The moments of science are great, but the bumpers and ads are annoying and the 'banter' of the speakers is terrible. Forget the acting - it SUCKS. Just give the facts.
never be short on conversation starters...
These are the perfect amount of information and always fascinating enough to give you an endless supply of "interesting tidbits" to start an interesting conversation at all those boring holiday office parties. hooray for moment of science! (i think the little conversations are a little awkward sometimes too, but i like them nonetheless).
A moment of interesting facts.
Great little show, always something interesting. Similar to "Scientific Americans 60 Second Science" podcast which I also listen too. Keep up the good work!
