Amazing podcast that gives you interesting information to think about and all in a bite-sized and easy to listen to podcast. I look forward to listening to every episode each week. Thank you for making this happen.

Try to be radiolab… doesn’t work Too USA centric

I’m listening to the inflation episode. They talk as if inflation is as simple as looking at one tiny thing in a very complicated system. And they act like each instance of inflation has the same cause. Oh dear. The Adam guy really makes no sense. Claudia’s version is a simplified version of...Read full review »

Time wasting sound bites diminish the experience. I came here for content and it was more glib and insufficient. Ok, I should have known by the length.

worse than re runs, this show regularly chops up old episodes, adds a few minutes of new narration and a new title and posts it as a new episode. listening to this show gave me a weird deja vu feeling until i figured out what was going on. bad faith but good topics sometimes.

I always learn a lot.

I love being able to learn something new and interesting in a short episode. Thanks!

An episode of this podcast was forced upon me by Science Vs and it was so information-less, such a bad interview, I stopped listening part way through (only making it that far in the hopes it would build on the potential intrigue it began with). I guess that’s what you get when something is...Read full review »

Love the female scientists. But, it’s really hard to listen to the exaggerated valley girl speech pattern.

Totally deservers listening

GaiaLady? Umm, excuse me?!? Your review fails to account for context and that synonyms often reflect a shared meaning that differ by degree. “I’m happy when my parents come to town; however, I’m not ecstatic they’re staying at my house.” The ability to be one (happy) but not the other...Read full review »

Regarding the episode about aging: yes, great content, but no, not great voice
frankie2266 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/15/24
Listening from France here. I appreciate the show and I always listen to every one of the episodes. But you recently started adding a LOT of ads in all of your shows and frankly it ruins all the thing. I am personally willing to pay for a version “without adds” if you offer one just to...Read full review »

The topic variety keeps me coming back and the level of detail and research to explain the unexplainable topics is truly wonderful. I always learn and am always fully engaged in the episodes. I love how they present the information and learning new and interesting information every time I listen....Read full review »

I love listening to this with my 11 year old. It gets her to ask questions and enjoy science in a fun and intriguing way. Guests are also wonderful mix of people from many fields so really rewarding for the curious mind.
Willcrimson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/04/24
The topics are well thought out and always presented in an engaging yet factual way. Great job!!!
Pitt29 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/03/24
Old episodes being replayed under a new name. They call it “revisiting”. I don’t understand the point of this as we can just replay episodes from the library… losing the professionalism, some episodes sound awful. Plus early episodes felt kinder, now a lot of them talk about horrible animal...Read full review »

I usually listen to science podcasts and so this one was recommended to me. Sounded interesting from the descriptions and titles of episodes but turned out to be just another bro podcast. You’re going to debunk “alpha male” and then in the same episode say you “don’t mind Joe Reagan”? The lack of...Read full review »

I love Vox and saw some reviews on ‘today explained’ about milk ads. For the first time I hear one on ‘unexplained’ and I thought it was a parody until I realized it wasn’t. How can I trust the reporting of a news platform when they promote a product so harmful, abusive and environmentally...Read full review »

Factual material presented in a very entertaining manner. Not the usual opinion drivel that to which most podcasts resort
Cabbage1018 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/11/24
I love this podcast.
Octophant_james via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/24
Always love the content of this show (especially bleeding edge series) and how they deliver it. Some sounds in some episodes are weird and I was thought I was high lol.
Shirls06 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/29/24
Seriously just an amazing podcast
thewknd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/29/24
I listen to a lot, and I mean, A LOT of podcasts. I have 5 favorites for different reasons and Unexplainable is in the top 5. I never fail to learn something new.
Steamboat Mary via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/26/24
I love how this podcast can illuminate and entertain with a focus on both the extraordinary (search for alien life) and the ordinary (period blood).

My former Publisher and Editorial Director at Mother Earth News, Bryan Welch, used to encourage us to think about the goal of print magazines (as opposed to newspapers and other print media) as “surprise and delight.” Before, and as, mags all around us were falling fast, this goal made so much...Read full review »

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to find this podcast but I’m so glad I did. Every episode brings up such interesting and engaging subject matter that leaves me wanting more every single time. The recent episodes on menstrual fluid and endometriosis were fantastic. I look forward to every...Read full review »

I absolutely love this podcast, it provides excellent educational topics, they speak and pronounce words phenomenally, and this podcast is very well set up. My child also loves this podcast and in my opinion, it is very family friendly,.
gslsvus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/24
Great show and the best voices in the podcast world!
QuickBen-Gandalf via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/24
This podcast is unique and clever. It is incredibly enjoyable to listen to its presentation of a broadly conceived and well-curated set of science topics
Greg Vetter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/13/24
Terrible!
R4T4R via Apple Podcasts · Russia · 03/07/24
I love this podcast! It consistently expands my brain and encourages me to think about the world (and galaxy and beyond) in new ways.
NotEzraKlein via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/24
I enjoy this show for the most part. I have to admit that the hosts give a forced nerdy vibe which feels unnecessary. I consider myself a person who loves science (I’m in medicine and research) but it’s a bit much at times. I also agree with other reviewers that brought up the use of the word...Read full review »

In this episode you featured a man who had to teach himself to cry. He said he couldn’t remember the last time he cried, let alone wept. Excuse me? These two words are synonyms. Wept is an older word that doesn’t get used much any more, but it means the same as cry. Pay no attention to web...Read full review »

I just discovered this podcast and am thrilled! The content was incredibly interesting ( UV light to kill viruses), well presented and the perfect length.
dogma704 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/24
Probably one of my favourite podcasts! The topics being discussed are so interesting and span across different fields… great presentation and sound.

Congratulations to Noam and Byrd on their Writers Guild Award nominations today! Both of those episodes were fantastic!

Cringeworthy voices trying to explain subjects beyond their intellect. Please try to delete the word like unless you plan to use it correctly.
cardii c via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/24
Seems to be on a path that panders to clicks and ads.
Informed0pinion via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/24
How many times this single ad plays IN A ROW, per episode. It doesn’t care how much money I lose in investment. It doesn’t care what I look like while I am hitting the unfollow button. Are there truly no other entities willing to advertise on your podcast?!
olemank via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/15/24
Just heard an ad break trailer for this show on the Longform podcast and the host is fully impersonating John Wilson’s narration style and cadence. Embarrassing

Well researched, written and produced, Unexplainable consistently provides interesting and thought-provoking podcasts. Thanks!

Im disappointed by the ad partners we got in the most recent episode Really? :(
calvinvaneurope via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 02/02/24
This is a great podcast, its one of my favorites. I’ve been here since episode 2 and it’s just a fantastic experience. Vox in general is just so awesome and this podcast is no exception.

They cover topics that I never would have thought about before and peak my curiosity, and I always end up learning something new. Great journalism, keep it up!
