Updated review: still one of the best.

One of only 3 or 4 podcasts I listen to regularly. Their conversational style, fascinating topics, I feel as though I were back in medical school, hanging out with some of the cooler profs.

Parasitus in Latin is a lesser guest...

Get to know the creatures who share your body, and the bodies of animals and sometimes invertebrates. Broad based education with some clinical medicine, some basic science, and general musings by very experienced academics who are generously sharing their time. The entire enterprise is sincere and well-meaning.

Truly awesome

My second favorite science podcast. Gastropod is the first, Inquiring Minds was displaced by TWiP. You'll learn more in a few episodes than in a semester of college, if you don't freak out completely instead.
