Fiona Sturges - Financial Times - May 12, 2017

"There’s no script, which means the conversation is apt to meander and tail off, which can make for frustrating listening at times. But while there’s nothing polished about Stuff You Should Know, there is a reason why it has survived so long. In terms of wealth and depth of knowledge, it’s up there with the best."

Dr James Heather - Bio News - Feb 15, 2016

"Josh and Chuck cover a lot of ground, skimming across a number of the major highlights, in keeping with their mission to give people a decent grounding in a given topic. What's more, they do so in a very enjoyable way; they have an engaging, easy rapport and their frank and casual presentation style makes for enjoyable and digestible listening. However there are a few downsides to this easy-going approach. With the pub-chat vibe they have cultivated, the largest problem is one of accuracy. As neither host is a necessarily an expert in the topics they discuss, and with at least one of them (I'm looking at you, Chuck) not always being that familiar with the details of the story at hand, I certainly caught a few inaccuracies and exaggerations that slipped through."

"Devastating. Disappointing that we did not learn this in our schools. In a time where Black Lives Matter protests are at the highest we start learning more about the struggle of Black people and the injustices with greater detail. Good lesson and I'm glad they talked about it. "
