Sounds like a good idea, and I like the hype, but it just doesn't work. I've tried listening to three different ones now, and couldn't make it more than halfway on one of them. Wow. The folks behind this should take some time to listen to audio-only stuff and figure it out first.
Could have been a great podcast
Wastes too much time on crappy intro music and stupid, repetitive chit-chat. Leave the housekeeping info to the podcast notes, dammit, and stop wasting everyone's time.
Leo is great, Kiki not so much
I agree with another reviewer. This podcast sounds great in theory however it was truly pathetic in reality. She may have a PhD in neurophysiology but I don't think it helps the podcasts at all. Leo is a much better interviewer and seems to be the "straight" guy to Kiki's hairbrained comments and questions. If you are interested in science-related podcasts, check out the Scientific American podcasts and the NYTimes Science podcast. They are very well done.
