I am not a working scientist, but I like learning about science. This is my favorite science podcast. Although the talented host Robin Williams never misses a chance to find a link to Australia, he interviews english-speaking scientists from all over the world. The scope of the show is very broad, covering life sciences, physical sciences, technology, information science and science policy, but Mr. Williams never seems out of his depth. The pace is a bit leisurely, so listeners in a hurry might want to try the version of this podcast with separate stories. For my part, I love the depth the 1 hour format allows. An interesting new feature is one PhD candidate each week describing their research.
