 34 people rated this podcast
There are a lot of fads, blogs and strong opinions, but then there’s SCIENCE. Science Vs is the show from Gimlet Media that finds out what’s fact, what’s not, and what’s somewhere in between. We do the hard work of sifting through all the science so you don't have to. This season we tackle alcohol, fasting diets, DNA tests, race and the fertility cliff.

"First off, I love Wendy Zukerman. She's funny, punny and just a delight in general. She is genuinely excited about the subjects and it's easy to hear. In my opinion, Wendy and her team are very good at triangulating the information and viewing the subject from different sides. This podcast is very insightful. Whether you're a kid or an adult, you'll be enlightened in many ways. "
