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....

Informative and Innovative

I really enjoyed listening to this podcast. Lithium was an extremely interesting listen I never knew the effects of lithium on the brain and the way it is used to treat bipolar disorders. I loved the fact that they incorporated a personal touch by using Jamie’s story, however if I had to pick an absolute favorite listen it would be HeLa Cells. The story of Heneritta Lacks was a profound listen. It’s amazing to know that this woman had such an impact on the science world as we know it today. I loved hearing of the discoveries made from a simple test and the way it bonded her family in the end. Amazing listen!!
