Customer Reviews

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.

Quite nice

As with the other sixty-second (or so) podcasts, this one does a good job of briefly raising scientific issues in terms that lay people can understand. If it's political, so be it - environmental preservation is a political issue, one that political leaders have addressed very poorly in recent years.

Refreshing addition to the Sci-American lineup

I found this podcast to be quite informative and easy to recommend to others. I just hope they continue to add more. Invariably, the podcasts I really like all just fade. Don't stop - keep up the good work!
