Best Comedy Science Podcast!

This was the first podcast I ever listened to and Byrne and Wade have filled my days with science as well as laughter. They also introduced me to scientific skepticism, as well as several other skeptics such as the Skeptics Guide to the Universe. I love their light-hearted approach to their content and the do a good job at presenting factual information in a humorous and digestible way.

Too much school boy humour

While some facts emerge eventually, the bad language and gutter level banter are exhausting and not worth enduring for the amount of information delivered.
