Customer Reviews

podcasts do not download

none of your 60 second podcasts will download onto itunes, even after reinstallilng itunes and the podcasts.

Not 60 Seconds?

Ok, why is this called 60 second Earth if it's not 60 seconds?..... I'll give it a 5 just because I'm in a good mood.

Agenda Science

A political, not science, commentary by the podcaster. So far, not so good. Unlike the other 60 Second Science podcasts from Scientific American, this did a poor job in examining either the scientic issues or political issues at stake in the upcoming election.
