AstiD ,

This pod cast just gets better and better! Interesting Science & Questionable Comedy :)

Almost 10 years of this podcast going, it's just gotten more and more polished - Really interesting interviews with some highly regarded scientists in their field and subject matter experts along the way make for compelling listening.

If you want to start in easy, I really recommend the episode 140 about the development of beer for space with 4 Pines brewing, then listen to the rest!

Hot Aussie accents and science and skepticism! What’s not to like!

These fellas make me laugh and learn. So much fun

Love it!

Fun podcast to listen to! First heard of it on No Such Thing As A Fish, been subbed ever since. Love listening to it while driving or working out, really helps pass the time and find out new things, and the hosts are hilarious.
