Customer Reviews

Still one of the best programs on the air

I love this program. Science *is* agnostic and liberal--that's what allows people to start with questions and end with answers (rather than the other way around). It's a shame some people want to politicize facts. If you want something that affirms your beliefs, gather each Sunday with a group of people who believe what you do. If you want to question your beliefs and learn a little something, listen to this program each Friday. Of course, some of us are comfortable doing both. ;-)

Give us back the individual items!

I HATE the new format of an entire hour. I loved that this was one long radio show that divided things up so I could listen to the sections I was interested in. You can easily get your podcasts to play one after the other, but it's far harder to fast forward past a section you aren't interested in. Very, very disappointed. :(

listen and decide

There are some very odd reviews here concerning Flatow's abilities as a host. I really like the show and download them all. I listen at the gym and on long flights. Flatow is more than good; he's one of the best. Everyone I recommend this show to thinks so too. Granted that opinions vary on anything and everyone, but the nature of the criticisms seems a bit absurd to me. A little like some of the critiques of Darwin on Amazon... if you catch my drift. It's getting increasingly difficult to separate an honest reviewer from a clever religious or political fanatic. I don't pretend that I can. Anyway, I don't know Flatow, but I hope he keeps it up.
