1. For a science podcast there are a lot of unsubstantiated opinions - I started listening to this podcast at episode and really enjoyed it for the first year. However it keeps drifting further and further away from science and further and further into opinions while trying to voice those opinions as facts. I keep trying this podcast from time to time only to keep being let down. The latest episode I listen claimed walking upright was the worst method of travel. Might need to go back to basic biology and biomechanics.
2. Question re: // Pulse Ox Story - Until the new tech is perfected-can the results be tiered differently for African Americans and non-white patients? Can a study be done using the Pulse Ox followed by the more accurate blood/gas measurement (sorry I’m not a doc) and come up with a table to convert the biased Pulse Ox to a more accurate number? If South American and African nations use this same technology, maybe they may have recognized this error and adjusted the range for a healthy Pulse Ox accordingly? Just asking
3. Great show, but needs to mark reruns! - Great short pods about science! However, they used to denote when an episode was a replay and they stopped doing that. Some of us listen to so many podcasts that we don’t have time for re-listens! I’ll give back one star if you start marking episodes as “encore” again, when applicable.
4. Lost me on the condom show - The show lost me on the condom show. For the record I have a degree in biology. The show leans towards woman which is ok, but at times don't seem very inclusive on that end. Example the bladder case was more about UTI's but that is ok. I realize there are other people listening other than me. But when they have a conversation on male contraceptives and they bring up cis or trans men they lost me. That tells me that this is more a social podcast than a science and I am not listeing to it for that. I guess taking this medication might be different depending on what sex you identify with. I will tell you science like this dont care. Wish them luck.
5. Science Snippets - Love the format of this show. The variety of topics piques listeners’ curiosity and brings scientists to life. I use science podcasts in my college classes & students often say they now see scientists as “real people”. Thanks for bringing these topics to the airwaves. Regina Barber’s interviews have been especially good.
6. Far left-wing political activists posing as journalists - Some fairly interesting scientific and historical topics loaded with liberal bias and one-sided, woke ideology. It’s actually a pretty cool podcast when the discussion is not dripping with condescension and disdain towards anyone who isn’t all-in for the woken way.
Why do they really, REALLY want to force EVERYONE ELSE’S kids so bad?? There’s simply no science to suggest it’s necessary for young children. In fact, it is more likely an Ill-advised treatment for young children to receive… the REAL reason…THEY already jabbed their own kids and can’t handle the idea of it being the wrong decision. For that reason ALONE, Libs will never consider that possibility…NEVER.
7. Mostly filler, not content - I love the idea of this podcast but not the execution. Admittedly, I am several decades removed from the very-young-adult demographic the writers and hosts are aiming for (ingratiatingly, at times, it feels like to me). There's usually very little actual information after the lead-in, the robotic ads, the re-statement of topic, the banter, and the often vague, cutesy interviews. Would love to see NPR put out a bite-sized science podcast that delivered.
8. Very biased at times - I learn some interesting things from this podcast, but I feel they don’t present a balanced product. Would be so much better if the arguments for and against whatever issue they speak about would be presented. Balanced presentation of thought leaders (not just one) and studies would be so much better.
9. Cannot delete “Subscription” episodes - It’s a great podcast and I am % satisfied. BUT it’s super annoying that several episodes were “downloaded” with duplicate “Subscription” tags and I cannot delete them from my list of downloaded episodes. I am not sure it’s a bug or their way of annoying listeners to pay for subscription.
10. Thanks for the story on Chien-Shiung Wu - I loved the perspective of Jada Yuan on her grandmother and the story of how one immigrant became an intellectual giant but still saw her greatest priority as making a better life for her family and raising them to take advantage of the opportunities in her adopted country. As someone who studied theoretical physics I also appreciated that you wanted to make the magnitude of her research accessible to the audience!
Unexplainable takes listeners right up to the edge of what we know ... and then keeps right on going. This Vox podcast explores scientific mysteries, unanswered questions, and all the things we learn by diving into the unknown. New episodes every Wednesday.
Release date: 2023-03-15
1. One of my favorites - Unexplainable has been one of my favorite podcasts over the last few years. The range of topics, humorous hosts, and unanswered questions are informing, entertaining, and the perfect length for my commute, evening, or weekend downtime. The best episode ever has to be what did dinosaurs sound like? So many good ones but that one was AWESOME! Thank you for creating such amazing shows!
2. Obsessed with this pod! - I can’t stop listening to this podcast. I am obsessed! I love how they present everything so well. Instead of just spewing facts at high speed, they incorporate curious conversations and funny observations. And the editing is superbly done! With a show like this, it could easily get overwhelming but the editor paces everything and lets it breathe in just the right spots. LOVE THIS POD!
3. Please Less Background Sound - Such an interesting treasure of a podcast. But, I’m begging of the sound designer, please chill. I’m trying to hear what the guests are saying and there’s a cacophony of clicks, pulses, crunches, dings, and more in the background. I appreciate the creativity, but it’s a sensory and ADHD nightmare.
4. New to the podcast - I’m listening about a month now and give stars every time. But I’m reluctant about the stars this week as the news was devastating. But as I’m a New Yorker all my life I have to say “whad’ya gonna do”!!! stars anyway. I love (most) of your topics (except this week ). Keep up the amazing work.
5. What I didn’t know I didn’t Know - I found this podcast after an episode was aired on the Today Explained podcast channel and loved it. The subject matter, the way it was broken down for the layperson without dumbing it down, the audio mixing, everything about this podcast is enjoyable. I recommend this series and Today Explained to everyone I know.
6. Fan from the start… - This podcast is the best! I heard about it before it began to air, so I’ve been listening from the beginning. It’s fascinating, entertaining, thought-provoking, intelligent, humorous, well- written, great presentation, and relatable. I’ve learned so much, and chuckled a bunch. I love the fact that there aren’t answers for the questions they are posing….yet. It makes me want to learn more. Great job, guys. I hope you do this one for a long time to come.
7. Good but Sometimes Frustrating - I LOVE the podcast and episodes themselves, but sometimes it can be frustrating when they re-air a previous episode or share an episode from another podcast, mostly because it happens quite a lot. I think even just saying it’s a repeat or reshare in the title would be beneficial, so I don’t go in expecting one thing but getting another. Plus, I know all these episodes take time to report, so rather than trying to put out an episode every week and sometimes doing a subpar job or frequently having to rely in reusing content, I would be perfectly fine if the podcast instead was biweekly or once a month instead.
8. The a perfect podcast for curious minds who want a break from the news - I’m a podcast junkie but I really needed a break from all the news. I was looking for a well produced, storytelling podcast that focused on interesting science-based themes and not Covid, politics or war. Unexplainable is exactly what I needed! I’ve binged most of the episodes over the last few weeks while cleaning, cooking, and driving but now I’m almost out of options. Wah wah, so bummed there aren’t more. I guess I will need to go back and refresh my memory. Many thanks to the amazing folks at Unexplainable and Vox for the wonderful storytelling and the much needed breath of fresh air!
9. So glad to found this show - It’s rare for me to find content and hosts/producers that I find so interesting and not even slightly annoying. This podcast is so great in how they share complicated concepts in a simple, thought provoking and often beautifully organized audio story. I wish there was more content, look forward to exploring their website to learn more. As a person with a fairly boring job, listening to podcasts like this one give me hope and excitement and joy in life.
10. Like, What's a Yawn, Man? - I listened to one episode of this podcast and that's it for me. Not saying it's a good or bad podcast, I just don't like the model a LOT of podcasts use where one person plays dumb and the other person educates them. The "Yawn Baby Yawn" episode is a perfect example: The one host just doesn't even know what a yawn is and the other explains it to him like he's a child. "Like, why do we yawn, man?" "Well young child, here is the scientific explanation..." "Like, wow, man... yawns are, like, really interesting and stuff." I can't take it and will not listen to another episiode... man.
"Speaking of Psychology" is an audio podcast series highlighting some of the latest, most important and relevant psychological research being conducted today. Produced by the American Psychological Association, these podcasts will help listeners apply the science of psychology to their everyday lives.
Release date: 2023-03-15
1. Biased opinion is a turn off - In episode regarding hypnosis, I was surprised to hear the judgment about past life regression. Obviously the host hasn’t read Brian Weiss’ books about this subject or done any other research. This show would be a lot better if the host was objective and didn’t literally laugh at something that they didn’t believe. Incidentally, the guest did not show much of a biased. If the guest can stay neutral, the host definitely can.
2. Bad audio quality: how to learn with psychology - I love the content of Speaking of Psychology but boy the audio quality is worse. Particularly this episode “How to learn with Psychology” the guest Rgan sound is ear piercing. Do the audio/ sound editing engineers even pay attention? Maybe The Hidden Brain engineers can help you guys. Please fix it.
3. Favorite podcast so far. - I’m a psychology enthusiast for pleasure and it is great to have found a podcast that not only relates day to day life to psychological research, but it does it in a way that anyone could understand. There is a lot of information out there in all of these different social media platforms but most of it presents itself very vaguely and sometimes completely inaccurate. Great job.
4. Episode on Perfectionism in Kids Was Perfect - This episode on perfectionism in kids was a perfect reflection of what I went through as a young black girl and am still working on as an adult. I am also seeing similar patterns in my own children and they are in therapy. After I had my own breakthroughs in this area as an adult, I started including this as our main topic on the Plant Your Seeds of Transformation podcast to hear perspectives on this mostly through the eyes of other black women. Thank you for addressing this topic of toxic perfectionism (and unrealistic expectations) because it truly is important for more awareness around this to help prevent self-hatred that may end in self-harm or suicide. Unfortunately, I know this from personal experience, but fortunately, I hope my story could help save a life.
5. Interesting Thoughts - I enjoy this podcast and the topics discussed. However, the music playing while the host is speaking is very distracting and too loud to be considered background music. Also, the way the show is edited makes the conversations seem unnatural and cut kind of short/thoughts are not explained in depth at all.
6. Wonderful … - From ordinary everyday concerns to extraordinary quirks in personality, Kim Mills asks insightful questions of academics and thoughtful useful questions to all her informed guests. I try not to miss an episode and often send a relevant one to someone who will benefit particularly. Thank you for this fine, informative and useful podcast. Human nature…gotta love it!
7. Power episode - This podcast has some truly amazing content. It is a shame the episode on “Power” was so politically slanted to the extreme left. Please don’t make this another mainstream example of blatant partisanship in support of the extreme left. It will only bring your credibility into question for a large portion of your audience.
8. Best podcast I’ve ever heard. - Every week I wait for the release of the new episode. It makes my day and week. Great content a d sound quality. Duration is perfect, not too long, not too short. Guest are really interesting and knowledgeable. Host makes perfect questions & comments. Nothing negative that I can think about.
9. Unprofessional - It may be unfair to review Speaking of Psychology based on one podcast, but I find it rather unprofessional and disingenuous to use subjects such as conspiracy theories to try to score political points, especially considering how it wasn’t too long ago that conspiracies such as the government being responsible for the World Trade Center collapse, that voter ID is voter suppression, that G. W. Bush orchestrated the levies to collapse, or that China caused manipulated the weather to cause the hurricane in the first place. Conspiracies are as old as mankind and a more thoughtful analysis is warranted. Indeed, it may be argued that Carl Marx’s dialectical materialism, which resulted in the death of millions, was prefaced by a unifying conspiracy of religion and classism, leading to cultural Marxism and the social justice movement, which is largely predicated on the notion of “perceived” injustices. I don’t find any difference between the left or the right when it comes to conspiracy theories. As we have witnessed in the riots and on Jan , they all have the capacity to be dangerous.
10. Excellence! - Kim is the perfect host for this podcast as she melds rigorous knowledge of the science with a human generosity that allows guests to totally be themselves. She has fascinating guests and a topical issues to tackle in each episode. Don’t miss this if you want to hear a solid psychological foundation!
Deep in the back of your mind, you’ve always had the feeling that there’s something strange about reality. There is. Join Robert Lamb and Joe McCormick as they examine neurological quandaries, cosmic mysteries, evolutionary marvels and our transhuman future.
Release date: 2023-03-24
1. Love this Podcast! - I love how you guys cover all facets of life from the real life science of how black holes work to cryptic zoology. Recently you did a monster fact about Tyranids from the K universe and as fellow fan, I hope you keep this going! Could the K universe be a reality? As grim as that sounds, it would be neat to hear your thoughts on the sci-fi aspects K explores. Thank you for all your hard work and please keep doing the do!
2. Astrology Ads - I can’t believe it’s come to this. Literally every ad break in the episode I just listened to was a double whammy of Astrology and Influencer Drama. iHeart does not care about this show whatsoever, it’s only more ears waiting to be pushed to their more ‘on-brand’ offerings. The stratification of the podcast feed with multiple shows was confusing, but I could at least manually filter what I did and didn’t want to listen to. Robert and Joe are outstanding and I wish they could run this podcast independently — but obviously this is the real world. Alas.
3. Deep dives into great topics - I love this show! Some shows like this sound like the hosts looked up a topic on Wikipedia and are reporting back on it. I can do that myself. This podcast is in-depth, digging deep into fascinating topics. Four episodes on mirrors?! Two on tumbleweeds?! Count me in. I like how they approach each episode from a scientific, historical, sociological, and literature perspective. I just discovered it and am looking forward to listening to the back episodes.
4. The golden age of podcasts in real time. - Without a doubt the hosts are two of the most scholarly polymaths with the most beautiful American English, they enunciate and delve their words and ideas so carefully and succinctly. Often Robert is better at putting forth a premise and Joe is better at explaining it.
I hope they read this.
Listening sometimes is like going home after being caught in life’s mental storm.
Their voices are so soothing and ideas so intriguing.
5. A once very enjoyable show. - Yet another good podcast ruined by iHeart. I have had to unsubscribe to so many of my old favorites which I had listened to for years because they have been chopped up into tiny pieces and wedged between huge ads. Not only that, but the ads tend to be mainly about other iHeart podcasts that I am not interested in. Back in the days when the hosts read the ad copy, I really didn’t care what the ads were about. I listened to them because I liked their voices. Now the injected ads send me snapping around to fast forward though them even if I would like to learn about the product, because the voices, music, and sound effect seem to be tuned to reach me if I have walked away from a TV and out of the room. I listen with headsets and this ads hurt my ears. I tried to keep my phone near me so I could quickly skip the ads, but I am so tired of that now. So … so long guys and thanks for the memories.
6. Excellent podcast - This podcast has been very fun and informative for several years. I have been listening on and off since and have greatly enjoyed the varied topics that Robert and Joe (and Christian from much earlier in the show’s run) dig into. You’ll find lots of different topics to pique different tastes, and they keep the core episodes grounded with peer-reviewed research and other credible sources. Weirdhouse Cinema is a lot of fun for strange movie lovers, and the Artifact/Monstrefact mini-sodes deserve special mention as well. On a recent Monstrefact episode, Robert recently did a -minute breakdown on real-life animals that parallel the egg-spitting powers of Birdo from the Mario games. While no real-life animal is going to actually send human-sized eggs flying at plumbers, Robert’s light-hearted episode showed that the animal kingdom has some examples that are not so far off. A great show, I hope they keep doing it for as long as it pleases them.
7. Actually aggravating amount of ads - Now, I used to love this show. It was the only thing I listened to. But now there are about twelve ads at the beginning middle and end of every episode and I find that intolerable. I haven’t listened to this show for the past year and a half and have since started listening to The Exploring Series and DnD campaigns rather than an hour of ads with occasional facts.
8. Great insight into some cool topics - I really enjoy the deep dives and like that they aren’t always trying to pitch a service or product. The deep dives into somewhat inane yet interesting topics make for awesome road listening. I also get a little irritated at the constant pc culture stuff as I just want to hear this podcast and some of the advertisements are for very left leaning, racist shows. Kind of unsettling when all I want to listen to is a science podcast.
9. These guys have very subtle minds and kind hearts - I can’t gush enough about how much I love this show. Like the whole Stuff podcast family in Atlanta is a really cool crew of people. I love all their podcasts. But this one in particular gets me. I always marvel at the subtlety of thought and philosophy they convey. I still miss Julie Douglas dearly, but literally every host they have put on this show has been magic. I play this stuff at night while I sleep. Just hearing their voices is a soul warming reminder that there are good, intelligent people in the world and everything is probably going to be more beautiful than I can even imagine.
10. Commercials drive me insane - This show is amazing. I love it. I usually put it on at bedtime and doze off to it (this is a good thing imo)
I have come to a breaking point with the jarring commercials, namely ‘ibota’. Not sure i spelled that right, i hate it so much i can’t even put them in my search history.
Please please please reformat these commercials and I will gladly give a star review.
"The Joy of Why" is a Quanta Magazine podcast about curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge. The acclaimed mathematician and author Steven Strogatz interviews leading researchers about the great scientific and mathematical questions of our time.
Release date: 2023-03-22
1. High quality content in diverse field - This podcast broadens my views of scientific fields. I enjoy it very much. Now just need to catch up all the episodes before it changes its name to the current ones and also quantum magazine.!very grateful to the Simmon foundations for its continuous supports and efforts on public education of modern science.
2. One of a kind science kind podcast! - Science podcasts are a dime a dozen these days, but none of them can compete with what Strogatz delivers here. The guests so far have all been top notch, practicing scientists and mathematicians who happily dive into the details of their work. Strogatz’s intellect and versatility as a host shines throughout as he elucidates important concepts and nudges the guests into discussing the salient points of their research. Keep them coming!
نقطهی جذاب مهمونی ها، تراسه! آدم های غریبه یا آشنا وقتی وارد تراس میشن، دیگه اون مرز های همیشگی رو ندارن. خیلی ها داستان زندگی یا حرف های ذهنشون رو برات تعریف میکنن. باهات صمیمی میشن و بیپرده حرف میزنن. پادکست تراس هم از همین نقطهی جذاب شکل گرفته. یک پادکست گفتوگ...

1. بسیار عالی بود - من معمولا کامنت نمیزارم ولی گفتم طبق اثر پروانه ای شاید این کامنت باعث شاد شدن کسایی که این پادکست رو تولید کردن بشه! من الان اپیزود رو گوش دادم در کنار حس خوبی که بهم داد، فکر کنم یجورایی شنونده رو وادار میکنه که فکر کنه درمورد همه کارهای بی اهمیتی که ممکنه هر ثانیه انجامشون بدیم و به تاثیرش فکر نکنیم و به این رسیدم که چقدر آرزو و اهداف مهم زندگیم رو عقب انداختم چون میترسیدم کامنت بدی از اطرافیان بگیرم ممنونم که باعث شدین به این مسائل فکر کنم
All In The Mind is ABC RN's weekly podcast looking into the mental universe, the mind, brain and behaviour — everything from addiction to artificial intelligence.
Release date: 2023-03-11
1. Hosts are the gurus of gurus I guess - Lost all credibility when they threw Jordan Peterson under the bus. Apparently people can’t make strong claims unless they’re an “expert” guest on this podcast. In that case it’s okay. Hypocrites. Free speech on its way out. Agree with us or you’re an idiot gaslighting at its finest.
2. Brilliant - I have the type of job where I can listen while I work. I have a better understanding of the importance of compassion since I started learning more about the brain. The quality of my life has improved. I'm not saying I can fly but this show has expanded my universe a great deal. Three of my favorites podcasts respectively are the ones on fear, consciousness and caffeine. I've listened about times to the one about consciousness with nobel laureate Gerald Edelman and still don't get it. Time to read about his theory on neural Darwinism. I'm definitely inspired by your show. Great work!
3. Smart, deep, personal. - I love that they include the sometimes very personal point of view of the people, not just doctors/social workers describing the diseases. And sometimes it's about social diseases, same treatment, the people who are involved are thoughtfully and kindly included. Thank you ABC Radio International.
4. One of the Best - I have been listening to this podcast for a few years. Natasha is one of the best. She ranks with Terry Gross (Fresh Air) and Krista Tippett (speaking of faith) as one of the most thoughtful interviewers available on podcasts. As a therapist, I look forward to new insights into the human mind, and agree this is a well produced show with good writing and much humanity. I wish PBS would pick up this show to give Natasha a solid american audience. The SF Bay Area would love her as much as I do. Good work, Austrialia Broadcasting
5. Impeccable research, Creative viewpoints, Knowledgeable host - Natasha Mitchell is a vibrant, intelligent, curious and eloquent lady with a wonderfully well-rounded and entertaining show. She asks insightful questions because she is genuinely interested in each interview she does and researches thoroughly and thoughtfully (think Terry Gross, only Australian). Each topic is timely, considered from several viewpoints, and gives fascinating insight into the functions of our complex, multifaceted brains. She makes the science of the mind accessible to laypersons, yet complete enough to satisfy those of us who have studied psychology academically. The perfect podcast for anyone who likes to ponder the innerworkings of the human brain!
6. A surprizing favorite - This Aussie podcast is well done and thought through. At first I only occasionally listened to it when I had exhausted my normal favorites. But over the past few months it has really grown on me and I’ve adjusted to the Aussie personality to looking forward to each new podcast. Every week I find myself all over the internet learning more about that week’s topic. Even my non-science minded brother has started listening to it too.
Psychedelics Today is the planetary leader in psychedelic education, media, and advocacy. Covering up-to-the-minute developments and diving deep into crucial topics bridging the scientific, academic, philosophical, societal, and cultural, Psychedelics Today is leading the discussion in this rapidly evolving ecosystem.
Release date: 2023-03-21
1. Grateful for your work - How refreshing it is to learn about the legitimization of psychedelic experience in the fields of therapy, spirituality, and recreation. You are doing a great service to humanity by bringing many voices to the table and looking at ways to mainstream the conversation. I’m hooked!
2. Thank you - I am glad to hear people in the industry actually bring up the topic that hasn’t been properly addressed and that is the scientific people like to look down on and seem to have contempt for people that don’t want to go to a clinic or work with a psychiatrist to have a psychedelic experience. I think people should have both opinions.
3. Please stop interrupting the woman in your show. - I was listening to your podcast for the first time. I am an MFT trained in MDMA so I was interested in what you had to say c but could not stand listening how you interrupted Hannah often. You both control the talk and over take most of the space. Please look in to that, it’s hard to listen and it’s akso part of the work you are doing.
4. Best Psychedelic podcast on the air! - There is no doubt, no question in my mind that Psychedelics Today is the best podcast on the air that covers the topic of entheogens. Very resourceful, extremely reliable information. Education and awareness is key to change and that’s what Psychedelics Today is bringing to the table! Joe and Kyle really have improved the show over the years. It has always been a good show but with each and every passing episode it gets better and better. I do not miss an episode! I may not agree with all points of the show but who agrees % with anyone? From the dr who graduated from Harvard to the person struggling with addiction all the way to the just curious, THIS PODCAST IS FOR YOU!!!
5. Love love love - I absolutely love this podcast. I listen to it all the time in the mornings. it’s been a great tool to help guide me through my spiritual journey and I think they do a great job of choosing voices in the space that are normally brushed over. Michelle takes warming up to but she’s now my favorite on the podcast :) she has some amazing insights
6. Love but hate - Really want to love this podcast, love the content but cannot get past the girl host. She seems super nice but she is definitely not made for podcasting. Maybe a self-awareness/confidence building or speaking class would make her much easier to tolerate. Seems as if she isn’t confident in herself when speaking and says um and ya a lot. She makes this podcast a bit cringe worthy.
7. Extremely well-rounded - I love this podcast on so many levels. I especially appreciate the honesty and forthrightness of the hosts...like episode where they discuss peaks and valleys of integrating psychedelic healing, and dispel any myth that a psychedelic episode or series of episodes is any kind of magic bullet. It has helped me to consider “what will my life look like” after psychedelic therapy? “Who will I be without my current patterns?”. I am going to delve into this with my therapist and try laying out a visual of my life as I’d like to see it after some time with ketamine-assisted therapy (which I haven’t started yet except for planning stages with a therapist I just found). I have been listening to this podcast for the last few months as I try to decide if psychedelics are the right option for me. I believe that they are, but the decision does not come without nerve wracking trepidation, which throws me back into my current coping mechanisms. Then I tune back in to this podcast and get back on track. So grateful for this show.
8. Good show, but... - I was listening to the latest episode today, and a lady named Michelle on there was saying “like” about every rd word. Awful habit, the other guys were fine. It got to where I couldn’t hear anything she said other than the word “like”. “Like blah blah blah, like blah and ya know like blah blah, and like...yea like ok”. So I deleted it and moved on.
9. Such a wonderful show! - I stumbled on this podcast about a year ago when I was on a mission to learn as much as I could about psilocybin, after micro dosing changed my life. I learn so much from these people and recently I’m so happy with the addition of Michelle to the show!! I find her so joyful and relatable. I love that she giggles a lot and I feel a friendlier vibe on the show with her presence. Thanks for sharing with us guys!
10. Educational, engaging, and insightful - If you’re interested in learning about psychedelics and all their potential applications - this is a must-listen podcast for you! Joe and Kyle are excellent hosts and do a fantastic job leading conversations with thought leaders, scientists, and other experts in the psychedelics space. They dive deep into all the latest research, legislation, and discussion. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!
Brain Science is hosted by Virginia "Ginger" Campbell, MD (Podcast Hall of Fame 2022). She is an experienced physician with a passion for exploring how recent discoveries in neuroscience are revealing how our brains make us who we are. This podcast is for non-scientists, scientists, and everyone in between. It features interviews and discusses the latest books about the brain.
Release date: 2023-02-24
1. What do we actually know? - As a public school teacher, I am repeatedly told that some new technique is worthwhile because it’s consistent with how the brain works. Representatives of companies come at us with amygdala and hippocampus, prefrontal decision making and brain stem automaticity, serotonin and dopamine, EKGs and fMRI evidence. But mostly it’s hogwash. Their claims amount to saying that students will improve their time running the mile if they strengthen their quads and they have just the product. This show is a wonderfully rounded guide to brain science, appropriate for anyone who can pay attention. Dr. Campbell makes many different strands of brain science accessible, using technical vocabulary comprehensibly, which allows me to investigate fields that are relevant to me. This has helped me build immunity to the commercial phrenology that so often tries to pass itself off as indisputable. Thank you, Ginger!
2. Sometimes great, but occasionally not - Ginger is just terrific. Speaks well, seems very nice, knows her stuff and good guests. stars because some episodes are frustratingly weak and they always seem to be the ones I’m mostly interested in. The recent one on meditation drove me nuts. I figured I’d finally learn if meditation improves the biology of the brain. It was never covered. But that’s what the program was about. It was mostly about definitions and broad generalities. And the ones on mind vs brain just seem light or too philosophical for me.
3. Truly a gem of the podcasting world! - Dr. Campbell has interviews some of the greatest minds trying to understand our brains and our humanity! She builds her interviews in a carefully organized crescendo so scientists and authors bring out illuminating answers. Throughout the years, she has shared findings, trends , and challenges of neuroscience that bring insight to our thinking, doing,, and feeling. It’s knowledge everyone should have! I am a big fan and supporter, I subscribe to be able to access episodes and go back to listen again and make connections. Unlike many a podcast, her content is enduring: it will continue to be relevant if not in its accuracy, at the very least as a way to see the scientific method in action: how scientists make observations, generate hypotheses, test them and come up with theories, adjust them, discard them, and start anew.
4. Carol Travis episode. - I was happily listening to what I thought was a scientific podcast. I want my science to be about studies using the scientific method and their results. I turned it off when the talk became political. I can hear about politics everywhere. I was hoping to have some relief. I won’t be listening any more.
5. Easy to follow - I am late to the podcast community and just started dipping my toes into it last month. From sampling many different podcasts in the psychology, philosophy, and social science, I have been able to stay engaged through Ginger’s Brain Science podcasts. They are well produced. She moves through the conversations and her speaking style is easy to follow. Thank you for the good insight.
6. Wish I had known this podcast earlier - Brain science is truly fascinating. This podcast talks about the intriguing questions in the field with lots of scientific evidence, reference, insights and inspirations. I love the way Dr Campbell hosts and the questions she asks the guests. Truly thankful that I found this podcast and it has been my best companion since then.
7. Best brain podcast! - Brain Science is an excellent podcast that digs deep inside the brain with a multidisciplinary approach. Dr. Ginger Campbell’s format has really helped me learn about the brain. The episodes aren’t full of fluff and games like other podcasts about the brain/mind, yet Ginger’s style is never stodgy. She asks tough questions, presents information with consistent clarity, and wraps each episode up with key ideas (that I always find particularly helpful). This is a wonderful resource for beginners, students, and experts.
8. teacher - Of all the cognitive science podcasts I listen to/books I have listened to/read since the mid-s, this one is clearly the easisest to understand, providing valuable information and insights for ALL of us as we struggle to understand ourselves and those around us. Her summaries at the end help the listener retain the information, and her thought-provoking questions about recent studies in brain-science are questions we should ALL be thinking about as we move through our days with others. As an educator for the past years, this podcast it a MUST!
9. Definitely the best neuroscience podcast - I have been listening to many neuroscience podcasts from many creators. This is - by far - the best podcast. This podcast is super high-level-professional as well as super easy to understand. Ginger (the creator) invests so much in each episode. She has great questions and she summarizes each episode at the end. She discusses books and comps them in incredibly deep as well as practical ways. I could go on, but it’s best if you just listen. Enjoy.
10. Covers nearly all areas of Neuroscience Research - I first subscribed to this podcast when I decided to major in Neuroscience assuming it would cover the usual topics discussed in my courses. To my surprise, Campbell has also recently done podcasts covering the subject of consciousness and “the hard problem.” This “hard problem” is what made me venture into neuroscience research and knowing that consciousness is sort of taboo or placed in a secluded corner in the field it is awesome to see a podcast with distinguished guests go over the topic.

1. Amazing !!!!! - I’ve been listening to podcasts for awhile now and being an undergrad fascinated by learning and research, this is one of the few podcasts that takes a scientific approach talking about cool science stuff without being completely bland. It truly became one of my favorite podcasts right away. Also using small mini episodes in order to give background is so helpful. I truly just love this podcast.
2. You need some Katherine in your day! - Looooove this podcast- brand spankin new, only two episodes in but already I have set a calendar reminder for each week’s episode drop! Katherine is so articulate, intelligent, insightful and so genuine in making her guests feel comfortable and at ease. Listening to this podcast is like sitting in on a convo with your lab besties, great science with a sprinkling of fun and deeper life troubleshooting. This is a must-subscribe!
3. Enthusiastic and fun for scientists! - Just listened to the first episode - as someone who studies hormones in humans, it is so fun to hear two enthusiastic and warm scientists talk about research (in this case, mostly whales but also mouse research). I love that there is finally a podcast about hormones — Really cool first episode and I’m excited to continue listening!
4. Keep it up! - I am digging this new podcast! It’s definitely like no other podcast I have heard before. Talking about science, life, experiences, and everything in between makes it an easy read for anyone listening. It’s super informative while also amusing which keeps the listener around. The time flew by which I think is a great sign for a good podcast. I can’t wait for what’s to come!
5. Amazing Hosts & Unique Interviews - This show combines science with storytelling and serves it on the platter of authenticity! It highlights the incredible and important work of women in the specific field of endocrinology and how they are changing the world. The hosts are energetic and trust me you’d love everything they have to say! :) Best,
6. Informative - This podcast is a great way to learn more about science and hormones. I started listening about a week ago and just couldn’t stop. I want to hear more!! Coming from a non scientific background Katherine really helps a lot by explaining it in terms where I could understand it. Also the same though her interviewees to help me understand it as well. It’s a great listen with down to earth people where you can relate to them as well. Keep it up girls can’t wait to hear more!!!

Far-reaching conversations with a worldwide network of scientists and mathematicians, philosophers and artists developing new frameworks to explain our universe's deepest mysteries. Join host Michael Garfield at the Santa Fe Institute each week to learn about your world and the people who have dedicated their lives to exploring its emergent order: their stories, research, and insights…
Release date: 2023-03-09
1. Court of our Collective Humanity - SFI will likely be the court of advisors and prognosticators who make the continuation of humanity possible. These entertaining, sober, and thoughtful analyses of the complexities of our time are vital to understanding complex social and epidemiological phenomena ranging from origin of life algorithms to COVID- to meme warfare on social media. Anyone and everyone who feels humanity is worth saving needs to listen to, rate, and viralize this podcast in their social media and personal circles.
2. Host Needs Help - Great topics and very interesting guests, but the host gets in the way. More basic, open-ended questions would allow the guest to tell their story and let the subject matter unfold. Instead it sometimes feels like a competition for air-time as the host tries to say everything and map out his agenda for what should be a conversation.
3. Brilliant guests, engaging conversations, all-over-the-place host - My true review would be or stars, but in order to increase the informational content of my review I’m giving it stars. This is a fascinating podcast with really great guests discussing boundary-pushing ideas in the sciences. If you’re familiar with the Santa Fe Institute and what it’s all about, then you’ll find this podcast interesting. The host is highly knowledgeable, dedicated to his subject matter, and well-prepared for every interview. The issue is that he talks too much. He overwhelms guests (and listeners) with -, -, even -part questions that often make it difficult to follow a straight line through the conversation. Yes, there’s value in drawing connections between different thinkers and different disciplines, but the host does so too early and often to be useful. Guests are sometimes audibly flummoxed by long-winded questions that stray from the subject matter or try to make connections that are too tenuous or metaphorical. I think it’s important to give adequate space and care to the ideas of those working in complexity and complexity-adjacent fields. These scientists are working with subtle ideas that take time and effort to grasp. This calls for a bit more discipline and care in structuring and conducting their interviews. All of that said, I’m a regular listener to this podcast, and it often generates moments of real clarity and insight. It’s a valuable addition to the intellectual environment and I hope it keeps going.
4. Multi-dimensional Complexity Drivers In Life.. - Revealed, reviewed, reapplied, reconsidered in this brilliant podcast. Looking forward to the new political economy & equality focused examinations & policy recommendations. After all, talk is “cheap”, SFI should seek more political influence in leading real economical change
5. Consistently disappointing - This is what the slow creep of good intentions looks like. Though tangentially related to complexity and science, this podcast consistently pushes Narrative above scientific analysis. While the outcomes being sought are in many cases laudable, advocating for a social position isn’t the same thing as doing the real science that many of these social advances have been built on. This is not a science podcast.
6. Incredible insights! - It’s obvious Michael puts extraordinary effort in covering salient topics and finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world - the insights they bring to bear are still mind-blowing every. single. time. Thanks and keep up the great work!
7. I feel like I found my home - There’s a lot of inflammatory rhetoric out there about science and overstated research that doesn’t actually amount to much, or is flat out methodologically unsound. I appreciate this podcast for not doing any of that. The host is well-versed and asks thought provoking and deep questions. The guests are typically understated and incredibly competent. I always finish one of these podcasts feeling like I learned something and with several interesting threads to think about
8. Entertaining exploration of mind expanding topics - I’ve long been very interested in the goals and methods of the SFI and this podcast is a great way to get a peek at it all. Host Michael Garfield does an incredible job guiding the conversations and tying them to other ideas. This is my favorite podcast.
9. Interesting topics & people, moderator way too wordy - The moderator’s soliloquies and incessant references to prior podcasts and SFI personalities detract mightily from the context, content and personality of the interviewees and the program. I imagine he takes as much as % of the program time. Good interviewers asks questions to open a doorway for the interviewee, not box them in to the interviewers agenda.
10. Intellectually Stimulating - Originally found out about Santa Fe listening to the Making Sense podcast episode with David K. and have no looked back. They discus a wide range of different disciplines from the micro to the macro level, all while making it digestible. It’s this reason why I’m pursuing this topic at the professional level.

1. Opinion - Absolutely love listening to your show. Enjoy the scientific approach and high level of instruction. One observation I have has to do with your technique of interviewing a guest. You do seem well prepared and are very knowledgeable about the subject but Dr. Dean seems to get so excited about the topic that he doesn’t allow the guest to teach your listeners. Not to be offensive but he talks as if he is the interviewee rather than the interviewer. It is a real skill to direct a conversation without taking over and talking too much. Please know that what he says is interesting, helpful and important but I would like to hear the expert you have invited.
Thank you again for your podcast and I would love to see your show on youtube!
2. Simply the best - The Sherzais bring together different threads like a tapestry when it comes to brain health. I listen to several doctors who talk about heart disease, cancer, and other diseases that can be prevented and reversed with a plant based diet, but the Sherzais bring expertise in all things brain-related to the table. Their YouTube videos and this podcast are great.
3. Truly the only two you can trust! - In a world full of information about Alzheimers & dementia, Dean & Ayesha Sherzai are the only two you can trust to provide you with accurate information backed by scientific data. It’s so easy to get caught up in the latest & greatest trend or so called cure. In all the noise it’s comforting to know these two have your back! Very professional & personable! You can tell they truly care about you & your brain health!
4. Do you want science that helps your brain? - Here’s a podcast that will actually tell you what the science knows (and doesn’t know) about preserving your cognitive abilities. Too many podcasts just speculate and/or repeat other people’s speculation. Useless! Here’s the real deal. Plus they’re enjoyable to listen to.
5. Thank you! - I greatly appreciate the Sherzais ability to nerd out on the science of brain health and then present it to me in a way that I can understand. I value that they want to stick to the science and still give options for all of us no matter where we are in our health journey. Thank you for your dedication to promoting prevention options that every age and walk of life may benefit from. I look forward to each episode. Again thank you.
6. Current and Authentic Information - I’m so proud to be a part of this brain health community! The Doctors Sherzaid provide their audience with the latest research in a factual, honest, unbiased, easy-to-understand fashion. Their transparency lends to their authenticity. While they are forthcoming about the fact that they are “Whole-food, Plant Based”, they are never condescending or judgmental about those who choose an alternative way of eating. They truly care about the health of their audience and are open-minded with respect to new research and studies. They are willing to share the latest evidence, even when it doesn’t completely align with their lifestyle and I love them for it! I highly recommend becoming a part of their online program. In it you will find more information pertaining to brain health than on ANY other site on the internet. The best part is, they set aside time each week to answer your personal questions! BEST PODCAST, BEST INVESTMENT OF YOUR TIME! PERIOD.
7. Brain Health Revolution Podcast - My family loves this podcast. Drs. Sherzai have an ability to both give evidence based information while also meeting people where they are at. They are compassionate, humble, and super nerdy about data. The episodes are a great length and the information in presented in a way that everyone can understand. So grateful for their knowledge!
8. / Interview with Brenda Davis, RD - How wonderful that top professionals such as yourselves are encouraging lifestyle as a major component to our overall well-being. Your work with patients at Loma Linda and Brenda Davis’ work in the Marshall Islands are concrete examples of ways medical providers (and in my opinion public servants) provide value to underserved and neglected communities/peoples . We Can begin to build agency towards self awareness and empowerment in the area of health. Thank you for this interview and this particular podcast.
9. Fantastic podcast!!! - I’m currently on episode , and am playing catch up! What I really love about this podcast is that many times the host which are doctors end up interviewing other doctors, super credible. I’ve been paying attention to the Seventh-Day Adventist (SDA) health message (which began in the mid s) for the past years and I believe that by paying attention to their health message my overall diet and health has greatly improved. What I find fascinating is how the SDA faith appears to be the only Protestant Christian faith that teaches and keeps the original biblical diet (which was a whole food plant based diet)! What history has shown is that God had always had a remnant group of followers, and currently that group, SDA, is blessed with long life and good health! Don’t believe me? Go read the science and study the blue zones.
10. Thanks so much for this podcast! - I just listened to your conversation about the new Alzheimer’s drug—I love your dedication to scientific honesty! You inspire me, I’m one step forward and occasionally two steps back, but making progress on my lifestyle changes. Both of my parents have suffered from dementia and I’m terrified!
11. My Favorite Podcast - The MD Team Sherzai is the best. I love the passion and dedication to public health. I am pursuing PhD in Occupational Therapy, and I am also passionate about public health. I love your podcast because it is sincere and informative. Trustworthy %. Thank you for being advocates and for bringing scholars and clinicians who are like-minded, dedicated to public health as well.
The Naked Scientists flagship science show, includes the latest science news, interviews with top scientists, hands-on science experiments and answers to your science questions.
Release date: 2023-03-24
1. I love discovering new ideas here - It’s obvious that the Naked Scientists team put extraordinary effort in covering topics and finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world - the insights that they bring to bear is still mind-blowing Every. Single. Time. No matter the subject, you’re guaranteed to gain something from every episode - can’t recommend this show enough
2. Lottery numbers and banana skins - I head a fully incorrect statement regarding carbon content it takes to raise cattle. head of cattle can be raised by two people and horses on land not suitable for crops. I know this because my grandfather did it. Natural grasses from peatland was used for the winter feed, harvested with horse drawn equipment means no tillage and this is done in a region with only a fraction of a centimetre of topsoil. Summer grazing of natural growing grass is used. The local wildlife in competition with cattle are bears as they also eat clover and a few other plants but eat the odd calf so that may be fair and with mull-deer but the deer also consume shrubs that cattle don’t eat. However this was an era of .some billion roughly. Problem is factory farming today. Meat protein is undervalued monetarily because it’s over produced to feed . billion hungry people. If my grandfather was to produce the same amount of nutrients and calories with plants the deforestation would be massive and the carbon content would be massive as well. If a person wants to lesson their carbon footprint, don’t have children it’s the top of the list of what’s in your control and have % success. Animal protein can be a carbon fixing process but not on the volume currently being used. Today’s practices have become the problem and today’s overpopulation of humanoids is the problem. The deforestation required to produce plant matter insect free to feed . billion people is still the problem no matter how it’s sliced. Shipping and concentrating essential nutrients for proper health with a vegan or vegetarian diet is just as problematic due to the growing population. We have become an unsustainable population for our current strategies.
3. Setting the standard - The Naked Scientists podcast team has been sharing approachable and relatable science topics with the world for over a decade! They have truly set the bar for science podcasts. Each episode has a theme (even if that them is Q&A) but they always cover other timely or interesting tidbits. This means each episode has many different facets and is worth listening to, even if the major topic is not your cuppa tea. I started listening a couple of years ago, starting with episodes from about five years back. Great road trip podcast; listen when cleaning the house, waiting for an appointment, on a plane or completing some other mundane task on which you do not need to concentrate.
4. Informative and entertaining! - For many people today, science has become chic - but for many people, modern advances in various scientific fields is not something everyone can easily grasp while reading journals or peer research. Enter the Naked Scientists. Each episode features the panel of experts who break down the latest news, trends and theories, as well as provides answers for listener-submitted questions ... all presented in plain English for the regular folk to understand. And it’s all presented with a lighthearted sense of humor and wit. And for some of us outside of the UK, listening to people with British accents tends to have a calming effect, I’m guilty of it.
5. Fun, informative and accessible - Great podcast about science news, with a great cast of presenters and show variety (news, questions from listeners, news from science fairs, etc). The refinements to the show-new music, etc are great. I always long for the next episode. Good web site, too. Thanks guys!
6. Essential listening - No other podcast that I’ve found covers the full breadth of science news, along with in-depth conversations about the latest discoveries. I have friends who are actual scientists, and I am often more informed than they are about what’s going on in the science world thanks to Dr. Smith and the Naked Scientists team. I especially love the contributions of all of the female scientists on the show. Dr. Helen Scales is always a delight to listen to. Her passion for her field and joy of talking about science comes through in every episode she is a part of.
7. Outstanding Science Reporting - Dr. Chris Smith and the other Naked Scientists give me my weekly dose of science in fields that I don't follow. The story/science selection is very good and the show's staff are excellent reporters. The way they report on the stories keeps the show from getting dry, without trying to be funny.
8. Nicely balanced and comprehensive - I like the scope and quality of this program. It provides for user input, covers basic and advanced topics and helpful advice. Dr Chris Smith does other programs, too, and I'd listen to anything he works on. Thanks to him as well as everyone who works on this show.
9. I miss Naked Archaeology but this fills the void. - And then there was ONE. . . This appears to be the last Naked [fill in the Science] podcast. That's a shame. everyone one of them strove to bring you up[ to date discoveries and thoughtful recent commentary. But the most generic is by no means the least. They cover everything from Antarctic drilling, to archaeology, to behavioral science, to population studies, to genetic research and more beyond. Worth a serious listen.
10. FANTASTIC!!! - I've been listening to these podcasts for years, usually while I am hiking. Each one is informative and fascinating. What a wonderful way to inform the non-scientist about the phenomenal discoveries all around us. I love each of your host's unassuming manner, wit, and intellect. Usually when I return from my daily hike, I have been so absorbed, that I don't even realize I was exercising. Lots of times I wish I could recall everything discussed, but that is not possible. However, when a related conversation comes up with family or friends, I find that it all comes back to me. Thanks so much for helping me to be more informed. This is far and away my favorite podcast.
11. It doesn't get any better - This is by far the best science show podcast peroid. The big difference, and what makes this show so good, is that the staff are highly educated scientists themselves, with the abillity and tallent to ask relevant and probing questions. Judge for yourself. Listen to a couple of shows of the Naked Scientist say compared to Science Friday. It's the difference between Chess and Checkers. The range of topics discussed and the level of discourse is fantastic.

1. Love this podcast - Just finished listening to Ann Gauger’s story- what a remarkable person and path! The science presented in this series is always interesting and compelling but I really enjoyed this personal look into what shapes the scientists who go against the grain and unflinchingly seek the truth. They have a gift in being able to see the fallacy of accepted dogma and courage to present findings that are uncomfortable for the majority of their colleagues. Thank you for showing us just how amazing this universe and everything in it is, down to the most minute details and being a part of deepening my faith. Living in a purposeful world brings much more happiness and fulfillment than the alternative which shamefully has been foisted upon us throughout our educations.
2. Honest and Eye Opening - When I was a young biology student at UCLA, I couldn’t help but notice there was something deeply wrong with my education. Courses on biology (especially evolutionary biology) seemed geared to reduce the fantastic spectacle of nature to a child’s block toy. “There are no mysteries” I was told, “Everything you thought was great, is boring.” I knew that couldn’t be right but I knew I didn’t want to be bored, so I went and did other things. I’m a computer programmer now and I have a better grasp on concepts of function and complexity (not to mention logic). I can see now how much Darwinism was never as much science as it was a Victorian cultural artifact. Thank you for the podcast and please keep it up.
3. For a good summary of I.D., listen to the July podcast - Casey Luskin provides a clear and interesting overview of the arguments for intelligent design. He sites several very specific studies to illustrate his points.The studies have been published in mainstream peer reviewed journals.
Three Nobel laureates have concluded that there is some real science here.
4. Excellent information on new discoveries - This program is great no matter what your beliefs are regarding origin of biology and the diversity of life on earth. The criticisms are constructive, beneficial, and productive, and the conversations are truly intriguing to those who love this area of research. Great work Discovery team!!
5. Love it, but… - There is one one Creator who could lovingly make all that we see and discover: the Lord Jesus Christ, as in a literal interpretation of the Bible in both John and Genesis . Romans states the dire consequences of rejecting that fact. ID is great about the issues of science that point to the Creator, but it refuses to identify Him. That is my only complaint: keep up the great work!
6. This isn’t a religious podcast. Pure science! - Excellent minds on this show. Intelligent Design (ID) is growing, and for good reason. I’m happy to see it reaching more people. And no, scripture is never quoted in these podcasts (I’m sure that people who are hostile toward ID will say that this is a Bible podcast).
7. Thought Provoking - Bumped into this podcast by accident but have been listening ever since. A lot of topics and information that I have never thought about. Like how you present fact based rational for your content - there is no ideological driven agenda: here are the facts which you think point to ID and if the listener doesn’t agree it doesn’t mean they are the enemy like is the case in so much discourse today.
8. Excellent and essential learning for every age group - Very interesting and in-depth discussions that are compatible with reality and filled with enlightening facts. I especially recommend this for youth to teach them facts based science instead of baseless and ridiculous teachings of evolutionary theory
9. No place better - I have been listening to and enjoying ID the future for many years. In my experience there is no better place to get the most up-to-date and user-friendly information on the miserable state of materialistic science and the unquestionable evidence for design in the universe than this podcast.
10. Great Podcast - I love this podcast! It gives me hope to see that there are such notable scientists out there fighting for the belief in intelligent design. The podcast gives me more confidence to discuss intelligent design with those that don’t believe in It. I personally see no problem in the length as the - min podcasts are the same length as my commute to work , however, I can see how somebody could want lengthier versions .
11. ID Rocks! - I have listened to the I D the future podcast for well over a decade, and I am I have always loved it. The fine people at the Discovery Institute are first rate in a handful of related disciplines. I love hearing interviews of Stephen Meyer, Ann Gauger, Douglas AXe, Michael Behe, Gunter Bechly, and so many other brilliant scientists and philosophers.

1. Brainy Empath - I could seriously spend the rest of my life listening to Steven talk about empathy, flow, our planet, human development and anything else he wants to throw at me. As a fellow animal advocate and curious, passionate empath I love these podcasts! Can’t afford ZD yet, so these will have to do for now.
2. Surrounding yourself with people who inspire you - The Flow Research Collective is doing seriously cutting edge work to help people become more self aware of things that may be blocking them AND things that can help them really find the success they desire. Their work is research backed and data driven. This podcast takes their work to another level by sharing stories of people who are living examples of what they are discovering in their work. I just listened to the episode with Dr. Karen Darke, one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met. She is paralyzed from the chest down and has still managed to accomplished more than most of us could ever even imagine. By listening to this podcast you will be surrounding yourself with people who are sure to inspire you to level up your own life. Well done and thank you FRC.
3. Laird Hamilton Episode Was Awesome - I starting listening to the Flow Collective Radio podcast after recently reading Stealing Fire and The Rise of Superman. I wanted to understand some of the "peak experiences" I've had during trail running. It all makes sense now. I am incorporating the flow triggers into my training now to increase performance. The % rule and Clear Goals (Heart Rate/Time & Technicality) have increased my performance for training runs. I recently listed to the Laird Hamilton episode. There was so much wisdom to be gleamed from the episode and Laird in order to live a healthy,happy, and meaningful lifestyle, especially as we age. The part about "burrowing down" after a big event and becoming a generalist rings so true with my experiences.
4. Grateful for this podcast - For few years I’ve been following Steven Kotler’s research about flow/peak performance science. This team along with selected guests manage to explain a lot of things I’ve experienced good or bad in projects or life in general. Also in the midst of those things this information has helped me tip the scales in my favor and those I work with.
5. BAM! WOW! - Just listened to episode and I am hooked! I am a mathematics teacher and typically we do very little to embrace flow in classrooms. We are hindering peak mathematical performance through our instructional delivery. I have been working for years to increase motivation, engagement, attitude, skill and math achievement and FLOW is the answer!
6. Put the ego aside - Great content but Steve’s ego gets in the way. He interrupts way too much and speaks over the top of the host and the guest, as if he has to prove that he has more knowledge than everyone else. It makes it difficult to follow the conversation and distracts from the overall message. If the guests are the ‘experts’, let them talk!!!
7. What a Treasure! - I listen to everything Steven Kotler, Jamie Wheal and the Flow Research Genome provide. This group has up leveled my life tremendously and I love them! I’ve added much of what they teach to my own trainings and I share their material with everyone who will listen.Who they are, and what they provide is a real treasure!
8. Ready for the Inside Track to Upgrade your Life? - In a world of fanatic hype and big marketing claims on productivity, the serious CEO has become disillusioned. Steven and Rian’s brainchild podcast is the refreshing exception. These episodes aren’t defined by platitudes and wishful thinking. Rather, they’re forged from experts who’ve mastered their craft based upon hard science. There is a new state of human performance and this podcast is your quickest path to practically decoding Flow and upgrading your life.

1. Fascinating, but a little creepy. Be careful. - When I first became aware of evolutionary psychology through Robert Wright’s book “The Moral Animal,” it was a game changer for me. It explained just about everything that had happened to me in my life up to that point. It especially rang true for all the boy-girl stuff. In its explanation of why men and women do the things they do, it all seemed to make perfect sense. The determinism and unfalsifiable claims in this system, however, makes me nervous. For those who tend towards thinking of everything in genetic terms, I think the lure towards eugenics becomes irresistible. It has happened before, and I see evidence that it is happening again. The authors of this podcast seem a little too glib and dismissive of this dark history and the possibility of its re-emergence.
2. Great show, love all the discussions - It's refreshing to hear these informed, critical thinkers discuss political, social and psychological news and views. One has to go out of their way these days to find a different point of view, amidst the heavily censored, state sponsored MSM. I tell all my friends about this podcast. Longtime listener. Thank you!
3. Roe v Wade episode - Neither of you have enough basic knowledge of the content of the trigger laws that are going into effect in states across the south and midwest as a result of the overturning of Roe v. Wade to share a conversation that reflects reality and gives people accurate information. You have a responsibility to not rest on what you know from personal experience from some years ago and do current research of the facts on the Guttmacher Institute at least. No one can be an expert in everything, so if you don’t have the time, it’s better to have some humility and not speak as authorities. If you felt a responsibility to look into it, you would’ve run into the fact that state bans are attempting to criminalize traveling to other states and using or mailing the abortion pill. There are laws that empower people to sue those that assist women in getting abortions. Women are already being denied treatment in hospitals to evacuate their uteruses until they are more seriously ill even if they are miscarrying because their symptoms present the same as a self-induced abortion that’s not complete. They are bleeding out and in incredible pain. Some abortion funds have already stopped assisting women with funds to travel and access abortion because they fear being charged with a crime, including individual staff. You spoke of the draft decision that was leaked. A reading of it, or a reading of some analysis that quoted from it, makes it clear that the overturning of Roe at this time by the make-up of this court is motivated by a theocratic Christian ideology that an embryo or a fetus is a person who has rights that supercede a woman’s right to decide whether or not to carry a fetus to term, that the science of viability should no longer be a deciding factor. To say the overturn is based on correcting a procedural mistake by past justices is based on not paying attention to this issue in any depth - which Dr. Lisle admitted. I agree that what’s needed is a federal law restoring the legal right to abortion nationwide and the reason everyone should care deeply about this no matter where they live is because this ruling affects all women and girls and how they are viewed by society, as well as what role in society women will have—as property of the state when they are pregnant, as breeders and mothers of children or as full human beings who are able to participate in all spheres of society through education and careers.
4. BEST PODCAST THAT EXISTS - Definitely a life changing podcast, this has to be one of the best I've come across. Even though the content can be depressing and earth shattering, I couldn't stop listening if i tried. My views of reality are changed and there's no going back. Dr Lisle/Howk are years and IQ points ahead of your average psychologist and they will literally pinpoint the root of all your life problems in one consultation (offered on their website). This podcast will teach you truths about reality that are nowhere else to be found.
5. Divisive but worth it for a while. - I really loved this show. The early episodes changed my life. I would suggest listening to the first , but once we reach the current moment it veers into territory that is unfortunately not my cup of tea. I don’t agree with their political conclusions and have a really hard time with it. But definitely listen for yourself and come to your own conclusion!
6. Irresponsible - I used to like to listen despite the fact that the two doctors can be condescending (especially in their laughter at their listeners in certain instances). Recently however the amount of irresponsible misinformation being spouted about the pandemic and vaccines is ridiculous. I am all for hearing differing opinions, but the doctors say things that are just wrong and don’t acknowledge this. Real disappointment.
7. Mixed - I used to like and respect Dr Lisle until I heard his vaccine idiocy. His whole argument is based on falsehoods. He assumes the vaccine is % effective and that eight year olds can’t die of Covid. Even before Delta that wasn’t true. The evolutionary psychology is interesting but libertarianism is stupid.
8. Cancelled - Update June : I can no longer stomach this show. The arrogance and support of unsubstantiated conspiracy theories is off the charts now. Lisle especially keeps claiming he knows stuff % and then gets proven wrong (eg. pandemic will be over in weeks).They belong with Pam Popper and the other quacks. Very sad because I followed these guys for years and now I'm questioning many things I thought I learned from them and their associates. Too hard to separate the gold from the garbage. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________ Dr. Lisle's book The Pleasure Trap and this podcast are some of the most helpful resources on discovering how to live healthy and happy. He answered one of my questions on a recent podcast which was super generous and helpful! Just a really great unique perspective on everything in life. Not politically correct at all but I can excuse a few things I don't agree with since there are so many nuggets of wisdom here. And he is super kind. Usually. :) And Nate does a great job hosting, asking follow up questions and commenting throughout the show.
9. Vaccine Passports and Libertarian principals - This is an amazing discussion about vaccination. I love the Libertarian viewpoint. I am not antivax but am amazed at the way people feel it is their business to ask me if I have been vaccinated. What happened to Healthcare Privacy? I have not been vaccinated yet and am not ready to do so. The drug industry has proven that they, and the government, are not to be trusted so I am still watching and learning what will be the best option for me, a year old healthy plant based woman. We are on a slippery slope to government control of our personal lives. Thank you!
10. Lori - I find that Dr. Lisle gives some cold unchristian but useful information. The addition of Dr. Howk added a small amount female insight and a tiny bit of warmth, however, I find them both arrogant & condescending. Their banter gives the appearance that they are trying to impress each other and heir inability to refrain from laughing at their listeners questions demonstrates their inability to beat their genes.
11. Insightful - This podcast is the most insightful podcast ever. It’s also probably the best podcast you will ever listen to inregards of your health. If you truly want to better you life and change and understand why we do the things we do, give this podcast a listen. Take notes and enjoy and quirky humor.

1. So happy I found this podcast - Dr. Tara makes change so doable. The way she intertwines science with real life experiences…really hits home as I am embarking on a “transformation”. Change is hard, but Dr. Tara provides the perfect mix of advice, scientific evidence, and application techniques to deliver a seemingly doable formula for deep and lasting change.
2. Watched and Followed - I have watched seemingly hundreds of interviews on Lewis Howes YT channel and you stand out. Keep moving forward with your focus on drawing similarities to spiritual beliefs and modern neuroscience. What was once considered mystic is scientifically supported more and more each day (with of course acknowledging frauds not being so) and your internationally validated education can give you a platform to speak honestly about any consistencies you see. Joy to watch and enjoying your curious nature as opposed to a “know it all” approach. Cheers!

1. Excellent...but s l o w d o w n - I’m hooked! Excellent, thoughtful discussion, proving once again how potential insights lie at the intersection of disciplines ripe for the picking. I’m a systems engineer in aerospace and defense so my ear may not be as tuned to the cadence and pronunciation of pharmacological or scientific names; hence, my plea. But keep it up, you are doing great. I’m a loyal but demanding listener!
2. Great podcast! - Fascinating and artful coverage of current events in the bio world! As a subject matter expert, I appreciate the technical details. However, the hosts manage to communicate these details in a clear and concise way without losing the bigger picture. Timely, clear, and thorough! Highly recommend!
3. Definitive podcast on the future of biology - Bio eats world is clearly a take on “software is eating the world” - a quote from Marc Andreessen at az that foretold the incredible advances enabled by software. This new “Bio eats World” podcast, enabled by az, is predicting similar tectonic scale breakthroughs in biology. The first episode, the biology of aging, gives remarkable arguments that indeed, aging itself may be able to be slowed. The discussion gives cogent evidence from some of the greatest biology experts. Looking forward to hearing about the next breakthroughs! I’m hooked!!!
Collective Insights is a voyage through topics and technologies revolutionizing human well-being.

1. Do better vetting of guests! - Enjoyed Jamie Wheal’s interview with Dr. Tara Isabella Burton even though I don’t agree with her perspective. Very bright conversation! However, I’m less enamored with Huberman as guest. I feel he abuses his Stanford creds to promote pseudoscience, to pedal vitamins & to gain a fan base. People assume because he’s got a PhD he’s qualified to speak in everything science & health related. He’s not. We do not need more spin doctors or Dr. Oz’s in the world. I’d prefer fewer podcast interviews of higher quality. But that wouldn’t fit the monetization & self promotional scheme going on here.
2. Insightful, In-depth - I find many of the episodes to be informative, frequently in-depth, and engaging. As as example the “Home Grown Humans” episode was an illuminating look at the “Burners without Borders” group and its contributions throughout the world — to the point where I have a sudden interest in the group as one I would like to support.
3. A Podcast - In world where media is trying to grab my attention I'm glad I give it to Collective Insight. On top of loving NHC's products I love the podcasts diversity of important topics pertinant to my life as well as the depth and knowledge of their guests. I've "followed" the hosts for a while and feel blessed to learn from them as well as their A-list guests. I've become a more reasonasble, practical and upleveled/meta thinker which has impacted all areas of my life. From gut health, posture, psychadelics, mental toughness, cellular function, biohacking, mindfullness I've learned how to become healthier, smarter, faster, more resilient aka anti-fragile and an overall better person thanks to NHC. A little review on their supplements: In just a month my skin has improved greatly via Qualia Skin, despite the cold NY weather and low humidity heat indoors. Check out the study they published for exactly what skin qualities can be improved. Qualia Night has helped my sleep and cortisol stress levels. I love that they easily honor their money back guarantee if the product doesn't work for you. % in Days Money Back Guarantee they call it.
4. Every Episode is Insightful - Collective Insights is the only podcast that I look forward to and listen to every episode. I love the broad range of topics concerning health, spirituality, relationships, and longevity. Each episode is entertaining yet fascinating. The interviewer manages to ask all the questions I want to know. I highly recommend this podcast!
5. Simply Incredible! - You want to grow your mind and expand your understanding of life? This is the podcast for you. Combine this podcast with their Qualia Mind supplement for the full experience. Collective Insights has changed my life for the better, and I am thankful for their expertise and continued innovation in the neuroscience field.
6. Informative - While on my journey in understanding how to "hack" my biology without "pharmaceutical medication", and instead use natural supplements and other safer means like exercise and meditation. This podcast has helped me understand the science behind it. The experts guests on the show dive deep and provide information from scientific papers, or on going clinical trials to inform their viewers about ways to optimize their health.
7. Upwelling of poignant content - What a show this is! I’ve delved into this podcast after completing Recapture the Rapture, and it’s everything I was hoping it would be. Insights resonate, guests inform and information is so on point. I love that I found this podcast so that I can fill my time with the kind of information I really want to hear all the time. This material can never be said nor heard enough times. It synergizes much of my feelings and puts into words many of my thoughts, tying the golden thread through it all. Kudos, and keep it coming.
8. Trusted source for personal optimization! - I’ve grown to trust Neurohacker as my goto for high quality info & supplemental support to help me reach the next level in my health, mood, productivity, and overall wellbeing. If you haven’t already be sure to check out the interviews with Ariel Garten, Amy Cuddy, and Gabor Mate. All the episodes are great but if you only listened to three these would be my picks!
9. FUNctional Neuroscience - What I love about Collective Insights is the diversity and caliber of the interviews and discussions. As a someone who works in the arena of delivering healing to people (chiropractor, bodyworker, movement teacher, biohacker), I’m continually looking for resources to help nourish and fuel my inner and outer self — my integrated being — so I can express and imbue others with those resources. It’s also phenomenal that this podcast comes from the same company that makes quality products in the cognitive neuroscience category: Neurohacker Collective. It’s a wonderful partnership of material and immaterial (yet tangible) tools to help people access deeper levels of awareness and enjoyment in life. i love the discussions on breath work, movement, awareness, integration, and fitness. For a tip, I know many who want to enhance their listening speed, so I recommend listening to this podcast on .x speed to catch up on old episodes!
10. The art of reverse aging - These podcasts are amazing for diving into the research behind the study of longevity - how do we live longer, better? From physical health to mental health, no topic is missed in these podcasts! I always come away learning something I didn’t know before. Highly recommend for those starting their health and healing journey or those already deep in it, we all could learn something.
11. Favorite pdocast - This is literally my go-to podcast - I recently discovered audiobooks and podcasts (I know I’m late in the game), and THIS podcast is incredible. They have wonderful guests, and they speak deeply into the science and the process of the work of whatever topic they’re on. I especially love David because he’s smart as heck - I have learned SO MUCH from this podcast and the doctors who present their work. Highly recommended
