Fun and informative

Love this podcast, theGIST cover such a massive range of science and technology topics. They always have great guests on and have interviewed people from NASA, popular science authors and even TV presenters. They manage to break down some pretty complicated stuff, even in the shorter episodes - I’m so glad that they are releasing more regularly now! Subscribe!
