Brilliantly funny and informative

I adore science podcasts and this one might be up there for my all time favourites. With the incredible depth of knowledge from the guests, and with each episode being base on a new topic, it gives you a full insight on scientific facts!

Decent but lightweight

Typical BBC “podcast” - it’s just a radio show marketed as a podcast. Good people and excellent topics but each episode is semi scripted and there are no opportunities for real discussion. I just gave up in disgust after a guest explained their position on something - Cox politely says that he completely disagrees but the obvious conversation which should then have followed was precluded by the scheduled change of topic to something u related. Infuriating and I know Cox must have felt the same. His potential for leading public conversation on interesting topics is completely ham strung by this format and that is a crying shame.

Just let her talk.

I really love this show but unfortunately found myself turning it off less than 5mins in recently. During the episode Are humans evolving? The Trinity Dublin professor was interrupted and talked over so many times that I found myself getting unbelievably bored, I can only imagine what she must have felt. Perhaps later in the episode she was able to talk, o didn’t listen that far but are humans evolving? Appears that socially we might have some way to go.
