Always thought provoking and well done.
This podcast is very well crafted. I've been listening to it for a year or so, and while I have not gone back and listened to the whole archive, the last twenty or so episodes are all excellent. They are very good at explaining the nuances and complexities of an issue without getting bogged down in the details, and they seem to be paying attention to worthwhile topics of discussion.
I've been meaning to leave a review for a while, since I really enjoy the show, and my reason for getting around to it was because I wanted to leave a little feedback on the most recent episode, Unsealed Conspiracies. I have enjoyed your movie-review episodes in the past, since it gives the benefit of knowing what they're about without having to sit through it and tear one's own hair out. However, this one was a little hard to follow, since the hosts were watching and reacting to it in real time, and sometimes talked over the audio from the show. I still enjoyed it, since hearing Ashlyn and Lauren react to ridiculous nonsense is always entertaining. I think the format used previously for other movie review episodes, where you watch the video and then have a conversation about it, was slightly easier to comprehend. On the other hand, I know this episode was designed to be a low-effort affair, since y'all have been very busy lately. I imagine editing in audio from the movie would be a time-consuming affair, and it was interesting hearing the actual audio of the movie, along with the real-time reactions. So, I guess there are pros and cons to this approach.
Anyway, I just wanted to give a little feedback on what that format felt like from this end. Thanks for doing what y'all do, and keep up the good work!

Interesting podcast as usual....but....
...I was puzzled about a remark about Richard Dawkins...is there an issue with Dawkins I am not aware of? I admire his intellect.
