The original science podcast

These guys were podcasting before podcasting was cool, and haven’t missed a beat! They bring an hour+ of sciency goodness every week. They sometimes have interviews with special guests and respond to their fans (TWIS minions). Their three person team has debate, brings different perspectives, and keeps it real.

The male cohost is TERRIBLE.

One, 2 hours is too much for a weekly podcast. I don’t listen as often as I’d like because of this. 90 minutes would be much easier to grasp but 60 would be ideal.

But what TRULY takes the stars off is the dude. Holy mother of all things science is he terrible. His voice is grating, he mansplains and over talks the female cohosts, he thinks he’s hilarious and you can sense the irritation in the other hosts voices. Can him and I’d give this another star for sure. He is just AWFUL. 🤢 it’s like 2 hours of drunk uncle from SNL.
