Come for the disclaimer, stay for the science

I've been listening to TWIS for almost 10 years. There are always great discussions about the science events of the week between all three hosts. I highly recommend it.

Informative but not for me

There is nothing essentially wrong with the show; its informative and topical with a wide range of subject matter. Its the style of presentation that irked me. I want something more mature and less hipster 'yeah man, like wow, thats totes cool bro'. If this style of presentation suits you then go for it, you wont lack for information or personalities to listen to, but its not for me.
