Life Scientist award for work on microbes and their role in regulating climate plus Varroa mites – a positive for native bees?
The mixing of arts and politics only serves to underline the presenter’s skill and the central place science occupies in our broader world. Has been covering global warming for 50+ years. Doesn’t treat you like an idiot. Wonderful broad science show with great pieces on wildlife, physics, and advances in medical technology. Outstanding presenter is one of the best interviewers on all radio.
Best Science Show
Have listened to Robbin for many many years and find this show informative and topical. It’s helped me keep abreast of global trends as well highlighting science in Australia. A magnificent show of cultural significance to Australia
Outstanding pedigree, refocus overdue
Having listened to the science show since a child, first on Radio National and more recently via podcast. I am unsubscribing in the hope that it re-focuses. What has great potential and still delivers occasionally (e.g. the summer series) as a forum for new science reporting from overseas and especially Australia is weighed down by bloated off-topic interviews that would be better in a separate podcast, and a presenter who is a avowedly anti-technology, anti-youth, and the possessor of a paperthin commitment to climate change, as evidenced by his insistence on travelling around the world for meetings instead of conducting them for online like the rest of us. All of this must be alienating to a large potential listener base. I will keep checking in in the hope that it returns to its core focus on such an important topic.
