Customer Reviews

The best science podcast

Every episode is full of fascinating, cutting-edge science from a wide range of fields. It's brilliant. But, there are a lot of podcasts with interesting science in them - what makes this one *special*, and a must-listen for everyone, is host Emily Elias. She skillfully guides us through these topics with great humour, getting the best out of her interview subjects and putting togehter a really unmissable show.

Straight into my top 10

First class -- short, clever, unpredictable -- straight into my top 10 after a few listens.


Fantastic science podcast for all audiences! Must listen!
