Customer Reviews

Radiolab was my "gateway" podcast

Of all the perennial podcasts I am subscribed to now, this remains my favorite. When there's a new episode, I listen to it first. It speaks to the science geek in all of us. It takes no shortcuts in describing a discovery or explaining something well that my [Ivy League] professors could not, while making me roll on the floor with laughter and joy. I highly recommend.

... Slight update: I need to concur with some fellow reviewers that I [really] miss the science focus, but I also gain a ton out of your transition to focusing on the law. As an attorney (don’t judge) whose former career in environmental science [that I miss Every. Single. Day.] (health and water quality, primarily if anyone wonders) its clear to me how the two fields can be fascinating to a single individual (in this case, a team of people, of course).

The stories behind the law are so well done. They bring so much color and context to a subject so familiar to me now (14 years in legal practice) that I am amazed how much I gain out of each episode.

BUT, if I had a say, if not a full focus, maybe at least a sprinkling of science episodes. They give me a reprieve and are a window to my true joy.

Liked this show better when it was about science-y stuff

Seems more politicized than it used to be. I love the new series on conversion therapy—that’s not the political stuff I’m talking about—but there are Notably fewer deep dives into obscure and scientific topics and many more episodes justifying (or attempting to justify) one political idea or another. And the episodes about consent... didn’t love those. My 5yo and I used to listen in the car to fun, audio-artsy stories on bacteria and CRISPR. Not anymore :(
Still have to give four stars for the amazing older episodes.


If I had to pick a single podcast to listen for the rest of my life I’d picked Radiolab
