Texas House Call Veterinarian ,

Good stuff

Excellent material/topics, translated nicely for those of us non-physician/non-research scientists. I’m a veterinarian, so depending on the topic, many human medical podcasts go over my head. But the hosts of this show speak lay-scientist language and tie the research into the real world. Really enjoyable and informative. -Dayna Baxter, DVM (Houston, TX)

Stupendous scientific podcast

Entertaining and cutting edge stem cell podcast. Kiki and Daylon have huge feet to fill. They've been doing an immaculate job thus far!!

Good, but first half is irrelevant

A promising podcast, but I suggest tightening up the content to only stem cell/regenerative medicine/etc related content. The first half of the show is taken up with general science news, or news tangentially related to science that is completely irrelevant to these topics. A stem cell podcast is a great idea; I think trimming the fat would make this amazing!
