    Social media and collective illusion
    Great interview on social media and collective illusion. I hadn’t heard this information before now, and I plan to share it with my high school seniors.

    Adding to my life
    I listen to something you should know because there are interesting guests and helpful information from the host. There is something in every episode that I either did not know before or that expands my knowledge of it. And, Mike, I am still hooked on listening to Something You Should Know!

    As life should be
    Love this podcast, free of all the unnecessary manmade things. Solute from me, who rarely write any reviews
  • WAcartman79
    Reminds me of Paul Harvey
    I realize this is a dated reference, but this podcast is better than the program the late, great Paul Harvey voiced. How? More content and less story. Keep up the good work!

    Thank you so much, Mike
    I always learn something fascinating from this podcast from the fact that we as humans can smell emotions to sleeping tips (ways to fall back to sleep) Anyway, thank you! tAlison Schuback

    Excellent worth listening too.
    Always interesting and informative. Interviewing style makes this podcast a stand out. Being able to ask and move the interview along, making it interesting asking many of the questions those of us listening would like to ask. Selecting guests that have something pertinent to talk about that deal with life not some imaginary existence.

    Made me smarter!
    Love listening to Mike Carruthers’ interviews. His questions are so insightful. I find this podcast interesting and I feel that I’m a little bit smarter after each episode.
  • ElizaCost
    Great show.
    Helen Odeskky is correct. I have had such situations happen 4 times in my life. I wish I would have acted on all of them because it may have saved a life or in one situation, uncovered a body before it could be released into the sea. But I did call the police in one situation and less than a week later I read in the paper that the person I had called about was apprehended in MA for killing a jewelry store owner in SC. Obey your instincts.

    Something You Should Know
    This podcast is the most favorite podcast I listen to when I want peace and an unclouded mind. I have learned so much during the short time I have discovered this gem. And let me tell you the other thing that keeps me coming back: Mike Caruthers’ voice. It is very pleasing to the ear. If you haven’t joined in on this podcast, I urge you to start and hear what I am talking about. You will learn a lot of useful information.

    Learn learn learn
    This pidcast never disappoints! Tidbits of information that prove to be very useful ad I move through life. Love the wide variety of topics but the best part of the show is the questions asked of the experts. I am a big fan of SYSK.

    Superb Podcast
    SYSK by Mike is one of my favorite podcasts. He brings a broad range of topics and guests and asks thought provoking questions. Truly a delight, always learn something new every time I listen. I have tried several other podcasts and for me, this is number 1 in terms of knowledge gathering in a fun way. Keep it up.

    No one believes the earth is flat
    Authoritarian governments put out false conspiracies- like flat earth and other nonsense to devalue the real conspiracies- like 9-11 and the JFK assassination. Hitlers minister of propaganda did the same thing.. you have to bombard the public with nonsense so most people will shut down and not know what to believe.. In the age of propaganda- the only thing we can trust is university studies- academia.. many peer reviewed studies have shown steal buildings can not collapse from fire only.. 9-11 needs a real investigation.. the third tower is the tell, there were explosives already in place.. there was also massive insider trading on 9-11 that was never investigated.

    Always Somwthing
    Such a great all-around podcast. Easy listening and you always learn something interesting. No matter what kind of mood you’re in or if you can’t decide what to listen to, if you pick SYSK, you’ll likely be in a better mood and will be happy with your choice!
  • EmeraldNorth
    This is absolutely my favorite podcast. With every episode I learn new and interesting facts on a large variety of topics from human behavior to animal instincts and the importance of microbes, and so much more. Short vignettes packed full of interesting information. A huge thanks to the team of Something You Should Know.
  • NathanMcSwain1
    Love every Episode
    Amazing Your Show
  • BuddyK352
    Wow, couldn’t DISagree with COPY CAT more! I listen to both shows. With STUFF, you get Josh and Chuck which is great and with SOMETHING you get two guest experts in every episode which brings new voices, opinions and perspective to each topic. Let’s enjoy the SYSKs without the negativity.
  • JosephBass57
    One of my favs

  • curyhsjwjdbwn
    Everything about this is a copy of STUFF You Should Know (the Real SYSK) They even copy SYSK Selects with SYSK Choice.
