I have been a Radiolab fan for more than 15 years. The show has been a part of my life. I have shared it with my kids and with friends. Unfortunately since the departure of Robert from the show, and now Jad, the show has crashed. The new generation is loud and obnoxious. They are more interested in listening to their own voices and making private jokes than in reporting a particular subject or listening to their interviewees. It is really very sad to see radiolab go extint.
Simply the best-made podcast ever. I happen to love science, but with their storytelling techniques and their sound-recordings of everything, even things impossible to record (color spectrum), they could probably do a show on some boring economics topic and I'd be hooked.
I LOVED this podcast a few years ago. The CRISPR episode got me into listening to podcasts and I immediately binged them all. There have definitely been great epsiodes these last couple seasons, but the magic seems to be fading. I miss the more science heavy awe inspiring episodes I guess. Although, the show is evolving recently and I'm excited to see where it goes.
Radiolab will always be one of my favorite podcasts. The stories are very well thought out and the production quality is high. I'm always learning new, random things through Radiolab that I never would have considered otherwise.
Used to be amazing. Now it can't stay out of politics. Used to be an escape. Now it's just a reminder of everything around me already. It's a shame. Truly a podcast that has lost it's way, likely pressured by those who must deliver their views in every other sentence.
The podcast that made me love podcasts. One of the absolute best storytelling shows out there. Deeply researched, bold, with some of the best sound editing in the game. Radiolab is an all-time great show, and an absolute favorite of mine.
