I've been living and teaching in Mexico so the good ol CBC has been a little bit hard to come by...or is it? Apparently not! Finding the Quirks & Quarks podcast was like fining gold, I cannot tell you how good of a show this is and how great it is to be able to turn my ipod on each Saturday, go for a walk through Mexico and listen to some of the best programming available Great job Bob and the CBC crew!
Ya gotta see this guy!
I have been a fan of Quirks & Quarks for years. This guy makes science interesting and fun. He takes interesting science ideas and makes them easily absorbed, he takes complex ideas and gets the right people to explain them and asks the right questions to give meaning to the concepts expressed.
Great science podcast!
I listened to the other science podcasts on iTunes but they don't come close to being as interesting, entertaining and fun as this one from CBC Radio. The host, Bob MacDonald, keeps asking the same kind of questions to the science experts that I would be asking myself. Great show!
