Simply the best

Quite simply the most interesting podcast available. Rob makes easy access into some of the most brilliant and innovative minds available to us interested mortals.

There is no better way to convert your otherwise wasted commuting time into knowledge of cutting edge science than by getting mentally absorbed by these interviews

Love this podcast - I frequently repeat listenings

Only frustrations involve the long lag times between podcasts at times. Which is another way of saying how much I love these conversations, which I would describe as “accessible, but still steep conversations”, and well worth the attention and effort. Highly recommended - great guests and discussions, and Rob is a superb host.
