Unfortunately unbalanced and under researched

by Mike_the_Lib on Jan 18, 2018
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Listened to the college funding episode and was disappointed with the last of investigation or challenging questions of the guest. Presenting a one-sided perspective does not illuminate the topic and leads to less, rather than more, understanding of complex issues.

Even better than the TV show

I love the show and have loved Adam's stuff for years. But the podcast is simply the best. So many of the topics on the TV show just don't get the detail they deserve and this podcast really covers them perfectly. Excellent guests every time and Adam is brilliant.

Love it!

A helpful look into issues that you might not think about, and explores them in a novel, nuanced, and in-depth manner. I've used the one on end-of-life care to broach difficult topics with my loved ones so that we are all coming at the issue with a shared understanding and vocabulary. Really great podcast!

Unbelievable show that questions our society and what we know as true

I absolutely love the show and the podcast is a fantastic extension of it! I truly appreciate the effort and research you put into all of these topics. It’s great to question the reasons why we do the things we do which this show does so well. As a result I think it does a great job of opening up our society to understanding a better way or at least questioning if it is the best way or not.Thank you for your work and keep the fight going!!

Excellent TV show and equally excellent podcast in its own right. My only complaint: Adam's TV show tries to hard to expose 'the hidden truth,' making legitimate truths now seem incorrect. It's okay, though, I understand that Adam has to keep the content "shocking" to keep the ratings. I highly recommend this podcast to people who love to learn.

Great show, great podcast

My girlfriend introduced me to the show and she was right, it’s great. Then I later discovered the podcast and I enjoy it almost as much as the show. Post show I always have something to share.

Engaging, informative, and fair

I thoroughly enjoy listening to this podcast. I have been looking for an entertaining programming like this but was having trouble finding one that was not too conservative or liberal but I finally found it. 99% of the time you are asking all the hard questions from multiple ideologies and bring out some of the best dialog on difficult topics such as Healthcare or polarization of society. Thanks for your hard work and research.

Great listen!

I like the show, like the premise. Can’t stand hearing you say “you know” over and over. You know, it sounds like verbal styrofoam to protect your fragile argument.

I only just learned about Adam and his shows when he was a guest recently on Ask Me Another, but I’m already hooked after listening to his hour-long interview with U Mich linguistics professor Anne Curzan. The subject was fascinating, Prof. Curzan was engaging, and Adam’s interview technique was thoughtful and informed.

Adam Doesn’t Ruin Podcasts

Dumb joke, I know. But this is a great podcast that dives deep into subjects that only get touched on in the truTV show. Get started by choosing a subject you’re interested in!

This guy spins things to fit his liberal narrative. This garbage is not worth listening to unless you don't care about facts. If you want your news filtered through the viewpoint of a liberal douche who hates white people then by all means have at it.

Adam is an engaging host in the podcast version of the awesome show by the same name. While the show does "ruin" commonly held societal beliefs, the show and podcast actually made me feel relieved to know that some of the things we take as facts aren't what they seem ("Adam Ruins Pregnancy", anyone?). They definitely made me think, and they might even have caused a few of my paradigms to shift. Perhaps "Adam Renovates Everything" would be a more accurate way to describe how you feel after listening.

Good stuff.

I appreciate the chance for Adam's guests to elaborate on their subjects beyond the five-minute blurb the show offers.

That first transit system interview was amazing, and really opened my eyes to thinking about how and why I use transit the way I do, as well as realizing that the Department of Transportation in a city isn't just about bus stop ad management. If you crave more information after the show is over, longer interviews with the experts are a great place to start.

Things aren't black and white or even shades of grey anymore. Instead of there being two sides to everything, there are 12 sides. This pod is as informative as it is engaging and ... basically I hate everything now, except for the podcast.

Excellent podcast!

I thought I loved the show. The podcast blows it out of the water. While I wish there was a way to make more episodes with all the experts of each episodes, even just having one is so enlightening and fascinating about the topic. Thank you for this show and podcast, cast and crew.

For anyone who appreciates thorough, deep dives in a fun and funny conversational style of fascinating topics concerning all walks of life, you MUST listen and subscribe. The tv show only scratches the surface, and if you crave knowledge and truth, this will not disappoint. Also a BIG THANKS to Adam and crew for making it all happen.

If you like the TV show, you'll love the podcast. If you haven't seen the show, the podcast is still great. Adam goes much deeper into the subjects he discusses on his show, interviewing the pros, but still keeping it fun.

I have learned so much from this podcast. I really enjoy how the format allows for time to go in depth and learn what makes these experts excited about their subjects. Adam is so good at getting his guests to give a good picture of the subject while staying fun to listen to and easy to understand. Great show!

Turns out Adam's a real human!

In the podcast version of the long-running web and TV series, Adam Connover shows that he's not just a character but a real human being with an infectious curiousity for understanding social issues scientifically. He has a knack for picking experts who will command your attention and asking the same kinds of questions that you will find yourself thinking of. Great series.

Awesome, whether or not you've seen the show

by tdickinson on May 02, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I've only seen a few episodes of the show and I love what I've seen. This podcast works well as a companion piece for the show but it's also a great listen in its own right. I'm glad Adam doesn't assume that any given listener will have seen the relevant episode of the show. The interviews allow for a much deeper dive into some fascinating topics with genuine experts who know their field front to back. Between the experts' knowledge and Adam's curiosity and enthusiasm, it's easy for laypeople who might previously have found the topic uninteresting to get drawn in.

Great show on TruTV

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 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!
