Needs to Pick an Audience

The is a well-produced show with a lot of good information in it. Be aware that it is not really “science news” as most people think of it. Because it is a survey of the week’s issue of Nature, it only covers publication in that journal. Science is not a fast process, so the results of that space mission you heard about last week may not be on this podcast until next year. However, with this podcast, you do you that what you are getting is REAL science. That said, the producers of this show need to figure out their audience. One minute they are explaining a topic in simple, easy-to-understand terms, while the next segment may have words in it some scientists hive never heard. Hopefully they will settle down to a medium level for the science-interested. If they can to that, this will be a solid podcast.


Chris Smith is also the host of the 13 British Counties show, The Naked Scientists, both shows strip the mystery from the science and explains it in terms that is clear and concise to non-scientific audiences. Good show!

Excellent PodCast.

Now this is what podcasting is about. A very slick, well-produced show, which is entertaining as well as informative. The show essentially takes major stories from Nature magazine, and talks with the scientists themselves about their articles. Really very impressed. Perhaps more journals should think of doing something like this…
