Charming and interesting podcast

This podcast dives into a few scientific articles each episode and discusses them in a way that scientists and non-scientists alike can enjoy. The hosts are consistently knowledgeable, clever, and surprisingly funny (sometimes I even find myself laughing out loud). A great step forward to aid the public with scientific literacy.

Terrific series

Thank you for making this available.

In-depth analysis

It's really great to hear honest, reasoned analysis from actual scientists. The discussions highlight a handful of recently-published scientific papers and describe the context of other research on the subject as well as any particular weaknesses or strengths in the methodology or analysis. My only complaint is the long breaks between episodes, but that's probably due to scheduling. Useful Science, well named.

Edit: no updates for six months. Alas, we hardly knew ye.
