Reversal of opinion

A while ago I wrote a rather hastily unpleasant review criticizing, particularly, Cara's role in the show. Against my premature distaste with this wonderful co host, I continued to listen and quickly realized I had been rash and simply wrong in my first judgement. Around 15 episodes later, both old and new ones, I've quickly fell in love with the show and recommend it to anyone who wants a sober mix of news and humor important to our lives.

Better than Truthy

Great podcast - another reason to be happy it's Saturday morning! Informative, entertaining and humorous.

Have to repeat others -- CARA!

Same as others have pointed out. Love the show, love the science, love the presentation. Only if Cara doesn't ruin it. There's really a ton of issues with her, so I won't dwell on all of them. I didn't realize it at first, especially why I was so irritated at times while listening to the show. And then, during one of the recent episodes it was a totally different show. It then dawned on me that the difference was that Cara was not there. And what a big difference it was. No one was giving us her "pure", "know it all" opinion, no one was interrupting other speakers, etc.

Sorry to say this Cara, but you either bring the show back to Earth or, there are quite a few talented female science presenters out there.

Other than that, the show has aged quite well. Good job guys.
