60-Second Science is the First Thing I Listen To Every Morning
60-Second Science is the first thing I listen to every morning because it reminds me of how wonderful the world is. There is so much out there to explore, and 60SS takes me there. I feel like a kid again discovering the world
Perpetuates the Religion vs. Science Stigma
I’ve really enjoyed this podcast when it sticks to science. However, like I.D. and Richard Dawkins it occasionally gets into the pseudo science of applying science to religion. Because god is not falsifiable, he/she can not be addressed by science. By doing this, 60 Second Science only alienates the religious majority to important scientific issues like conservation. With only 60 seconds, I would much prefer an unbiased review of the wonderful advancements of science instead of unfounded Religion/Science philosophical disputes. I’ll find a “60 Second Philosophy” podcast if I want that.
Great podcast and have listened for years. None of the 60-Second podcasts have downloaded to my iTunes in the past week. Has there been a format change? Please fix them.
