Customer Reviews

Show is great, ads are jarring

As a fan of AIR, I was really excited about this podcast. The content is great, and delivered in the appropriate manner. The ads, however, are much louder than the narration of the stories, leaving me diving for the volume control whenever they come on between articles.

Quit Listening

Listened to all of the episodes until he decided to tweet about politics. If the twitter account is not the show why have a twitter account for the show? But am better for moving, bye.

Educational & Amusing

Very enjoyable discussion of research that encourages thought.
