It's hard to estimate the value of this podcast

This podcast stands out as pretty much constantly astounding. As someone who writes about science for a living, the 'scientific' concepts here are rendered in an enviably fascinating and pretty much idiot-proof way. It's a testament to the skills of the hosts in their use of the audio format that they can cruise through really complex stuff and give the ordinary listener entertainment and learning in a single scoop. This is the best. Now if they would only get season one on itunes....

The Best Podcast

I don’t know if any other podcast has made me feel things as deeply and think about a topic in a completely different way. I am so grateful for the team that puts this out, and I look forward to the newest episodes. Ima forever listener.

Love this Podcast

I devour these episodes as soon as they are in my feed. I’ve learned so much and often earlier than many people are aware of a thing (CRISPR comes to mind). I also really love the offshoot pods that have branched off of radiolab. Favorite episode: Bliss.
