Customer Reviews


If you are interested in science, this is a good program. Things are thoroughly explaned but never boring. It´s worth trying out.

Great for science-phobes like me!

Thank you for making science so accessible. Love it!

Concise, exciting show

Good science excites the mind. A good science podcast does the same thing.

This is a thumbnail sketch of recent scientific breakthroughs and conundrums which makes the listener say "Hmmmmm. That's funny. . . ." And go find out more. Isaac Asimov would be proud.
