Reviews For Radiolab

OMG . I am student of math and science and feel like baby when I hear their work. Infective heredity is the best episode. Awesome work.
Sometimes I see the topics and think “meh” but I’ve never -not even once!-been disappointed in all my years of listening. This podcast has often changed the way I look at the world.
If you want the very best of indoctrination into the liberal agenda, this podcast is for you! By means of entertaining sounds, "pew! pow! vvrrrrtt!", and snippets of liberal deception, "what COLOR was the skin of that police officer again?", "how attractive and NICE was that gay man again?", "can you tell us how GREAT communism is?", you too can become a pink-haired, gender-neutral, emotionally-stunted freak who is triggered at the word "trump"! Wow, just came on again to note the hate speech in episode Gonads: X&Y at 25:11 This podcast is disgusting.
I'm a long-time subscriber and, after listening to the updated re-broadcast of More Perfect: Cruel and Unusual Punishment, I am reminded of the continuing role Radio Lab plays in bringing listeners in-depth analysis of critical issues without sounding like stodgy academics. Thank you!
Did they have any physical evidence of drug overdose? Did Scott White get tested for the presence of opiates? That would seem to be the first thing to do when he arrives at the hospital “overdosing”

Please bring back This Podcast Has Fleas! It is amazing and I NEED you to make more! Please please please!
I’m new to the world of podcasts I think this is the best one so far I’ve listened to quite a few now as I’ve investigated which ones I like just don’t know how you can compete with Radio Lab they’re amazing at what they do

Cool subject

Most NPR podcasts are good and well done but Radio Lab stands out for the thought provoking and deep insight into the subjects they address. Every episode is compelling even if initially the subject may not seem interesting. My only complaint is the stream of new episodes seems to have slowed a bit. Thank you Jad and Robert and the whole team!
Radiolab is as good as it gets for podcasts.
For the love of god please change that intro. it’s unbearable. Otherwise, it’s one of my favorites 😃
This show is my all time favorite podcast. I’m addicted to it. I listen and relisten to every episode rather it be on the radio or on this podcast. I am forever intrigued. I always learn something new. I learn to think in new ways. One day I will get around to donating to this specific show. I have donated to my local NPR station because of this show on the past. Please never stop making these
Newer episodes are marred by bias, agenda, and contrarianism rather than objectivity.

I enjoy the variety this podcast delivers. My favourite is the one on crispr technology and how it’s come about
No wonder JRE always endorses this pod. Keep distracting the masses with smartest animals/ G ! I listen for material to debunk! And thanks for keeping my pockets FULL🤗🙅‍♂️!
Radio lab used to be great and engaging, but it keeps getting less and less science-based and more and more science-adjacent with some very big leaps in interpreting the implications of the research they report on.
This would be a perfect podcast if they didn’t insist on throwing in random “live” episodes. RadioLab is a top-tier program, superb in almost every way. Excellent sound quality and easy on the ears. I love this podcast. But live episodes have extremely diminished sound quality, and there’s always a “you had to be there” element between the crowd and hosts. The vibe of a live audience does not translate to the listener at all, and it’s at the expense of one of the best aspects of RadioLab! At the very least, indicate they are live IN THE TITLE so I can skip it. Just honest feedback from a fan. Again, I love this podcast.
There was a time when the podcast was developing episodes based on fascinating science. Now all you’ll get is a shoehorned science that fits into whatever the current political news dictates. Just listen to the older episodes, especially the one on colors.
Bring back Jad and Robert and the science please. The topics have totally changed with the new producers and reporters. It’s not what I want to listen to anymore. This has turned into a society and culture podcast. I just want cool science info. It makes me sad, I used to love this podcast.
It tells the past in a graphic way I also like that it actually brings the people who helped figure it out all of it. Jacob age 10
Is this a horror story!?!?!
This podcast used to be amazing. Instead of letting the research and science guide the show in an un-biased search for truth, the journalists now come up with their position on a topic before hand and go looking for opposing views to trash and supporting views to support. At least give the people you don’t agree with a chance to speak. It’s ok if two people listen to an episode and end up having two different positions on an issue by the end. You are trying to force feed people your opinions on an issue. Give people more credit than that.
One of my favorite podcasts.
The “G” series has been excellent. Keep up the good work.
Absolutely the best podcast out there. Variety of topics addressed through the best storytelling. The first podcast I ever listened to was the Dinosaur Apocalypse and ever after I have listened to hundreds more. Thank you all for everything you do! LISTEN TO RADIOLAB!
I started listening in the early days and would recommend Radiolab to all. Slowly the content has gone downhill and the political slant has become much more the focus than the exciting stories of old. If you liked the old Radiolab, check out the Hidden Brain podcast. It is a worthy replacement.
You now have TOO MANY ADS! The interruptions are getting just too long for me.
I started listening to Radiolab about 3 years ago when I saw an article about the CRISPR episode. I was hooked. The episode about Triage is probably my next favorite. The story telling and reporting is phenomenal. I’ve learned a lot listening to Radiolab and enjoy hearing about the science and discussion of application. I took a break for a while this year. It’s become very political. Still some interesting content but not really what I came here for.
They did an episode on the mantis shrimp and illustrated all the colors these shrimpies see by using a chorus singing a chord. Like, genius. Every episode is different but they often make scientific stories so human and so approachable. These episodes are a bit long but they cover a LOT of ground.
No longer even pretends to be about science and technology. Very sad.
Ive been a listener since I was a young man (17). And finally at my current age (25) I’ve given up defending radiolab when deciding whether they take it too far. This podcast leans a little too far left and it’s unfortunate because their audience shouldn’t be limited to people so far off center or even moderate left like me. But I digress and though they probably could care less I’d liketo give some encouraging advice. Stop telling your listeners what they should think by only offering your narrow ideology’s. Offer full representation and you can consider yourselves more authentic, honest and inclusive.
Even when I don't agree, even when I think they're not going far enough, even when I happen to be annoyed at Robert for interrupting one of their guests, I always learn. This podcast always adds to my life. Knowledge, thoughfulness, perspective. I'm so thankful for the team creating it.
Look, I love this podcast. But when she starts talking in voice that’s traditionally been used to mock someone’s intelligence... I cringed. I know it wasn’t her intention, but just wanted to point it out as something to be mindful of.
Consistently my favorite show. Inspiring, tear jerking and thoughtful!
Why do you have to destroy people’s Podcast 😈
I love listening to Radio Lab. It’s so well put together, the topics are always intriguing, and I learn something new each time . I downloaded and then listened to all the Radio Lab podcasts available and now I anxiously await a new one to be posted each week! Thanks Radio Lab, WNYC, and my local public broadcast station KUAC.
This show was originally recommended to me as a great science podcast. Since 2016 when I started listening, I would estimate that maybe a dozen podcasts actually discussed truly scientific content (i.e. biology, physics, technology). Those episodes are really interesting. However most of the shows are about social or cultural issues, interspersed with plenty of progressive editorializing. Look elsewhere if you want to learn about the hard sciences. If you want a show on politics and culture and least find one that’s honest about it.
Just listen. Listen to the G series. Now. Especially “unfit”. Those last few minutes brought me to tears.
I use to listen all the time but the podcast has gone from science based stories to left wing agenda. Leave politics out of the podcast and I will start listening again.....
Im a pretty young kid but I love these podcasts! Baby blue blood is my favorite. It’s just awesome how you find interesting topics.
It’s the truth.
Throughout my teen years this podcast was my go to and never failed to amaze me with the power of science. Today they attempt to push their agenda through anectodal evidence rather than hard science. Even as a liberal myself it’s sad to see a science podcast with so much potential be caught up in politics. (Especially sad to see that bash on Jordan Peterson in Episode about the miseducation of Larry P, I can’t believe editors and producers allowed that in the episode)
Radiolab has proved again and again, over the many years I’ve been listening, to boast quality journalism on fascinating topics presented with humor and creativity. I love Radiolab and always look forward to new episodes!
This was the very first podcast I ever listened to and the one that sparked my now endless love for them. I first listened to Radiolab in college as part of an assignment I was given. I was hooked after that and love it today as much as I did then.
Radiolab really hits on topics for every type of listener. I lose focus quite easily and these podcasts really keep me captivated. True journalism and a willingness to break boundaries. Simply incredible and I’m so grateful thank you Radiolab!!!! I listen to you on long drives, while doing chores, working and more. Thank you so much I’ve learned so much from you. Oh and people reading, if you have the means donate to this wonderful podcast.
Used to be such a great podcast when it was mostly about science storytelling with Jad and Robert. Current episodes are more dramatized and not even internally consistent!
