The Science Radio News Feature of the AAAS

Customer Reviews

Professional content & effort

I guess I was so busy listening to the excellent, professional delivery of the science news that I didn't notice anything detrimental about the music. This is a good mix of heavy, serious science for regular people. It's not as esoteric and heavy as Science magazine can be, but it's not as dumbed-down as typical newspaper science coverage. The choices of stories are interesting and topical, as you would expect from one of the leading science societies/magazines.

OK delivery, FANTASTIC content

The music is indeed cheesy and the transitions between segments play horrible tunes as well. Still, it is not annoying by any means, and the content is really great and coming from the AAAS, highly legitimate. I do recommend it, and I'm sure the producers will eventually change the music. -Rudy

I listen to a lot of science podcasts

Science Update Podcast tops the list of my downloads: NOVA|PBS, NOVA Science, Science Magazine, Scientific American...etc. They have short, interesting vignettes, and I could care less about the transition music or the occasional premature cutoff. It's the (insightful and authoritative) content that's important! That being said, some notes on segment transition from NPR might be a nice touch. Keep up the good work!
