Science & Politics

Robin continues to do a great job. I see several reviews critical of perceived politicisation of the program content. Surely it is within the purview of a general science program to discuss it’s political place in the world?

One of the world’s best science radio programs

The Science Show has been running since the mid 1970s.

Every week you get an informative and interesting coverage of various scientific topics.

Definitely a great place to separate facts from internet disinformation!

Political Science

Used to be great, but like everything’s on the ABC these days all roads lead to identity politics, great if that’s you thing but if science is your thing then look elsewhere
