My favorite science podcast!

This is my go to podcast for all things science. Entertaining and informative. I do like the humor as well they interject as well, however I am glad they ditched the little side skits they included in older shows - it was often times just a little bit too cheesy and drawn out.

Rave Fave podcast

I listen to lots of science podcasts but this is my absolute favorite. I hate the ones with four guys just shooting the breeze about Important Topics. I mean, I can do that myself. Big Pic Sci has great guests, great production values and the best hosts in radio. There. I said it. I think Seth Shostack(sp?) is hilarious and Molly Bentley is warm and witty. They’re a perfect team.

Fun listen, and educationally useful

As a human who values understanding the world around me, I have enjoyed listening to Bi-Pi-Sci since I discovered it a couple of years ago. I have really enjoyed episodes that connect broad topics where I wasn't aware of the connections, or have provided historical context to topics that I have learned the technicals of already, but not the story of the discoveries.

As a science teacher, I have found the "Skeptic Check" episodes to be partcularly valuable for highlighting topics where poor reasoning is on display, and modeling the process of breaking down and examining ideas.
