Wonderful videos of scientists at work!

Great short videos to accompany the radio podcast. I would love to see them integrated so you could watch the radio show with video and related stories. But... I think kids like the quick nature of these videos, like a YouTube video. These are visits with scientists, visits with animals, exciting quick- paced content I think make mostly by the young staff at Science Friday who really click with a young audience. My middle school daughter won't listen to the radio show but she will voluntarily watch these videos.

Stick to Friday's podcasts.

One of the best.

Although I’m getting tired of the Covid focus, I do love this show. Nice to get science from scientists and not from politicians.
