Of all the perennial podcasts I am subscribed to now, this remains my favorite. When there's a new episode, I listen to it first. It speaks to the science geek in all of us. It takes no shortcuts in describing a discovery or explaining something well that my [Ivy League] professors could not, while making me roll on the floor with laughter and joy. I highly recommend.
... Slight update: I need to concur with some fellow reviewers that I [really] miss the science focus, but I also gain a ton out of your transition to focusing on the law. As an attorney (don’t judge) whose former career in environmental science [that I miss Every. Single. Day.] (health and water quality, primarily if anyone wonders) its clear to me how the two fields can be fascinating to a single individual (in this case, a team of people, of course).
The stories behind the law are so well done. They bring so much color and context to a subject so familiar to me now (14 years in legal practice) that I am amazed how much I gain out of each episode.
BUT, if I had a say, if not a full focus, maybe at least a sprinkling of science episodes. They give me a reprieve and are a window to my true joy.
