If only they guy actually understood science

I like the podcast a lot, its just annoying that the guy sort of walks the line between weird conspiracy theory nut with his "own little theory about gravity" and such, and actually representing someone who wants to share scientific knowledge. She's pretty awesome, but it really pales when compared to the plethora of other podcasts about the same subject. "Science… sort of", quackcast etc. are all better. Astronomy cast is awesome too.

Keeping that fragile flame of reason alive

TWIS is a weekly tribute to science and reason, excellently presented and not without bite. Consider TWIS an antidote to all the mumbojumbo, I.D. and religious woo woo around - it keeps you sane and entertained in a healthy way. Great stories and interviews with *real* scientists :-) And you gotta love that disclaimer.

One of the absolutely best podcasts out there. Grab it.
