Profane, insane, and 100% primo science, Petri Dish is a no-BS podcast that explores the wildest subjects in modern science with clarity and evil joy.

Hosted by Sean Allen, a Nanoparticle/Immunology Researcher, and Nathan Allen, his "screenwriter" brother, Petri Dish fuses hard science with a freewheeling and madcap conversational style.

Cannabinoids, Plague, Cats, the dreaded Candiru, and the even more dreaded Covid-19: all these and more are dissected with intellect and irreverence, dropping every week.

So reject ignorance. Join the Scientific Revolution. Join Petri Dish.

I feel like I've found a real gem in Petri Dish. It's such a great balance of goofy, irreverent humor (which I really dig) and solid science and it's a great listen. The hosts are down to earth, very smart, and hilarious, and the recurring characters are really clever and awesome. I recommend this show to my scientist friends a lot, and 10/10 recommend it to you!
Petri DishThanks Vikram! This means a lot coming from a fellow science dude and podcaster!
Entertainment and Comedy meets Science and Education. You literally cannot go wrong with this show! No matter what episode you choose, you'll come out the other end knowing more than you did before. The presentation of the subject is top notch here; it's well researched and expertly delivered. The theme song is also very enjoyable and there's no lack of recording quality here, very pleasant on the ears. If anyone is looking for a educational podcast and they're NOT specifically looking for history, this will be my number one recommendation!
Great podcast with fresh creative content. The hosts keep the conversation informative and funny without making it feel forced. You need to have this added to your podcast listen list! - #ODPH
