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....

Great info!

RadioLab is an excellent source of knowledge and information on many different subjects but we really could do without all the dumb songs and sound effects.

I unsubscribed

After years of listening I have unsubscribed. Politics have been forced down our throats constantly in the last two years and I’m sick of it. Not everything in life is about politics and this podcast, which I previously enjoyed, has gone down the same road as so many media outlets before it. The ubiquity of politics in media makes many, like me, feel as if its purpose is now propaganda. For a long time the US had the benefit of a media that reported facts. The media reaped the benefits of that in the form of trust. Americans as a result don’t recognize propaganda when they see it. I didn’t until I realized how obsessive it was becoming.

I have now had my fill of politics. My reaction is now to shut off anything political. Life has more to it than all this and I refuse to sign on to all the hysteria. My life as a result of shutting off politics is so much less stressful. I recommend that everyone shut off unnecessary political discourse.
