast. Thank you for producing great stuff every week.
sunita from oz via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/11/22
Listen to over privileged, spoiled brats wax authoritarian. Sorry Cara, you are not the diversity the show needs.
MKULTRA83 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/22
This show has a strong left leaning bias. The hosts seem to be oblivious of this fact.
wleung35 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/05/22
The podcast is as informative as it is fun to listen to. Thanks to their hard work, I know not everyone is lost on flat earth or make-believe wishful thinking land.
Mike's father via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/22
Heavy left wing bias in this show. They say “we’re not partisan”, then say that everyone MUST vote Democrat moments later! They don’t like conservatives. They believe they are the unbiased arbiters of truth. They are not.
JSC999333 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/02/22
Skeptics guide to the universe is an amazing podcast about science, fiction and witty banter. It’s good for studying, sleeping, long drives/waits. It has a funny cast old and new who are smart and talk about interesting and noteworthy topics. They also have a good community. They appeal to all...Read full review »
