This is an amazing daily science podcast that fits even the tightest schedule. We love using this in our family homeschool as a break from book learning. Thanks for keeping us up to date with fun science news!

For [email protected]#ks sake. You don't know anything and constantly contradict yourself regarding covid. Loved this podcast until it became the covid show. Byeeee

I appreciate you... But this is barely a science podcast. Used to talk about science, but most episodes are now about social science, race relations and gender, of which there are dozens already by NPR.

It was once a great podcast, but recently it has gone totally downhill, not providing a comprehensive view for an issue and it has also veered off topic - focusing on non-science things such as race relations. If it doesn't get better, I'll unsubscribe. Check out Science VS from Gimlet instead

Probably my favorite science podcast! They never talk over my head regardless of the subject. I've learned so much. And Maddie and Emily's enthusiasm is so infectious!

A FANTASTIC podcast with an engaging host. Great for snippets of fascinating science to either entertain you or serve as a launching off point for further discussion.
