Best podcast on the planet

Been listening to Dr Karl & Dr Rhod on BBC radio 5 live since early 2000 whilst still in Scotland. Time slot in the middle of the night when broadcast was a great challenge but having moved to Australia in 2004 and with the wonder of technology I can know enjoy this excellent show any time day or night. I look forward to this every week. This is such an insightful show and Dr Karl’s knowledge and problem solving and explanations has changed the way I think about my areas of life. Dr Rhod is also an equal partner and ringmaster and keeps things flowing nicely without breaking the flow of information. This should be required listening for anyone interested in getting an answer in depth to any question. Sadly this doesn’t happen enough in broadcasting when consulting experts and then giving them 20 seconds to answer before interrupting. This show is simply brilliant.
