Wonderful

Even if you think you know a lot, you will still learn a lot! I just can’t get enough and never miss a show!

Great stories! And some quite funny...

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the stories were so good, enthralling and frequently sparkling with good humour. You don’t need to be a science enthusiast to enjoy OS, but if you are, so much the better!

Excellent Podcast

Unlike many podcasts that are so informal, conversational and frankly boring, this one is well presented, with new learning readily available and conveyed without a lot of excess verbiage. I learn something interesting from each podcast.
