Why Search Engines Aren’t Unbiased with Safiya NobleUCLA Professor Safiya Noble joins Adam this week to discuss how racism is expressed through supposedly neutral algorithms, the real-life “Minority Report” technology that’s being used today in our cities, and why we all need to stop implicitly trusting technology just because it uses a lot of math.

I am wildly excited to announce that I am the host and Maze Master of Nickelodeon’s new game show, 💎 The Crystal Maze 💎! I grew up on Nick game shows, so no gig could be cooler to me than leading jumpsuited families through a series of fiendish puzzles and messy challenges. Watch it January 24th at 7pm on Nickelodeon!
New episodes of Adam Ruins Everything are airing now on TruTV, every Tuesday night at 10pm! These eight episodes contain some of the best, most mind-blowing topics we’ve ever done, and the season finale is… well, let’s just say I’m very excited for you to see it. Here’s a clip from tonight’s episode, which features the return of Emily Axford as my co-ruiner:
We’ve been working furiously on this and banking episodes for months, so I’m beyond happy the day has finally arrived that I can talk about it publicly: my new podcast “Factually!” launches next week on the Earwolf network!
Every episode, my research team and I reveal a fascinating new piece of information that will make you think about the world in a brand new way. Then, I sit down with scientists, journalist, and Pulitzer Prize winners to go deep and share the revelatory new perspectives they’ve gained from a lifetime of research and study. If you’re a curious person who never stops asking questions, this show is for you.
The first episode drops May 29th, and features my interview with UCLA law professor Adam Winkler on the surprising history of the Second Amendment. Don’t miss out, subscribe now! Here’s a short list of all the places you can get it:
There are a lot of podcasts in the world, and they all need guests. I am happy to fill that unmet need! Behold, the fruits of my labors:
On Dunktown I talked about the NBA, a sports league I have started fervently following but still know next to nothing about; since the hosts are in the same boat (in fact, that’s the theme of the podcast!), it made for a fun conversation that’s refreshingly different from any sports talk you’ve heard before. Doesn’t hurt that Anastasia and Agata are incredibly funny as well!
On Ariana Lenarsky’s tarot podcast What’s Your Deal, Ariana gave me the most positive tarot reading ever and we talked about how my skepticism about the supernatural interacts with my enjoyment of tarot and astrology as an artistic pursuit.
On Dan Pashman’s the Sporkful, Dan and I talked food — my favorite recipes, my eating habits, and more — and discussed whether or not it’s better to live with our illusions or have them dispelled. (I think you can guess what my take was.) But more importantly — food!
Load ’em up for your next road trip / subway ride / DMV visit / buried-alive-mishap and have a listen!
