"A sativa stonercast, for sure. My brain went off on many o’ tangents while listening. I could only do one or two episodes before I had to give myself a break to digest everything and mull it over properly. But that’s just me!"

"The quality of the host, the guests/experts, the science, and the narratives that bring it all to life. There is not one episode of Hidden Brain that I have not liked, and I have been listening for more than two years (I listen to a lot of great podcasts, but there are few I can say that for). "

"Hidden Brain does a great job highlighting the times when it’s not. Lastly, it’s a really, REALLY professionally made podcast. They add A LOT of audio elements, including original music for every episode, to bring you right in to the world of the topic of the day. Sound effects, interviews, re-enactments, whatever is necessary to tell the story and keep you engaged. Well, IT WORKS."

"A wonderful medley of the latest scientific developments, perspectives and related actionable evidence-based advice, along with fun games, musical interludes and profound insights into both how our individual, as well as collective unconscious minds mould our lives and the world around us. If you are into deepening your scientific understanding of yourself, humankind and the unconscious forces that covertly control the world we live in, as well as discovering possible routes for self-development, all while being thoroughly entertained along the way…you should too!"
