But only wrote this review because 666 reviews is satanic AF!
Podcasts have been my life for over a year now. As much time as I've dedicated to listening to them, I don't take the time to write a review. That stops today. The latest episode of "Mixed Mental" hit me. Hunters emotional cry for science was so touching. He makes this podcast so valuable to me. The funny thing is, I was reading "Straight A Conspiracy" while listening to the earlier episodes and had no idea he was one of the authors until I decided to look them up. Bryan is awesome too. I love his open approach to topics. The deep knowledge these two have on history make this so fun. Keep this up for as long as you are able! Guest suggestions for this show: Robert Greene, David McRaney, and Reggie Watts. I honestly would love to hear Reggie Watts on here the most. Keep up this movement!
Skip the tutor interviews a professor episodes and a tutor pontificates about nonsense shows.
Thank you for letting us listen to you without that hypocritical arrogant d-bag BrAndon!!! Thank you Thank you! ....really, thank you. You're great!
These days this is my go-to podcast and only podcast one needs to listen to. It's a place where I sort of come to learn about the world around me and more importantly to better understand my own thoughts that are byproduct of many moving parts. Hunter & Bryan do a brilliant job in playing off of each other while trying to teach a particular point.
I've always liked Bryan on Joe's podcast. Similar to Joe's podcast, this podcast gives me something to mentally chew on throughout the day. Had no idea it actually existed until it was mentioned on the Joe's Hunter Maats episode, which was a great episode. Love it.
I love Bryan.
A "smarter" in an idiot's dress.
Learn how to organize your thinking with these dudes
The last few episodes without Callen have been a refreshing change of pace. What can we do to institute a permanent ban from his own show?
Mixed Mental Arts with Bryan and Hunter
The best podcast for opening your mind to new ideas. Hunter makes this show great and explain ideas in a entertaining way. Start from the beginning and binge listen, the way you look at culture will never be the same. There are two sides to every opinion, expand your mind!
Simply one of the most interesting, informative and inspiring podcast on so many levels
At first when I started listening to this podcast it was more of a novelty than anything else. I listen to a lot of political and historical commentary from across the political spectrum, and I'm also interested in philosophy and religion as long as it doesn't get too doctrinaire or technical. I enjoyed the banter between the hosts, and the different styles and perspectives they brought. Plus the guests were usually people I'd not heard before. Well, it just keeps getting better and better. I feel like I'm on a journey with these guys, touching bases and comparing notes, exploring a lot of issues in ways that I don't encounter elsewhere. The episode I listened to yesterday, with U of Toronto professor Jordan B. Peterson, was just AMAZING. I can hardly wait until he comes back on the show.Thanks so much, Bryan and Hunter!!
Great show keep them coming!!!
To the baby faced Dough goat sex fiend and the esteemed Harvard book worm butt model, You guys make my day! Love the content of your shows from the beginning to this day. Brian you've changed my outlook on life and brought many a smile to my face as well as tears of laughter over the past years of this show. Much love to you both and keep up the good work.
Bryan and Hunter clearly enjoy talking with each other, but there are more than a few times when they speak over each other and/or the guest. The episode with Joseph Henrich is a good example of the pros and cons of this podcast. Great topic and a great guest, but the cross talk was just too much. Also, hearing Hunter explain Henrich's arguments with Henrich on the show was awkward. If they can work out the host/co-host dynamic a bit more then the show has real potential.
If your mind is as sharp as a marble and you're incredibly naÃ¯ve then this show may be for you.
I am so pumped Bryan is doing his show again! I Love his unique mixture of wit , comedy , or perspective and knowledge. Here's your motto: "The Bryan Callen Show - listen, laugh and learn!"
Long time listener here. The recent change to "MMA for the mind" format is incredible. Please keep it up. You just moved to the top of my list. Thank you Bryan and Hunter.
Just to help bump this podcast up in the ratings above the other podcast with Shaub. I bet he's salty about the rise of Callen's solo podcast
This show keeps getting better and better!! Hunter Maats is a brilliant mind, eloquently describing the nuances and thoughts of many other brilliant minds! And, Callen is an intellectual, thoughtful comic who is a funny Motherf****r! Using his platform to help develop the grey matter of ignorants like myself!
Great subject matter and discussion.
I want to love this full-heartedly (MMA for mind) but when I hear Hunter misunderstand/strawman Harris and Dawkins in unsubstantiated exhales it makes me doubt his intellectual honesty. And make no mistake, I am an idiot, but that's my problem.
This podcast is quickly becoming one of my favorites!These guys are great and the shows are so interesting and diverse. Most excellent!
Shut up! Let the cohost and guest talk sometime. Some episodes are constant unneeded chatter that kills a podcast that could be pretty good. Been listening for about 3 months but now unsubscribed. I can't take it anymore but I will check back in a few months to see if Bryan has changed (wouldn't count on it.)
Funny smarts. Enough said.
Bryan Callen , terrific interviews - Dr. Jared Diamond !Bravo !
I forgot about this podcast but after buying the fighter and the kid 3D package I got the special and loved it. Reminded me about this podcast. Keep up the awesome entertainmentð
I really enjoy this podcast. Bryan is a great comedian, and this podcast is a completely different side of him and I enjoy all his guest always learn something new
He's Ugly dumb etc
I LOVE THIS FORMAT BINGE LISTENING TO THIS..GREAT WAY TO START 2016!!!
As an aspiring writer, this is one of the original Podcasts Iâd go to, to listen to conversations with Authors and creative types. Bryan Callenâs objective, worldly perspective is balanced out palatably with his comedic wit. The accompanying genius of Hunter Maats who knows how to break things down into digestible, understandable bite-sized bits of knowledge akin to Neil deGrasse Tyson, is yet another great reason to listen. Donât let this insightful gem become the red-headed stepchild of the Bryan Callen Podcast portfolio.Tony Ortiz of the Spun Today Podcast
So glad these two are back, I enjoyed Bryans special "Man class" and found his podcast soon aferwards. It has changed so much over that time, and has grown to an incredible funny and thoughtful podcast with Mr Hunter Maats. This podcast was the reason I found JRE! My favorite episodes of the BCS so far are Jared Diamond and all 5 of the episodes with Vanessa Tyson. The books recommended have changed my perspective on many topics, the guests are always fabulous. Only CON of this amazing podcast is....Bryan stop trying to be ON all the time, let your esteemed guests talk. If we want to listen to a podcast where everyone talks over each other we would listen to FATK. I learn as much listening to these two funny and smart yahoos as I do on any RadioLab podcast, Love the BCS!
I is a nice change on going from you other podcast âThe Meatball and The Kid.âDante Ganzini
Welcome back. You were missed...
Made me want to start reading and exploring new ideas. It's hard to find someone who is smart and can communicate there ideas clearly and in an entertaining way.
One of my all time favorite podcats but he doesn't do it any more. Some of the greatest ideas are stuck in books.
What a great informative show w/o being heavy handed...where are the new casts???
This Podcast is one of my favorites. These guys are talking about really big ideas. I really really hope Bryan and Hunter record new episodes.
Great podcast! Has been a joy to listen to and it never gets old. Thank you Bryan and Hunter so much for taking your time to share with us and tech us new things about the world around us.
Bryan Callen almost always has an interesting guest, and allows that guest to speak. You canât ask for much more.
Hey man! Where'd you go? Somebodies been a busy little beaver haven't you?This is one of my top 3 fav podcasts and guess what? You're also on the other 2 so you're welcome. Best fan ever right here buddy. We need us some more Bryan Callen! Get Onnit! (I did it again)
This show is beyond intelligent relative to shows out there. Bryan and hunter are a perfect duo, and they have some cream of the crop guests on that guarantee to make you smarter. Not to mention laugh a bit. This is my favorite podcast show overall. Especially enjoyed the podcast with Howard and howie Buffett. And all the ones with michael callen (Bryan's super smart and wise dad) on.
Bryan this is a great show. Amazing guests and quality discussion. But there hasn't been a podcast since February!!Where are you!? Come back!!
