A Worthwhile Listen

I love listening to this podcast during my commute! It's so refreshing to heard modern women reacting to and commenting on current events at the intersection between science and policy. I appreciate that I now have a way to stay up to date on cutting-edge issues in an interesting and engaging way! The way they summarize the panels and make it so accessible to general audiences is something the scientific community truly needs. Well worth listening to this clearly well-educated ladies!

I've found what I've been searching for

I listen to many great podcasts and this is my first review. Here is exactly what I wanted from a podcast: female voices talking about science and public policy in brief! These ladies do an excellent job covering hot topic science issues that effect the public at large. They strip down large documents and technical papers to key facts and issues that people need to know about. As a budding scientist and someone who is looking into getting more involved in science and policy, I am truly grateful for this resource. Please don't ever leave me!
