Um...Like...Ahh...Like...Um...It's Like...A Podcast

Um...like...ahh, this is like...a podcast, ya know, about...like, science? And ahh...the um... hosts...um, might talk about stuff that's like, related to science and stuff?

The preceeding approximates the conversational tone and speed of this podcast. There is some relevant information in each episode, if you can get past the hosts, who sound as if they were still in Middle School, trying to struggle their way through a science presentation that neither one of them are interested in. It's obvious that there is a lack of confidence in presentation skills and knowledge base that each host possesses, plus a disturbing lack of passion or interest in the subject matter under discussion. Perhaps the style of these podcasts are a lame attempt by HowStuffWorks to appeal to a much younger and less conversationally literate demographic. Regardless, this podcast comes across as very amateurish and unprofessional. I am disappointed.

Not too impressed

I love most of the Stuff You Should Know Podcasts, so the bar was set high when I first gave a listen. I'm willing to stick with this one and let the hosts find their legs, but right now it feels like they're trying to get to know each other and test the waters. I want more funny. Also, as a bit of a science buff, I feel underwhelmed by a lot of their topics. But my biggest peeve so far is the pronounciation of "nuclear." I don't expect to hear "nukyulur" in a science podcast.

boring, unorganized, and annoying

I seriously love laughing and learning with "Stuff" podcasts like SYSK, Brain Stuff, Stuff Mom..., but Stuff From the Science Lab is awful! The two hosts are probably really nice people but have no chemistry or charisma. They never seem extensively informed about the topic, they put me to sleep, and the female host REPEATEDLY says, "Okay" so much she reminds me of Joe Pesci in Lethal Weapon. It’s really hard not to zone out while listening, I don’t recommend it. Sorry.
