Dr Karl - science treasure

Dr Karl is the best science communicator in the world. Easy to understand, witty, explains well, spells new and difficult scientific terms with etymology. Asks the interviewee to repeat or explain again difficult or new concepts for the audience to understand it thoroughly. Dr Karl adds his lateral thinking to the subject matter increasing the value of the interview.

Great listening any podcast of Dr Karl
