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....

Got me hooked

This was one of the first podcasts I ever listened to and I still stay current on all episodes. What hooked me was the episode: Colors
Man mind blown 🤯

Not what they used to be

They used to be the best science podcast on the internet. Now they do social science with a hard science facade. Still very well done but now, indoctrination not education seems to be the goal.
Even though I agree with most of their views, I find this disappointing. Also, We don’t hear near enough from Robert anymore. (Which I suspect has much to do with the above). Still mostly worth while, and I listen if I get the chance; but no longer a “must listen”.
