Customer Reviews

Miss the magic of science

Radiolab, I love your Podcasts! Even the new ones, I listen intently as soon as every episode is released.

However, as many have pointed out in the reviews it appears the theme of the podcast has changed and brought on an agenda. I miss the interesting stories on “science and technology in the modern world”.

The way you broke down vast and complex scientific topics was a true art form, and something I have not found from any other podcast. There are hundreds of other interesting podcasts that discuss politics and social behavior in insightful ways, but there just isn’t anything that compares to the way radiolab used to be.

If you continue this new theme as a separate podcast, I will be your first subscriber, just please bring back the old Radiolab!

Liked this show better when it was about science-y stuff

Seems more politicized than it used to be. I love the new series on conversion therapy—that’s not the political stuff I’m talking about—but there are Notably fewer deep dives into obscure and scientific topics and many more episodes justifying (or attempting to justify) one political idea or another. And the episodes about consent... didn’t love those. My 5yo and I used to listen in the car to fun, audio-artsy stories on bacteria and CRISPR. Not anymore :(
Still have to give four stars for the amazing older episodes.


Dead memes!!

I love this podcast!
