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....

Radiolabs the Gold Standard

This is a generic observation/review of Radiolab after scrolling and reading the comments of unhappy folks who tuned in originally and decided to tune out. It was easy for me to discern their politics which sadly for them is their loss. But typical, and it explains so much. Radiolab is phenomenal. The hosts and producers are top notch. Always revealing and insightful.

Too much like for my liking.

I used to enjoy the stories so much on RadioLab, and anymore, it's like, well, I like, know I'm suppose to, like, just enjoy those stories, but it's, like, the speakers are just like, so, like, I don't know, just, like, pausing to, like, you know, make a point? And end with that up-questioning tone to every sentence? So I'm, like, out of patience now. I'm sorry to miss the, like, more insightful stories, but it's just, like, I don't know, I'm like, tired of parsing the speech patterns of the speakers.
