Love it!

Bill Nye was my favorite growing up, and now I’m in my 30s and he’s still teaching me new things all the time. This podcast does a great job at incorporating new science news and current events. I listen to every episode!

The mind boggles

And I think that is the intent here, because as we all know when it comes to life or other processes in the universe, macro to micro, it’s important that you understand two things. Firstly you need to know the science rules. Secondly you need to know that science rules. And with our good friend Bill Nye & Co., it’s all tied together, elegantly, in the pod “Science Rules”, a pod for children of all ages, any human with a question, and with the common elements enjoyed by all sentient beings; a thirst for knowledge and a sense of wonder.
