Serious Inquiries Only

Serious Inquiries Only


Join Thomas for some critical thinking on questions of science, philosophy, skepticism and politics. These serious topics are discussed with some serious guests, but in an entertaining and engaging way! This is not your typical interview podcast; it’s a friendly dialogue, conducted thoughtfully and with plenty of humor. It’s Serious Inquiries Only; but like, not boring or anything.
