Customer Reviews

Chlorophyll? More like Borophyll!

I'm a botanist and this podcast is painful. I was so excited to see another science-based plant podcast hitting the market but WOW this has to be the most boring podcast I have ever listened to. This is not a celebration of plants, it is a humdrum look at academic life. Way to make science and plants seem boring. Listeners shouldn't waste the space on their device.

The best plant-focused podcast

Quirky, fun and informative

Finally a plant biology related podcast!

This is a great podcast that highlights what goes on in the life and experiences of PIs. Great for young scientists as well as a general audience. It's also related to plant biology which is quite undervalued in Biology.
