crazyleggs77 ,

Excellent program

It is so refreshing to a science podcast that avoids politicised science and reports the information relatively free of politics. Most American or British science podcast have a strong political component that has no place in science.

sokobanz ,

Political bias force me to move from that show

As well as “China Virus” phrase wich have right to be, COVID19 actually from china and i got no problem with that, but after “First amendment” episode, man, so sad.
First amendment basically tell us that GOVERNMENT can’t be censor. Twotter,Facebook or all of the apps together have nothing to do with First amendment.

YGlen ,

The Gold Standard

... no one does science podcasting better than Stuart Gary! He presents current discoveries and observations with clear and understandable explanations. I look forward to each episode!
