No Holds Science

The host is funny and ruthlessly unapologetic in his defense of science, which I find great.

Could be a bit longer

Overall great show.

Errors on the download

Used to listen to this a lot, but for the last couple of weeks all I'm getting is errors on the download and no podcast. It says there's a server problem that hasn't been fixed. Please fix it!

sweet as apple pie

Mirsky's fantastic AntiGravity column goes roaming.
What a pleasure to be able to listen to some of the issues reported in recent Scientific Americans whilst having ones hands free! I baked an apple pie.
A joy to listen too, light in touch but properly scientific. Need to know more? Plenty of references to follow-up blogs/sci-am articles. One criticism - could be more such references.
I hope the podcasts get longer and even wider ranging. Minsky is a great host and I enjoy the humour he injects, especially the skit on the WHO/who pun and bird flu, or was that flew?
MORE PLEASE.
