Better than the TV show!

by Tenchi1970! on Apr 23, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I love the TV show! But the TV episodes don't have the time to get into the deep details. That's why I think these podcasts are actually better than the show. Definitely worth listening!

Super informative

This podcast goes into detail about the subject briefly touched on the TV show without getting bogged down in too much information. I've learned so much from this podcast so far and it's a great start to being a more well informed person.

Great podcast! Very informative and engaging.

Depressing reality? Meet Adam

by SelesnyaMage on Mar 23, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I've sometimes described this show to others as a larger scale 99% Invisible that is less celebratory of human achievement and more apocalyptic-y, but it's Adam's relentlessly upbeat and curious nature that reminds us that there is much to be hopeful about; in championing the work in greater detail of the guestperts of his TV show, Adam spotlights important work and directs his listeners to ways that they can help. The gratitude expressed by the guests is so real, and it's the same feeling I have as a listener, to have the unexpected opportunity to learn the intricacies of so many important topics affecting everyone. A+ intersecionality. Highly recommended listening.

So interesting!

I love both the television show and podcast of Adam ruins everything. However, the Podcast gives me life! The Podcasts cover interesting topics more in depth and really educate the listeners. Adam is a great host and a deeply thoughtful person.

You blew it.

I enjoyed the episode with Dale Jamison about climate change, but you only reported half the story. Sure we are taking carbon out of the ground and putting it into the air, but you didn't even mention the technologies currently available to remove carbon from the air. Google "jet fuel from the air ", or "plastic from the air". The German chemistry site reports being able to produce 20,000 liters of clean jet fuel daily from one small plant, imagine if there were 1000 such plants around the world. Plastic can be produced from the air cheaper than from fossil fuels. Do your research and report the whole story if you want to be a viable podcast.

Super informative and entertaining

I'm really pleased with the path this show has taken as it's developed. It's always been an immensely entertaining and interesting show, but as the show has found its identity it's really blossomed. I'm loving the guests who address controversial issues with facts and/or solutions. Very educational but also hopeful in a strange way! I'm continuously in awe of the amazing knowledge and character of the guests Adam interviews; keep up the great work, guys!

I had never heard of Adam before (and still haven't seen any of his things on CollegeHumor or watched his show on TruTV) but was so happy to find this podcast. It's funny, smart, and goes just the right amount in depth about each topic. Love it!

Adam retains the joy and energy that makes the show so much fun, but transfers it into long form conversations with the most fascinating experts from the show. A really fun listen and a good way to pass the time between shows.

Thank you for adding to my "well, actually" knowledge base.

Overly biased

by navguy72 on Nov 25, 2016
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

This podcast is interesting but he very clearly is biased in his presentation if many of the topics. He is also finds ways of twisting the real information to look less than what it really is when it doesn't fit his narrative. It's a shame that he couldn't be in biased in this because it has tons of potential. A better podcast for something like this would be Science VS.

Adam Ruins Everything except great content

by jdpipkin on Nov 23, 2016

Adam Ruins Everying on TruTV is literally my favorite show on TV. The podcast is just as good. I love when my depressing facts are mixed with comedy.

By far my favorite podcast

by Latinitas on Nov 19, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

If you are passionate about learning and truth, this podcast is for you. While, I am well aware that Adam's sense of humor (especially when he's off script) is not for everyone, this is the most interesting and timely in this genre of podcasts.

Good even without the TV show

by Jacqui Mae on Nov 09, 2016

I rarely get to see this TV show, but I love the videos that will pop up from time to time, This podcast can definitely be enjoyed without its TV counterpart. Adam's point of view is similar to mine and I love hearing in depth from the gueststhat sometimes only get a cameo in the show. A great listen!

Super interesting and funny!

Show is great! Podcast is meh...

by rayrgirl on Oct 26, 2016
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Don't get me wrong, I love the original show. It finds a way to make these little known facts fun to hear about and mainstream in a way that nothing else really has. However, while the people being interviewed in this podcast are awesome and really cool to hear from, Adam himself is an AWFUL interviewer. Literally just rephrases the things his guests say in a way that doesn't add to the conversation at all or, if unable to do that, will ask a question that takes the conversation in a completely different direction. Also his awkward chuckling, endearing on the show is really discomforting here.

Interesting Topics and Great Conversation

by Spiritbug on Oct 03, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

Adam Ruins Everything the podcast delves further into specific issues than the TV is able to. His expert guests have help listeners think more deeply about even seemingly small topics such as the costs of free parking. I always learn something new from this podcast. It has helped me see the world around me differently.

Great fun, great information

by Twaberry on Sep 30, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

I havwe enjoyed Adam's show immensely. Getting more in depth with the topics and people he interviews on the TV show is a great way to allow us to be even more enlightened. We can think more about the rhetoric and leanings of these experts as well. To really be academic it is important to think about our sources. That's the point of Adam ruining everything. It onl;y makes sense to be able to then question his sources which question your exisitng sources. Great work, good quality and still fun!

Excellent companion to the tv show

I really enjoy the show, and the podcast is so interesting!My only complaints are that the show isn't weekly (please make it weekly, Adam!), that it's over way too soon, and that Adam gets so excited talking to interesting people that he sometimes talks over them (my only reason for not giving it 5 stars). Please work on this, Adam. Other than that, it's so interesting, and I love it!

In-depth Info on Interesting Topics

Rating: ★★★★★

If you love the TV show this is based on, you'll love this podcast. It's really cool to hear more (and more in-depth) information from all the experts he talks to. And beyond the show, it's just really cool conversations about interesting and important topics with people who know what they're talking about.

Quirky and Informative

Adam delivers a quirky and informative look at how "common-sense" thinking can fail while also offering knowledge and proposed solutions from various subject matter experts. This is a podcast for critical thinkers with a sense of humor!

Great Discussion Podcast

by raven 19 on Aug 06, 2016
Rating: ★★★★☆

The podcast is very interesting and the topics are nice to listen to and have depth. However, at times, I feel that the host tries too hard to make the podcast comedic, for example his laughing during the podcast seems to come out of nowhere and at times is very distracting. I feel that the host should come to terms with the fact that the podcast can never fully be as funny as the tv show which uses visual gags.UPDATE: the last two episodes have been very well paced and informative

Wish there were more of them!
