Ocassionally brilliant; mostly meh and always smug
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 anti-vaxxers. That's just lazy. I have no idea what Evan is doing there. Barely knows his topics, most of his additions are just agreeing with others. He must be a brother in law. Cara is extremely talented (or just works very hard) dealing with complex topics, but her smugness and social justice spin on just about everything are extremely annoying. She should be too smart to let herself become just another NPR host. The boys are fine and Steve is a gem The noisy and some word thing they do is just dumb. Done for 2021 with this. It was such a terrific science show a few years ago, I'll check in again in 2022.Read full review »
