Loving the Taproot

Award winning podcast. Truly inspiring!!! It isn't just about how scientific papers are produced but also about life. Loving the combination of science and the people behind the science, their struggles, background, ideas... Always offering entertaining and interesting content.

Finally a plant biology related podcast!

This is a great podcast that highlights what goes on in the life and experiences of PIs. Great for young scientists as well as a general audience. It's also related to plant biology which is quite undervalued in Biology.

Chlorophyll? More like Borophyll!

I'm a botanist and this podcast is painful. I was so excited to see another science-based plant podcast hitting the market but WOW this has to be the most boring podcast I have ever listened to. This is not a celebration of plants, it is a humdrum look at academic life. Way to make science and plants seem boring. Listeners shouldn't waste the space on their device.
