Striated Pattern ,

Infrequent, but worthwhile

My favorite show on the TWIT network.

Line & Wave ,

A must!

Found this podcast a few years ago and have been a fan ever since. Check the website to stream or DL the mp3s.

Market_Student ,

Excellent podcast but....

Fabulous selection of scientists with superb credentials but Marc has definitely a problem in that he hesitates too much, stumbles on words, stutters, and has difficulties formulating and expressing his thoughts. This is unfortunate as Marc is a very smart guy, entertaining and likable.
