Customer ReviewsSee All
Thorough, interesting, entertaining
I love having an accessible, honest, and entertaining way to stay on top of some of the current “happenings” in the scientific community. I really enjoy the quick background info, the thorough analysis of the studies, and the suggestions of other interesting studies to check out.
I enjoy the studies and information, they are told in an interesting way. However, I cannot stand the useless affirmations that signify you guys are listening to each other. I'm trying to listen to what one of you has to say it every five seconds I'm hearing "yeah", "sure", "OK". It's so distracting and the only real thing I find a problem with your show.
Well Worth a Listen!
A refreshing, informative podcast that navigates the wonderful world of science in a way that is easily digestible for listeners of all ages. Lucas and Jesse charismatically demonstrate their wit and intellect as they decipher misleading science journalism without a single ounce of pretentiousness.
