Hidden Brain Reviews
I’ve been listening to Hidden Brain for a while. The episodes always stick with me for months. Like the one about the left and right side of our brains. The most recent one “Heat of the moment” was really fascinating. I did know and yet I didn’t know how intense situations make us act so differently than our rational self. I’ve found that laughter helps keep a mind clear, even when it’s not really appropriate. Thanks Hidden Brain. I love what y’all do.

I subscribe to several different programs and this is by far my favorite podcast. I look forward to every episode each week, and usually listen the day it’s released. I only wish they produced MORE frequently and didn’t do repeats. I’ve heard every episode available on Apple podcasts!
This episode failed to address the underlying cause of this data, which can be summed up in two words: systemic racism. Until we as a society are able to change how people of color are viewed in the US, the status quo will continue.
I love this show- so thoughtful but please no more of the repeat episodes. I stopped listening for a while because it seemed I was only finding old podcasts I’d heard before but then the ventilator.....!
I really enjoy the episodes and content but there are so many repeat episodes. I would have a different title for them just to organize new and old episodes and to let listeners know if an episode has previously been published.
‘The Ventilator’ episode is brutal. Such a powerful, heartbreaking report. Amazing work to everyone involved.
I have not heard a new episode for a long time. What’s up?
What an interesting podcast-do smart and thoughtful... so why is it underwritten by an oil company which is currently being sued by 2 states for lying about its known effect on climate change? Carbon capture??? This is not even something that works! Seriously, this is a company that has put its money into fossil fuels for decades and continues to do so! Try comparing the money they are currently spending on carbon capture with what they are spending on fossil fuel extraction. Being underwritten by this company undermines the integrity of your show.

My favourite podcast!
After a year since getting into many podcasts, this is probably my favourite.
I finally had a chance to plow through the entire catalogue of Hidden Brain episodes and am finally up to date. Very engaging.
Very insightful stories that are engaging and you can tell the time and effort put into investigating each episode. Keep it up!
Every episode is unique and thought provoking, thank you Shankar and team
Hidden Brain is a throughly refreshing, thoughtful, and insightful podcast.
Chuck Norris went cliff diving off the coast of Sumatra in 2004. The rest is history.
I always learn something. Shankir’s voice is nice to listen to. Nice that they interview various people. I wait for the next episode to be made each time.
Smart, thought provoking, well researched and well referenced. Love love love it
I love this podcast. It gives you different perspectives to life.
This podcast is new but truly worth adding to your podcast regular listen list. After discovering it only a few days ago I have listened to all the previous episodes and look forward to a new one. Well produced, interested and really informative! Great work. Love the podcast.
Oh I love this warm friendly and accessible presented in a humble manor. Refreshing in the often very dogmatic world of podcasts out there Amanda blue mountains Australia
Great content hidden behind overly dumb presentation. Segment called "stopwatch science" aims to showcase interesting research in rapid-fire format. It ends up being a poor imitator of QI.
I love everything about this podcast. Thought-provoking. Inspiring. Everything down to the last detail (even the sound effects) make it a pleasant listen. GB
Have been listening to your show for years. Was absolutely disgusted by the message in your episode about the kid from Harvard that got caught being horrible. Unsubscribe and never to return. I get that you were trying to come at it from a different perspective... to get us to see how you could make a mistake and blah blah blah. No. I’m sorry. You gave this pathetic kid a platform he didn’t deserve. GB
I’m an easy customer and have really enjoyed a few episodes however your most recent episode sets a disappointing tone. Respect had been lost. GB
Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending.
