A little bit of everything

A great overview of science news. It doesn't go as in-depth as I'd like but I suppose there are other podcasts for that. It hasn't updated in a whole, though.

Audio quality has degraded

The topics are still interesting, but sometimes the audio quality is just way to poor to listen to. It's frustrating and disappointing, because I know they could be better. The telephone interviews often sound particularly bad. I wish NYT would dedicate some of my print subscription fee to improving the audio quality of the Science Times podcast.
