Customer Reviews

Very good

Really interesting and well informed.
Just wish Kenneth cukier wouldn’t do that slow outro....

refreshing and well-informed take on current technology stories

This is a good podcast for keeping up to date with tech trends - recommended for anyone with an interest in how scientific advances are likely to change society. My only complaint would be that there are too many adverts.

Very good science talks

Very interesting talks on the world of science. Definitely recommended!
