Almost (but not quite) Phenomenal

I stumbled upon this podcast by chance, and I was so suprised at the quality of the content. They've interviewed some really high-profile guests about very intriguing topics. However, I was really disappointed at the shabby sound quality. In the Oliver Sacks episode, you can hear sirens and traffic in the background. In others, there are often noisy distractions and fuzzy interference. I hope the creators work out these kinks a little bit, as this show could easily compete with other big science podcasts, like NPR's Science Friday. I'd also like to hear the interviewer interact with the guest a little more. She seems somewhat passive and sometimes lets the guest wander from the topic. Let's hear a dialogue, not a one-way chat with some "uh-huhs" thrown in! Good podcast, but it has the potential to be phenomenal.

Great find for the Science Inclined

And to think I didn't know that much about milk, having spent so much time consuming it.... Great program when you want to listen to something with some storyline and flow, not your more commonly found "lecture." Friendly.
