Excellent “Out of the Litterbox” Thinking Show

Although the weekly podcast is very long (2+ hours), it is a complete coverage on various scientific fields. I also appreciate their opinions on the scientific studies or topic, even if I do not agree, since such discussions make me think in 360-degree fashion. Thank you for an interesting and challenging show (in a good way) :)

Sooo Science you say...

Wow, the continuous sprial into politically correct "Science" is really disappointing to watch... I use to love this show for bringing intersting facts and new science into my life.. For far to long I've watched it embrace and parrot the views of politics without ever really looking into the science they use to peddle their views. No more I say!!!! I'm out....

Unmedicated ADHD

Justin really drags down the shows by not preparing and presenting news he hasn’t looked into beforehand, talking over the other hosts to ask pointless questions or give quips.
