Great fish podcast!
I stumbled across this gem recently while searching to fill the need for more science podcasts. I like their approach--breaking up the podcast into different segments with a featured fish in the middle makes it much more digestible. They've hit a good balance between fun and informative as well. I've recommended it to non-sciencey friends, and they seem to enjoy it as well. My only criticism that would bring it up to from four stars to five, is that sometimes it is a bit confusing to distinguish who is talking. They might solve this by having each of the participants introduce themselves instead of having the host do it, maybe with a reminder introduction halfway through? Great job, and keep it up!
This is an awesome podcast! I enjoy listening to these on my daily commute to work. Witty, humorous, and full of interesting info. I highly recommend this to everyone!
A animal-based science podcast... WIN!
There are many great science podcasts out there, but very few of them are specific about evolutionary biology of organisms, so it's great to see a podcast like this on iTunes! Very cool and interesting facts about fishes, and a great way to brush up on your "fishy" knowledge. Loved the episode where they talk about how clownfish would really behave if "Finding Nemo" was real...kinda disturbing, but cool!
