Foul-mouthed Intelligentsia

The best podcast I've ever heard! Cecil and Tom deconstruct societal, cultural, political and religious mores and issues with sharp tongues and snark, but keep everything in perspective of the sane. I never miss an episode. Highly recommend to critical thinkers.

Pretty good

Enjoyed it so far.

Awesome podcast!

This is my favorite podcast- these guys sometimes sound like drive-time disc jockeys, but that's okay because they're brilliantly funny. Listening to this podcast is like a long and satisfying, cathartic belch for skeptics and freethinkers who occasionally need relief from the relentless dogmatic nonsense we are otherwise surrounded by.

Funny stuff right here.

Started listening fairly recently and I love this podcast. It's vulgar and humorous which is what I look for in a podcast. If you are easily offended this may not be for you; otherwise, LISTEN TO IT!

My new favourite

I couldn't be happier now that I've found Cognitive Dissonance. With the loss of Irreligiospohy, it was almost impossible to find a skeptical/ atheist podcast that's hilarioous and informative. Keep up the laughter (even at your own jokes), its infectious! cheers from Canada

Hilarious and irreverent

If the religiosity of politics drives you crazy this podcast can help you regain a little sanity.

Hilarious Podcast

This is the best podcast I've heard, period. Even though I haven't got the foggiest about U.S politics or bat-shit crazy religion, it's still a hoot to listen to. The same goes for their older podcast series 'Everyone's A Critic.'

Great show, very funny and insightful. Great to hear a couple of articulate guys saying much less incoherently what I often find myself ranting at the TV news.

Great show

Tom and Cecil are hilarious. I love this show, I love their attitudes and I love they are male feminists! Plus they manage to use the word "fuck" in almost every sentence... a characteristic I look forward to finding.

Love 'em, love 'em, love 'em! They totally make my day! If you're an atheist, skeptic, agnostic, or anywhere in between - you have got to listen to these dudes! They are hilarious!

Informative and funny

I love listening to this show! It brings attention to issues and events in the news and casts them in bright, atheistic light that showcases the funny in the situation. I look forward to more pod casts, will continue to listen. Go skeptics!

Love-Stalking

I fucking love this podcast. Just came across it and already obscenely hooked. If I didn't think the hosts were probably ugly black guys, I would stalk them and have their man-babies without them knowingcrazy ass bunny-boiler style. That's how absurdly awesome this podcast is. If I had friends, I would want them to be like Tom and Cecil (what the fuck kind of name is Cecil?).
