Interesting and Entertaining...

It's entertaining and informative and just the right length. Good variety of science information.....and I like the fact it's not just a companion to the magazine articles. It's new information on current events and even some humor.

An Auspicious Start (bird flu pun intended).

A delicate balance between fun and factual, this show still needs tinkering. Yet, it's shakiests points, namely the light tone and attempts at humor are exactly what Sci-Am yearns to embrace to escape it stodgy reputation as a dense, scientists only journal. Let's keep listening to this shake-down cruise batch of casts and hopefully the scales will tip in the right direction.

A Little Less than Droll ...

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, since they've only put out two programs so far ... but as much as I enjoy the magazine, this podcast is far from scintillating. I'll stick it out a few more episodes, though.
