Reviews For The Naked Scientists Podcast

I've been listening to this podcast for a year now and just got around to reviewing it. It is my go to podcast when I feel like learning something new. This guy knows so much. W
Learning so much science on this podcast. Very engaging and educational!
I'm a chemistry PhD graduate stufent and I'm thoroughly impressed by the balance between telling a scientific story accurately through the eyes of researchers and making sure the story is relatively staightforward to understant!
Love the way you make Science accessible to the general public! I'm a faithful subscriber. Keep up the good work!
Great podcast about science news, with a great cast of presenters and show variety (news, questions from listeners, news from science fairs, etc). The refinements to the show-new music, etc are great. I always long for the next episode. Good web site, too. Thanks guys!
Like the show, good stuff.
I love that kids are so involved in this show, and it is presented at a level that adults can appreciate without a bunch of kid "antics"...

funny and informative..
I love the podcast as it has lots of very interesting stories that I wouldn't normally get. I used to only listen to Science Friday but now its good to have more sources of science in my life! Makes me sound super smart in conversations :)
Just what I was looking for - thank you!
Informative
No other podcast that I’ve found covers the full breadth of science news, along with in-depth conversations about the latest discoveries. I have friends who are actual scientists, and I am often more informed than they are about what’s going on in the science world thanks to Dr. Smith and the Naked Scientists team. I especially love the contributions of all of the female scientists on the show. Dr. Helen Scales is always a delight to listen to. Her passion for her field and joy of talking about science comes through in every episode she is a part of.
Dr. Chris Smith and the other Naked Scientists give me my weekly dose of science in fields that I don't follow. The story/science selection is very good and the show's staff are excellent reporters. The way they report on the stories keeps the show from getting dry, without trying to be funny.
I like the scope and quality of this program. It provides for user input, covers basic and advanced topics and helpful advice. Dr Chris Smith does other programs, too, and I'd listen to anything he works on. Thanks to him as well as everyone who works on this show.

5/5

Love the accents! Wonderful show, I need to go back to the beginning and start listening from then.
love these podcasts!!!
And then there was ONE. . . This appears to be the last Naked [fill in the Science] podcast. That's a shame. everyone one of them strove to bring you up[ to date discoveries and thoughtful recent commentary. But the most generic is by no means the least. They cover everything from Antarctic drilling, to archaeology, to behavioral science, to population studies, to genetic research and more beyond. Worth a serious listen.
Want proof? Listen to this podcast.
During the school year I do a lot of traveling. This is one of the handful of podcasts I LOVE listening to as I drive back and forth to school. Thanks SO much for making these available!!!
I've been listening to these podcasts for years, usually while I am hiking. Each one is informative and fascinating. What a wonderful way to inform the non-scientist about the phenomenal discoveries all around us. I love each of your host's unassuming manner, wit, and intellect. Usually when I return from my daily hike, I have been so absorbed, that I don't even realize I was exercising. Lots of times I wish I could recall everything discussed, but that is not possible. However, when a related conversation comes up with family or friends, I find that it all comes back to me. Thanks so much for helping me to be more informed. This is far and away my favorite podcast.
Great show for science lovers.
I enjoy the current science news and the kitchen science
I cannot say enough good things about this podcast! I'm hooked. Listen and you will be hooked too!!!
This is by far the best science show podcast peroid. The big difference, and what makes this show so good, is that the staff are highly educated scientists themselves, with the abillity and tallent to ask relevant and probing questions. Judge for yourself. Listen to a couple of shows of the Naked Scientist say compared to Science Friday. It's the difference between Chess and Checkers. The range of topics discussed and the level of discourse is fantastic.
Great podcast. I've been listening since 2006 and I still enjoy everything they post. Science is eternally relevant!
Got into this through the "Naked Astronomy " podcast (also brilliant) and am having the pleasure of going back through all the previous ones and there isn't a bad one!! Several different topics in each episode covered in detail but not overly technical. The guys who do this are light hearted but obviously very educated and erudite...subscribe!!!
One of the best science Podcast. This and Astronomy Cast are my most favorite shows. Full spectrum coverage for almost all subjects of science, and the English accents are quite charming too.
This podcast is interesting and the people on it even more so. Love to meet these guys one day.
Every once in a while you stumble on a gem that is so much more valuable than it may first appear - well the cast of Naked Scientist is even more than that very simple, inadequate analogy. They were wonderful from first exposure. Introducing science in the buff... I'm at a loss for for superlatives, so I'll just say thanks.
So good. I can listen to 3 or more in a row and not get bored. Its amazing how they talk about multiple topics in a show. That Is why I love it so much. It always holds my interest. Gotta love the accents!
That covers it.
I listen to the "enhanced" edition of this podcast. It's extremely intersting and presented in an entertaining way. Great job Dr. Chris & team!
Simply one of the best science podcasts out there. Full of humor and knowlegeable hosts.
I subscribed originally to listen with my kids. And while my kids loved to listen, I find I love to listen to the show even more. Great information, technical but explained in an easy to understand way. Love it love it love it
This was the first podcast that I subscribed to years ago and it is still the very best of them all. Funny, wiity, and extremely informative.
very good science podcast. If you're American just the accents are enough to entertain.
Love it!!
A bit on the technical side; also callers going on and on but Dr. Chris Smith is nice and informed. My biggest beef is petty, so really not fair to the guys doing the podcast, but all the accents are so THICK for this American listener, that it becomes so distracting for me to listen to. It is too much work for my brain to follow along.
A general science podcast from Britain. They generally focus on a specific issue, but they're really good at answering interesting questions from listeners, such as "if I am holding my boyfriend's hand, will I get shocked if he gets tazered?" Sort of a mix between "reporting" and "conversation" styles.
I love this show. Interesting interviews, "kitchen science" experiments you can do at home and excellent hosts make this one of the best podcasts out there.
I enjoy this podcast - it's well produced, covers a wide range of science subjects, and produced well. The speakers are engaged and clear. It is almost as good as "This Week in Virology"!
I subscribe to a variety of science and skeptic shows and this is my favorite, all the latest science well explained. Interesting segments and good cast with Dr Chris. I'll read items later in print and recognize them from Naked. Great show guys!
Keep up the incredible work guys! I look forward to this podcast every week. You guys wake up rocking and don't stop rocking until you go to bed at night!!
Each show is filled with interesting news on a good variety of topics. The material is presented clearly and with enough detail to whet listeners appetite to learn more. The hosts are great, and the experiments are always fun. Something I love is listening to questions and comments from listeners all over the globe.
This is my family's favorite science podcast because we all like it, adults and kids. I'm surprised that even though the segments are pretty long, even my younger kids stay hooked in for the full episode every time.
Becoming too politically correct (AKA fashionable fascism). The same thing is now done better elsewhere without the agenda.
This is a great podcast, always keeps you entertained and teaches you something new every week. They speak at a slightly faster pace than other podcasts which helps you pay attention atleast for me...
