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....

RadioLab has changes

RadioLab used to be one of my favorite podcasts until it started getting focused on political issues. I hear enough of that in the news and don't find those topics to be in any shortage among other podcasts. Missing the old science content!

Sad.

Radiolab has gone pants-on-head stupid recently, with a mean streak.

“I’m going to take back the word gonads!” declares one of their idiot reporters. Take it back? From whom? It refers to ovaries and testes.

It’s this kind of stupid and agenda-driven drivel that makes me very sad for the future of this once-excellent production.

Oh, and Molly [Webster]: here’s your potluck dish. You’re just awful.
