Finally! A fun and easy to understand science podcast!
Most science podcasts are either really pedantic or really simplistic. That's why I was so THRILLED when Everyday Einstein came along. Dr. Lee Falin has the scientific chops but explains things in such a fun and easy way that I am never left confused or wondering at the end. I learn something new with every podcast and eagerly look for new installments. Thanks Dr. Failn! Keep 'em coming
Incomplete, and wrong.
I was a fan of this podcast until he discussed a topic that I am an expert in. His research was not complete, did not give the full story, and gave a wrong answer. No longer listening.
Great little science podcast. Pretty good at making complex issues simple and understandable. He also does a little skepticism if you're into that kind of thing.
