Love Science Friday

Every thing said about Hawaiian telescope was really interesting about science in the local culture. Everything except letting a another left wing nut compare it to colonialism is just crazy. Hope they (scientists) get together with the Hawaiian elders and work it out. Just try to keep the young crazies out of it.

Have enjoyed these podcasts for years, with one HUGE exception. Please find a new host. Ira Flatow cannot manage his role as the host. It's as if he is distracted or disintrested with what his guests have to say only to discover that he lost track of time so he quickly jumps in and cuts them off. Extremey rude and it happens ALL THE TIME!

Good info-weak production

There are better produced podcasts for people who like science and tech. My biggest gripe is with the host Ira- he’s got passion and enthusiasm, but is also bumbling and awkward.
The discussions can be dry and rambling occasionally, and Ira’s weak attempts a humor don’t help.
I’ve also caught him asking guest questions that (the guest) have just given exact explanations of. It’s like he wasn’t paying attention to what they said...
Occasionally there’s a guest who’s not very good at explaining their contribution to the topic, but that could be because it’s recorded live- which affects everyone different.
Despite all that, the information itself is pretty good.
