Recent Paper Decent Puzzle is a podcast with two parts: First, I pick apart a recent scientific journal article in enough detail that a non-expert listener would be able to speak intelligently about it. Then I present a decent puzzle, so the listener has something fun to work on until the answer is announced in the next episode.

fun and concise

even when the field is tangential to my own, it’s fun and thought-provoking

Always makes me think

I love hearing about papers which are not in my field, and they provide great dinner conversations. Even more, though, I love the challenge of the puzzles. They make me think in different ways, and I love the feeling of accomplishment when I crack them!

Short & sweet & science-y

Great concept for a podcast. Entertaining, interesting, and just the right length, too. Very well done.
