Customer Reviews

Love this show!

I routinely listen to two science podcasts: Quirks & Quarks and Science Friday. Both are good but they each have different strengths and weaknesses. Quirks & Quark's Bob McDonald is a more likeable host as he is funnier and is nicer to the guests. Science Friday's Ira Flatlow at times can be almost rude to a guest he doesn't agree with and can cut guests off. Science Friday's topics can be more controversial and political but are very timely and pertinent. Quirks & Quarks has more topics relating to nature/ zoology. At first glance, I think I will be uninterested in a topic and be pleasantly suprised after listening. If you can listen to two science podcasts, these two are good choices as topics tend not to overlap and they have a different styles. I have never had iPod problems with this show.


I've checked out a few sciencecasts,and this is the best! Bob covers major scientific news as well as answereing questions about the how and why of everyday science all around us. Things you probably wonder 'aboot' yourself.

A little Canadian.

This is one of the very first pod casts I have ever subscribed to and it remains one of my favorite. The information presented is both enjoyable and easy to understand despite my lack of any formal science education.
