  • Usually great content, but sadly tilts Left

    Not even a religious person but it’s clear there’s a pinch of bias in some content.

  • I listen to this every week as it's a nice change of pace from the rest of my playlist. Seth is interesting and Molly is a good cohost. Skeptic check is my favorite version of the podcast. Each show has multiple segments and it's not overdone with ads like some podcasts.

  • Amazing accessible science podcast!

    BiPiSci takes a step back from very diverse scientific problems and then approaches it from any angle they can find. Very informative and interesting and 100% scientific. This might be an acquired taste to some. The host is somewhat intense, there are a LOT of puns and some pretty lame skits, I’m sorry to say. They do have a gigantic back catalogue which I've been binging on for over a month or so.
