very interesting but don't forget to describe what's going on
this is a very good podcast.
I like the science combined with sports which is a lot of fun.
I do wish that they would describe the "play "before the analyze it.
They seem to think that I was watching the television when the "catch " was done.
I have no idea with that catch look like.
It seems that they're forcing the Science and topics a little bit but truthfully it is a fun podcast and very interesting.
Not for kids
Just as I was ready to share this great mix of sports and science, the subject turns to boobs, nipples and gambling. In a day when we encourage girls and underprivileged students to believe they have a place in the science community, why is such thoughtless content included?? Dr. Neil, what gives?
Geeks and Jocks together on one podcast? What a time to be alive! I cannot wait for my two worlds to collide on this podcast!
