I have listened to the Nature podcast with fascination for years. From the first episode I heard, it has been must-hear audio for me. I can't let more than a few hours pass after the posting before I listen to it each week. The podcast's combination of extremely substantive reporting with the infectious, clever enthusiasm of hosts Kerri Smith and Adam Levy, leavened by numerous interviews with the scientists behind the discoveries, is always compelling. Hats off to the whole Nature podcast team! And thanks to Nature Publishing, for underwriting such an effective way of increasing understanding of and appreciation for its flagship publication, the monumental magazine Nature.
