Customer Reviews

Some good info, but so far hard to listen to.

Give this one a while to come into its own. Science jumps into the podcasting race with an offering that seems to be similar to Nature's podcast. However, Nature went with a real radio personality as host, where science used members of their staff. Unfortunately, these hosts need some "radio lessons." Their delivery is so obviously scripted that they sometimes sound like people uncomfortably giving speeches. When interviewing, their scripted questions (and sometimes scripted answers -- if the whole thing is scripted, it isn't an interview!) miss opportunities to expand upon really interesting points the guests make. The information is good, but the assumed science literacy of the audience is different from segment to segment. They've only done a couple of shows, but at this point I wouldn't listen regularly. They are a good journal, so with work, they will probably have a good podcast.

News on the Cutting Edge of Science

Kudos to the Science podcast!! The short but interesting segments offer news and expert perspectives on cutting edge research and opinions. I enjoy hearing about the current issues that are mentioned in society, and I hope that they will continue to do segments on "hot topics" in the media.

Excellent science... exceedingly boring delivery

This podcast is an excellent source of scientific information but the hosts and guests often sound like they could be computer generated voices reading off of a cue card. As a scientist, for the sake of science, I hope that this one gets more dynamic to draw people's interest in the material.
