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.
Recommended by a friend - wow, love it!
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.
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.
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!
At there top of my unread list.
Great podcast for going beyond the headlines and getting details from actually qualified guests.
Really great listen. I hope this continues, one of my all time favorite podcasts
The TV show is fantastic, and the podcast is a great companion piece for it. Adam Conover is great, and his guests are always top notch.
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.
The show is great but the podcast digs deeper! Love it! Fantastic addition to the Max Fun network!
The tv show is awesome, and I love hearing from the experts on the podcast. Keep up the good work!
Informative entertaining and overall exciting podcast.
Adam told me if I gave a bad review he'd kill my favorite puppy!! Little does he know I love most puppies, good thing I really do like this podcast or he'd have to dedicate his life to puppy murder!!!
Maybe consider a podcast with more research done
This is an extremely entertaining and informative podcast for any fan of the show. The guests are knowledgeable with their own flair. Very fun; I look forward to future episodes!
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.
Good long form interviews, excellent production, interesting topics
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.
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.
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!
I absolutely love the TV show and was very glad to find the Podcast. Diving deep into topics to make you think with a bit of fun and sarcasm. Love it. Keep it up Adam .
Adam does a great job interviewing experts. Very excited to have this in my rotation.
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.
Hilarious and informative on its own and brings even more enjoyment to its namesake television program
This is probably one of the worst podcasts I've ever listened to
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.
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!
The guests are are well chosen and bring a lot of specific knowledge.
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!
I love the premise of the show. It gets people thinking instead of accepting. Keep up the great work and great guests!
Thank you for being open and honest. It's so refreshing to see why certain traditions are important and some are just nuts.
Love the show, love the podcast. Approach them with an open mind & you may as well.
I've never seen the show but I now want too. Really funny. I am curious what they talk about on the show because I feel like I am learning from this but wish it was maybe more structured? Not sure
I shouldn't be surprised that this show is so enjoyable
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.
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!
Well-conducted, funny, intelligent interviews with interesting people from a variety of disciplines. That's pretty much all you need to know.
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
I love this podcast, there is a great variety of topics talked about and the people he interviews make whole industries I never cared about come to life. Thanks Adam!
Having watched the entire 12 episode season 1 of Adam Ruins Everything easily a dozen times, I am eager to get into these podcasts + can't wait for season 2 of A.R.E.
A great podcast to listen to. Every episode dives into a different topic, and they all keep you interested.
Great job with the podcast! I love Adam's use of citations and experts and this podcast is no different. I enjoy the variety of topics that the podcast delves into, either original or supplementing an episode. Can't wait till the next season!!!!
Very enlightening about subjects i didn't know could be so interesting. Kudos Adam.
A wonderful free-form, long interview style podcast that both viewers of and those unfamiliar with the show can listen to and enjoy. Canât wait for more episodes!
"It's concerning that we are letting the private sector figure it out". -quote from first episode, which ended up being nothing more than an advertisement for government-run transportation systems. Episode two spent some time looking down their noses at religion because, "they lie to you and tell you that you're never going to die". If you are left-leaning yourself, you will probably enjoy it, but centrists, moderates, and conservatives will feel patronized and insulted.
A fascinating, thoughtful and more in depth examination of the fun topics Adam covers on his TV show. In this podcast, though, his guests get to show the depth of their expertise and explain their positions in much greater detail. Such a well-done podcast.
