A unique take on science education

Jason has done an excellent job making science fun and accessible, by merging the power of social media, spectacular classroom experiments, and his cosplaying canine Bunsen.

The Pawdcast is a successful addition to Bunsen's fledgling empire, each episode featuring an expert from a different branch of science (or Dog Twitter), along with Q&A and funny stories about Bunsen and the experts' pets. The enthusiasm is palpable, and the result is fun, informative and super-cute.

As the hosts' broadcast confidence improves and the format solidifies, each episode improves in quality. This series is a joy to listen to; you will quickly become invested, and learn a new "superfact" every week!

Also, Bunsen is the Twitter Science Dog, who has a lab coat, a fabulous disapproving glare, and favourite elements (Boron, Argon and Potassium 😉)... what more do you need?

Fantastic!

What’s not to love? Bunsen and his dad present science in a fun and interesting way. Love them on Twitter and look forward to more podcast episodes!

Fabulous new find!

I’ve been following Bunsen for a while on Twitter and the podcast lives up to the adorable lively welcoming intelligent twitter feed. I look forward to more podcasts and enjoying the family banter. Well done!
