I like Science now

I always hated science because I felt like it wasn’t relevant to what I thought I wanted to have a career in. But with all the climate change issues, I wanted to get a better understanding of the facts. Now I know and I listen to this show every week. This show is fast, it’s easy to follow and I really enjoy it.
