This podcast is amazing also secret answer E and future topic all the black parts at radioactive and the white people forgot about it an gentrified it anyway
I absolutely love this podcast. I get excited every week and I can’t wait until the next one comes out! I’ve been listening for years and it’s especially fun for long trips in the car or doing homework. I recommend it to everyone I know who listens to podcasts, and I’d love to see them live!
Normally when I learn new things it doesn’t involve quite so much swearing. One of my favorite podcasts. I’m already going back to listen to all the back catalogue.
If you’re already front loaded with a ton of current event podcasts then this is a great one to break up the day. For those that are saying the topics and “facts” are sometimes incorrect then you’re missing the point of the show. Yes it’s a trivia show but it’s also a show about Wikipedia and isn’t meant to be super educational, but really just spark and interest in a topic that you may want to do more research on. There have been a few times where because something the guys talked about has sparked a deeper dive into a topic for me. Don’t take the show too seriously, sit back for some ridiculous entertainment and allow your self to relax a little, it’s all just for fun anyhow, and you may laugh a little.
And a very good podcast. There’s not an episode in this backlog that didn’t make laugh out loud at least once.
Love the podcast fab 5! Their own shows are great and the combination of the group is even better.
I was already a fan of God Awful Movies and Cognitive Dissonance. I love hearing the hosts of both shows come together to riff on a variety of topics. It’s very entertaining!
Hilarious, random, & ridiculous - one of the highlights of my weeks. Not for the sensitive or easily offended. I also really enjoy all the other projects these guys create.
Want to know what happened to Thomas Smith’s feet? Then this is the show for you. I think they need more listeners, so check it out.
These Guys are great. All their podcasts are FIVE STARS. Check out their other podcasts. You’ll be glad you did.
These guys are crude and obnoxious yet I can’t stop listening to them. I just wish they would talk more about how great pugs are and less about the Etruscans. Pugs pugs pugs pugs pugs pugs pugs pugs pugs pugs pugs pugs
This podcast somehow makes me feel smarter and dumber at the same time. I also have so much random information in my head now, like the story of Tarrare, which I tell to pretty much anyone who will listen. Thanks for the conversation starters!
I always LOVE it when the Cognitive Dissonance guys teeam up with the Puzzle in a Storm crew in their podcasts. Doing a podcast with all of them on the regular is a spectacular move. This makes for 5 podcasts between them, and it still leaves me craving more from them. The combination of irreverent humor with super genius intelligence can't be beat.
Already loved these guys on their separate podcasts, so it’s great to listen to them all together. Always hilarious.
Always a blast to listen to! Highly recommend if you want to learn stuff while 5 guys try to be funny.
Nothing like a group of sweet sweet smart@sses! Y’all are great, thanks for the laughs and “informative” wiki to get me through my work mornings!
Each week, our intrepid hosts read a Wikipedia article and pretend they're experts. The results are both informative and laugh out loud funny. It’s like hanging out with friends -and you get all the inside jokes.
Been following all these guys for a while now on other podcasts. When I see this download, I know my hour long commute is going to be good. It’s like being at a dinner listening to a bunch of funny friends opining on anything that falls into the category of “noun”.
I started off listening to their separate podcasts and when they came together for Citation Needed it was a dream come true. It’s absolutely hysterical and I listen to each episode multiple times and still laugh while learning a bit about the most random topics. The editing is amazing, you wouldn’t believe that these guys are in four different states. With Noah’s rage, Tom and Cecil’s sarcastic banter, Heath’s squeaky laugh, and Eli’s Eli-ness you get a podcast that gets funnier with every episode.
So: I am basically the opposite of what a citation needed listener is expected to be - I’m a catholic, mixed race, queer female college student. I truly find these guys absolutely hysterical, and even though they joke a lot about the things I find sacred, that doesn’t mean that those jokes aren’t automatically bad. In fact most of the time: they’re brilliant. I know that they’re going to get heat for their 9/11 truthers episode, and as a New Yorker, I just want to say that it actually helped to make me smile on such a sad day (which is really quite hard to do). Please give them a chance - I subscribe to Citation Needed, the Skepticrat, and God Awful Movies, and each download sparks joy. Keep up the great work, guys!
Eli Bosnick is the Alpha, the Omega. The beginning, and the end. The light in the darkness. He is the way there, and the way home. Heath, Noah, Cecil, and Tom are ok too.
