Good for my brain!

I’m always looking for smart podcasts, and am particularly interested in neuroscience. The problem is neurology podcasts seem to come and go, or are not well produced. I’m glad I discovered "Explain the Brain" because there are so many interesting things to learn and Audrey makes it easy to digest. I’m hoping this is a long-term project, so keep up the good work!

The perfect science podcast

I'm a super non-sciencey person, so it takes heroic and creative efforts to get me interested in science-related content. Well, Explain the Brain is right there with Radiolab for me. The episodes are quick, fun, and really interesting. And Audrey Quinn is the perfect host. Subscribe now!
