Fantastic every episode. Dense and explained well subject matters. The host and reporter have great rapport, I like them.
This is a great science podcast. It's length is about perfect, especially for a daily podcast. Just long enough for a short car ride or one part of a workout, for example. And the tone is delightful: Maddie and Emily both approach science stories with delight and wonder, plus a sense of play and humor. This is a favorite part of my weekdays.
The PERFECT guest for your morning commute or at the breakfast table, each episode gives just enough info on some new scientific topic to whet your appetite, but leaves you plenty of room and resources to go looking for more if you just need to know more in-depth. It's gotta be tough balancing accessible language with thorough coverage, but Maddie (and occasional interim hosts) do a great job.
Great podcast that makes science accessible and fun. Topics are quite varied and there's always a bit of humor thrown in to keep it light while still being accurate and factual.
Quick daily science podcast, hosted by Maddie Sofia with reporting from Emily Kwong and other NPR reporters. Breezy, informative, fun, and relevant.
A new offering from NPR, super short science segments every weekday on the latest science news!
little bits on facts every weekday , very good for my 10 minute walk to work
