Terrific series

Thank you for making this available.

In-depth analysis

It's really great to hear honest, reasoned analysis from actual scientists. The discussions highlight a handful of recently-published scientific papers and describe the context of other research on the subject as well as any particular weaknesses or strengths in the methodology or analysis. My only complaint is the long breaks between episodes, but that's probably due to scheduling. Useful Science, well named.

Edit: no updates for six months. Alas, we hardly knew ye.

What Scientists really say...

This is one of the best podcasts out there to help an average person get a grip on what those "shocking" new studies really mean. The hosts are relaxed personable and above all thoughtful. They go into their topics in depth, so it's great to put on in the background while running errands and soak in some useful non-sensationalized science reporting.
