Best science podcast out there

I'm a senior biology student and this podcast is by far my favorite. I can understand why people not in the field may find it to be too techinical but in reality that is my favorite part about the podcast. Most of the other science related podcasts seem to dumb things down or not go into complete detail and that's where Futures in Biotech shines.

Great Guest on First Episode!

Dr. Susan Linquist was great! Her work is fascinating I thougt she did a good job of defining potentially unfamilar terms. (If you thought the first podcast was "too technical" stay away from the Nature podcast too and consider reading a introductory biology text!) Marc need to work on not talking over his guests and not inhaling into the microphone, but these are problems that I am sure will go away as he gains experience.

Incredible inteviews, but host not up to snuff

This podcast consistently gets brilliant, articulate, incredibly interesting guests at its disposal. I find myself re-listening to episodes now and again, and this is the only podcast I've ever done that with. Subscribe and listen – you wilI learn a lot, and not only about biotech. Marc has interviewed physicists, geologists, astronomers, computer scientists, and others, and they have all been inspiring and educational. Unfortunately the one thing working against this podcast is the host. I certainly wouldn't rather a bombastic mainstream-media type, but Marc is too much the opposite. He has a very irritating habit of chortling almost constantly - when he asks a question, when he listens to an answer, simply all the time. Furthermore he has so much trouble formulating his thoughts on the air that listening to him try to put together a question is excruciating. His interjections are either blubbering expressions of amazement at whatever the guest is talking about, or sometimes even go against the natural flow of the interview, both of which the guest must maneuver around. Marc is a smart guy and would be a great host if he: - Listened to a recording of his show and noticed his chortling, then made a concerted effort to not do it in the future. - Let the guests loose by asking broad questions and letting them talk pretty much about whatever they wanted. Despite these problems, I still rate Futures in Biotech with 4 stars simply because of the mind-blowing interviews and subject matter, neither of which I have found anywhere else.
