    Third party summations
    This is a dangerous podcast. It’s two people taking 3rd party interpretations of some of other person that they’ve decided to speak down about. I listened to the Bashar episode. And they totally misquoted him in every kneecap shot they chose to take. This is a gross representation of how humans have the capacity to take cheap shots at others to feel like they have a higher authority to seek control. It’s super fear based, and is not beneficial at all. This is a crass, mean spirited, source of “entertainment.” Inaccurate, misquoted information, that was followed up with making fun of someone for the sake of claiming to know better than others. Smh. Seriously, Misguided. For example, there are 5 “rules” and she misrepresented the first 3 rules. Not worth putting energy into.

    One of my absolute favorites
    I’ve been listening for at least 5 years, if not longer. Ross & Carrie are brilliant and very funny. Even with the depth and difficulty of some of the topics they cover this is one of my comfort shows (and I’ve listened through it at least 3 times). If you haven’t already tried it out I highly recommend it.

    Ross and Carrie are just straight up fun to listen to. They make me laugh, they make me think. This podcast has made me a better person.

    Well done journalism with mean spirited intent at times
    I listened to this show for a year or two and decided it wasn’t for me. The journalism and storytelling are great. What bothered me was how the premise was to secretly infiltrate whatever group was involved, gain their trust, then verbally kneecap them with a crow bar for the sake of laughs and self righteousness. It feels like listening to a bully tell their life story. I’m pro-science and nonreligious, but the way this show is conducted just feels mean-spirited and crass. Do better.

    This show is not made of the reproductive goo of goats.

    Favorite podcast
    I love how their investigations are presented like stories, not like reports. Take the lower reviews with a grain of salt: They’re generally split 50/50 between zealots of whatever Ross and Carrie just criticized and people who hate Carrie for no reason (sexism, probably). If you’re looking for an extensive experiment and presentation, this isn’t the podcast for you. But if you want some friends who tell you all about the wacky thing they tried out last Thursday, this is the perfect fit.

    a smug MORMON?! 😂
    Happened upon an episode about Bashar wherein the hosts begin by getting the timeline of Darryl Anka’s life WAY off (missing everything from the 1970s). Then every other detail is skewed through a lens that *assumes* this must all be a made-up capitalist scheme. Meanwhile one of the hosts is MORMON. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 Enough said!

    Love Ross and Carrie
    I love Ross and Carrie sooo much! I really enjoy hearing them bring up old jokes, my ears perk up whenever I hear a pyramid mentioned just waiting for the stairs reference. They always make me laugh and it’s a topic I love. MaxFun is a blessing!

    Late to the party
    I’m still catching up on the back catalog, but so far I love it. OWL!

    Low hanging fruit
    I listened to only one show, so please take my comments within that context, but this is low level sneering. Have these guys tackled the problem of consciousness—and it’s a HUGE problem for science? Is there a difference between mind and brain? Is mind a part of the ground of reality? If it is, if there’s one mind we all partake of, we’re suddenly in some interesting territory that isn’t addressed by literal treatments of myth. (I’m sneering now.) Have these guys ever discussed the unconscious, archetypes, or the varieties of religious experience? Do they know anything about William James, Carl Jung, or Ken Wilber? This show is great for bias confirmation, but it picks fights with lightweights…

    Love it!
    As a forensic scientist, it was interesting, and sometimes frustrating, to listen to the episode of the forensic scientist on Noah’s ark. Like my mother told a priest once, “she’s a scientist so she’s going to need more proof than that”. Keep up the great work, Ross and Carrie! I love your chemistry and energy!

    Great show about Noah’s ark

    Thoughtful and fun
    ONRAC is one of my favorite podcasts to listen to and to recommend. They contain multitudes as people. First off, they are such kind, compassionate, and thoughtful people. They do not sneer at the people involved in their investigations, ever. It is top-form for skeptically-minded people. Despite their kindness, the journalism from Carrie pulls no punches. They have had some really amazing moments of backing charlatans into corners, and she plays it absolutely flawlessly. Ross brings a level of attention to detail that creates a faithful record of the investigation. Also, Carrie has been getting pretty blue with her humor lately, which comes as a hilarious surprise relative to the rest of the tone of the show 😂.

    stop screaming
    please, carrie, you stress me out. some of the episodes are duds but a lot of them are interesting! i like this podcast overall. i hate the theme song. it’s so short it doesn’t matter and is easily skipped but it is like nails on a chalkboard to me.

    People believe weird things!
    Everyone believes weird things, Carrie and Ross are here to help us understand what and why and how we get into these weird belief systems by going there themselves. Following this show has helped me to see and examine the weird stuff I believe and to be more compassionate to other folks who believe different weird things.
  • Ruuyn
    Wholesome investigations!
    As someone who wants to understand how people from other worldviews rationalize their conclusions (to the point of joining flat earth debate groups), these two are so refreshing to hear! They are so genuine about what they like and appreciate from their experiences, and approach everything from a non-confrontational standpoint, while still looking at everything with a critical eye and pointing out what doesn’t match the overwhelming body of evidence that science has determined and why. Also, the way that they make honest attempts to recognize that not everyone will be familiar with even the most common of Religious stories is so wonderful.

    kindred spirits, feels like home
    I have been listening to this podcast for years, and just felt the need to express how much I love it. I grew up as an evangelical Christian and have been continuously deconstructing my faith. Ross and Carrie have helped me on this journey, and have also helped me to remember my experience with the church both critically and fondly. Also they love Jars of Clay and so do I. I feel like we could be friends and I love going on all these adventures with them via this podcast. They are so knowledgeable, brilliant, and funny. I love love love this show!

    These two people will gamely try out your weird thing.
    That's what makes this show so fun to listen to. Do they really think that taking a coffee enema will detoxify them? Maybe not, but they will show up and try the thing, and ask questions, and then talk about their experiences. The interview episodes are really interesting as well; they have hosted flat-earth believers, a guy who wants us all to drink our urine, a guy who is sure that owls and aliens are connected to each other, and several people who have left high-pressure religious groups. Also interviews with an expert on anger (Carol Tavris). Carrie's skill at asking important questions is impressive to me. The variety here is great. I recommend the Scientology series, the UFO conferences, holotropic breathing, and the Wim Hof episodes. The (ongoing) series, where Ross attended a homeschooling conference hosted by the Ark Encounter, is also fascinating. Basically, you can scroll through recent episodes until something catches your interest, it'll probably be good. Also, these guys come across as pretty caring and fun people. I enjoy their willingness to try an astonishing variety of strange things (weird diets, ayahuasca, alternative medicines, homeopathy, and lots of religions). They give things a pretty fair shake -- like if Scientology had turned out to be the secret to living a happy life, I think they would've noticed, and taken notes so they could tell us about it later. I recommend this show.

    Here to brag
    Just here to say how throughly I enjoy the show but mostly to brag about the fact that my birthday is also October 23, the same as the day of creation they espoused at the ark theme park. It really makes sense now. Thanks guys!

    and I love this podcast.
  • Pdlm99
    even as a leftist...
    i think carrie's contempt for religion gets frustrating to listen to. i want to like this podcast because i find it interesting, but they're just so dismissive of any belief that isnt rigorously scientific (in a way that gets annoying and holier-than-thou). and i think it's a little lazy to lump everything religious together -- like yeah some religious stories are absurd and unscientific, but the stories alone aren't harming people. conspiracy theories, extremism, and hate are, so that's what you should be focusing on
  • amehex
    Just a delight
    The thing about Ross and Carrie that makes this podcast work so well is that they just have such an affable chemistry that is so fun to listen to. The subject matter is often mildly interesting to me, but as a skeptic and atheist I more just find it so lovely to hear these warm-hearted, generous, and critical takes on kooky worlds I don’t take part in. Anyone who doesn’t like this podcast is not someone I want to hang out with.

    Proven Results
    I had been listening for 7 years before doing ayahuasca with Carrie and dozens of strangers and then writing an extemporaneous haiku about a haunted doll with mind powers. Two days later my boyfriend of 13 years proposed. Coincidence?! Definitely not. Ross and Carrie: guaranteed to make your goals come true for just a few small payments of…
  • MadamMelonMeow
    Always a perfect podcast
    Been listening since 2014, listened to every episode on backlog that year and each new episode since. Their dedication and professionalism when researching and discussing these topics is unmatched. Edit: its 2022, and my review is the same. Amazing.
  • natalienumbers
    Cloyingly cutesy, cliché bullshirt
    We tried to listen to one episode on a topic we were interested in, and instead of getting to the point ever we sat there and listened for 20 minutes learning about their SAT scores, when they left for their road trip, and the singular funny joke about their gay child friend. Defeated, we had to turn it off because it made us hate the Integratron just knowing that they had been there.
  • limp_triscuit
    What will they do next?
    Whatever it is, with Ross & Carrie it’ll be a treat
  • B. McAlister
    It’s Kind of a Great Complement to Therapy and Deconstruction
    As someone who also deconstructed faith and left the church, I wish I could be as light hearted, mellow, and generous as Ross and Carrie 🫠 The show is helping me adopt a more amused, but no less rational, perspective when confronted by bizarre beliefs (but first, let me process some trauma, k).

    So funny I die
    Their show is so funny. I finished episode 1-139 in a month

    Everybody loves to go to the pool!
    This show, just like Satan, has been my friend and constant companion for many years now. I’m so grateful for the sharing of knowledge, joy, and curiosity that this show has provided. Thank you Ross and Carrie! :)

  • ReadMoreFeministBooks
    Great Show
    Most of the negative reviews I have been reading about ONRAC are critizing Carrie for being disrespectful or not having a degree (which she has a master’s degree). To those reviews, first of all check your sexism at the door. Secondly, Carrie has so much grace and patience when interviewing people. I could never do that. Honestly, just wanted to leave this review to boost this podcast. Love it, keep doing what you are doing Ross and Carrie.
  • Txkeleieio
    So entertaining!!
    Love, love, love your show!! So entertaining and I have learned about all of these crazy cults and fringe science theories that I am fascinated with. As a side note I was googling Amazing Facts while I listened to you episodes and now their site keeps appearing on my frequently visited sites list on my iPhone, even after deleting it several times!! What the heck?? 😂
  • stepintothefreezer
    Self-righteous religious zealots
    When are you going to investigate and mock your religion (Scientism)?
  • CatchingZs
    Learn about everything from SCIENTOLOGY to SALT CAVES! This show kept me sane when my daughter and I had to drive from Monterey to Tucson and back 3 times in six weeks. Don’t join a cult, let Ross and Carrie do it for you!! Happy birthday Carrie!!
  • Weckiai
    Charming and worthwhile
    A very funny and important podcast. Anti science groups and individuals are really negatively impacting our lives, and our hosts debunk compassionately but steadfastly. My only complaint is that they should go more into the cultural appropriation within crunchy/spiritual spaces as a form of harm these groups perpetuate ideally inviting on a guest of the culture being appropriated whenever possible
  • birdbyrdberd
    My favorite show
    Ross & Carrie dive into the most extreme, fringe beliefs without ever being condescending or mean-spirited. They’ve really made me approach people spreading disinformation in a different way. This show has made me a better person!
  • Bfetty8
    Extremely funny, extremely educational, extremely good
    I finally started Oh No after being a loyal McElroy/Max Fun listener for 4 years. This pod is right up my alley and I’m so sad I waited so long. The investigations Ross and Carrie put together are thoughtful, incredibly honest and seem more fair than any other “undercover” journalism I’ve been exposed to. Their banter feels so natural and it’s like I’m hanging with my friends talking about E meters. Highly recommended pod for entertainment and thought provoking content.
  • AwesomeEndsInMe
    Educational and Fun
    Ross and Carrie always share so much knowledge during their investigations. Just random tidbits here and there. They’re so fun. I do feel like there are times it would be hard to listen if I was a follower of these beliefs. It can border on mockery.
  • Lil H E
    Funny, Refreshing & Increasingly Relevant!
    If you’ve ever had a coworker that regales you with stories of the hollow earth, or you didn’t know what to say to a relative that just REALLY wants you to buy their crystal foot pads— this is the podcast for you. I’ve been listening for 7+ years, but after 2020, Oh No! Ross and Carrie became my most listened to podcast, and a huge comfort in my daily life. With the increasingly worrying public attitude to truth and science, ONRAC is a soothing hot drink of relief. Yes, the world is full of wild ideas, but there are fun/fascinating parts to be found in them too! The empathy, curiosity, and wry humor that Ross and Carrie bring to their investigations inspires me to approach my life the same way. (And I just wanna say Carrie’s interviewing skills are out of this world! I used to skip the interview episodes because they gave me the willies, but Carrie’s genuine -yet unflinching- approach makes them some of my favorites now!)

    A Must Listen
    I wish everyone would listen to Oh No! It has actually had a huge impact on my life. As Ross and Carrie investigate religions, pseudoscience claims, conspiracy theories, and spiritual leaders, we learn that there are lots of similarities between these types of communities. Ross and Carrie expose how these groups use the same tactics over and over again to take advantage of people’s emotions and weakness and exploit them for money. And they do all this while making you laugh and taking you along for the ride! I’m so glad this podcast exists! Especially in a sea of podcasts with no backbone, it’s a rare find!
  • Shanedawsonroks
    My Fav Show!
    My absolute favorite show. Ross and Carrie are informative, funny, and comforting! I always feel like I’m on the investigations right along side them both :)
  • geridocq
    Wonderful podcast and hosts!
    There is something soothing about listening to Ross and Carrie explore and endure oddities of spiritual life in America. They are excellent journalists and storytellers, and approach each subject with humility while maintaining a sense of humor. Their pragmatism and grounding in reality has been a comfort during unsettling times. And I will never look at OWLS the same way again.
  • Rlbsunshine
    Thank you Ross and Carrie :)
    This is my new favorite podcast! I’m definitely going to become a sponsor next max fun drive
