As I said, Intriguingly smart and smartly intriguing

I lived in Idaho Falls during the time of this accident and was blissfully aware of the entire episode. Of course, I was a teenager and not exactly our with the latest. The entire series is wonderfully informative. Ms. Krantz has a great voice, a sense of humor even in this grim tale, and...Read full review »

The actual problem with the fossil fuel economy starts with the reliance upon extraction of a NON-RENEWABLE resource. The actual problem with the nuclear fuel economy starts with the reliance upon extraction of a resource that is INCOMPATIBLE WITH BIOLOGICAL LIFE. Not only the waste of nuclear...Read full review »

Laura does a great job with her interesting presentation of these stories

I listen to this podcast from Ecuador and I love it. It is entertaining, well researched, and objective. As an Ecologist, I wish more people would hear this program to better understand the importance and beauty of science, but also its shortcomings… There is also a nostalgic, historical touch of...Read full review »

I heard about this podcast through Laura Krantz's interview on the Conversations With Joe podcast. A few days later it came up while I was browsing podcasts. If I hadn't already heard that there was a season about nuclear technology I would've Passed it off as another crackpot...Read full review »

I’m predisposed, love the topic

Surprisingly good production. Especially enjoyed the search for Bigfoot. Nice mix of science, research and testimony. I too have a Bigfoot sighting when I was younger playing paintball in the Maryland woods. *update: I thought the nuclear episode wasn’t strange and weird enough but it’s amazing....Read full review »

Wild Thing is great. Whether diving into fairy tale or sci fi or exploring nuclear science, it has the structure of serious and well researched reporting hidden behind a sweet, friendly and fun approach to storytelling. Love listening at the gym, on my commute and Saturday mornings at home with...Read full review »

I loved the first season. Laura has a gift for telling a story, digging for facts and keeping it fun. Looking forward to season two and three!

This podcast has an interesting and fun range of topics that host Laura does an exceptional job of covering. I really like her non-biased style of investigative research and reporting mixed with the occasional “dad joke”. Dad jokes are rad jokes, right? As stated, this podcast is fun and...Read full review »

I love listening to Laura Krantz dive deep on topics she’s curious about and willing to share with us. She’s the best storyteller! And she is so well researched, doing the most interesting interviews and no interview is a waste. You almost want to go behind the scenes with each one, that’s how...Read full review »

I’ve listened to an embarrassing number of podcasts and this has been my favorite since the first season. Laura is an engaging storyteller, the production is excellent, and it’s very clear how much care and heart went into creating it. Very excited for season 3!

Great content.
ketomenopause via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/22
Such a wonderful podcast. It approaches interesting questions seriously but skeptically and without an agenda beyond learning more. I absolutely loved the first two seasons and hope a third is on the way soon!
dks2008 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/22
Such a well done and thoughtful podcast. The information is useful but also presented with a healthy sense of humor.
Luckycj7 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/21
Does a great job of having fun with the topics without being insulting to people who believe in this silliness as well as being scientific. Thanks for keeping me company on a 15hour flight to Korea and in quarantine! What’s next?
Ferris Mewler via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/12/21
Good research and input on the topics of Bigfoot and aliens. Also good sound quality. Laura is easy to listen to.

Great Podcast
Jra4776 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/12/21
This one was promising. Unless you are very young and or not not a reader it is just regurgitation and univentful. If you have never heard a paranormal podcast before it will be interesting for a couple episodes.

I don't know why some podcasts insist on ruining their great product with endless and continuous breaks for advertisement after advertisement!! I finally had to stop and write this review just becuase it became so ridiculous!!! And it's the same 4 ads over and over, episode after episode....Read full review »

I’m a scientist and I love the way Laura blends science, culture, and storytelling. Her podcast is the perfect way to wind down the day or pass time in the car because you learn something and are completely entertained at the same time. Her wit and humor is the icing on the cake. I started with...Read full review »

Just what I was looking for.
BikeIdiot via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/26/21
Season 1 was an exciting even handed exploration of science and folklore. Season 2 by Ep. 2 has already endorsed the untestable magic of god-of-the-gaps quantum physics and then throwing in sponsorship via the Wim Hof method. Pseudoscience won out on this podcast. Really undermined the...Read full review »

Engaging and compelling. An enjoyable listen.
Perkcasso via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/07/21
Really enjoying this series, especially Season 2: Space. Each episode further explores the topic and the interviews with scientists provides more in-depth knowledge in a way that engages the listener.
stephmardell via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 04/25/21
I’m only 5 episodes in, but I LOVE this podcast. As a student in my last year in college I spent spare time looking into this topic and this has rekindled my love of the topic and the application of scientific principles to such a great mystery. Thanks for this treasure!!
Blueyoung via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/20/21
My friend told me I would love Wild Thing and she was right! I’ve enjoyed it so much. This is a show for skeptics and believers!

A podcast that entices with great teasers, only to totally disappoint. Don’t waste your time
kmmccombs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/01/21
Informational without having a set position. She doesn’t go too far either way. Great questions and exploration.w

Very well done 🤔

So interesting! I fall asleep each night relistening to it, dreaming of the wild, wonderful universe
11Leonora1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/02/21
This is the smart listeners’ look at fringe topics that I’ve been searching for for a long time. Well worth listening to, and Laura’s background as a journalist really serves her well as she takes us through the reality is behind what seem like crackpot theories. Can’t wait for season 3 ......Read full review »

One of my all time favourite podcasts. Laura is such consummate profession. Perfect mix of serious and humour. Can’t wait for season 3

Laura has a way of grabbing you with her enthusiasm and keeping you with her intelligence and entertaining humor. You think all you’re doing is enjoying an entertaining podcast but you suddenly realize that she has provoked you into deep thought, taking you on an adventure.

I love Laura! She is funny, a little corny but so informative as well. I listen to a lot of podcasts and she has absolutely kept me interested with the info as well as her personality. Well done!!
SLepard via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/28/21
Season 2 Episode 7 introduced me to some mind-blowing linguistic theory. The whole show is more than worth listening to, but the aforementioned episode is especially deserving of your time. I mouthed the word ‘wow’ in public like an idiot about a dozen times during my first listen.
grahamraabe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/23/21
I first heard of this podcast while listening to Steve rinellas meat eater podcast. Since then I’ve been hooked! Definitely recommend if your interested in the subject
Disappointed guy! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/21
Great podcast. One of the few that is able to tackle subjects of the unknown with the authenticity and credibility of real journalism.
Jnewyouth via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/21
What an absolute joy of a find. Wonderful entertainment. I don’t know what I will do when it’s finished! It’s been perfect.
actorRegan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/15/21
Was surprised to listen and realize how bad a podcast can be on an interesting subject. She has zero interest in talking to decades long thought leaders on subject. Definitely NOT worth your time.
other brother darryl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/07/21
Amazingly good podcast. It combines a healthy dose of curiosity and open-mindedness to unexplained and apparently supernatural phenomena, but remains level-headed and sobering in its scientific approach and objectivity. The host, Laura Krantz, is a great storyteller with a fresh voice and style...Read full review »

This podcast is really balanced, keeps the listener engaged and is really well produced with interesting views and interviews from a variety of sources. Really enjoyed Space Invaders!

Season 1 and 2 were great. Interesting and informative without being exploitive or ridiculous.
Jim Ohio1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/21
Well- written, well-produced, and just open-minded enough without being credulous. Good podcast!
