Insightful exploration of science and medicine from those who understand it

While all this information can be found in articles and news stories, it’s helpful to hear from the perspectives of those who not only have a deeper understanding of the subject matter but also explore/explain all the details that are typically glossed over. The conversations explore this information in a way that pushes you to consider things you may not have previously. For the reviews who mention their distaste for politics—unfortunately politics are entangled with most subject matter today, and is something that is virtually impossible to avoid. If your political opinions are so strong that you cannot even listen to another with an open mind—that’s on you. These aren't journalists, these are people who are well versed in areas of science and medicine and are qualified to give an opinion when relevant.
