Love the show. Please do keep up the great work. Perhaps take a look at the latest episode of 20th February, it seems to be a jumble of a new and old episode.

Long gone are the days when I would jump on this podcast the moment it was released. The old presenters brought character and humour to the podcast and made it an easy fun listen. I would pick up and retain so much information. Now it’s very earnest. Lots on the current pandemic (of course) and...Read full review »

Three pin plug, come on Chris, you are supposed to be a scientist, get your house fitted with a 7 kw car charger and charge at 5p per kwh overnight.

Why isn’t Dr Karl on anymore? :-(

This is a wonderful pod. Highly recommended.

Microphone of moderator needs to be adjusted. The voice pitch is piercing and incomprehensible to this native English speaker.

Rubbish science!!!! This scientism. Real science is the natural science.

This is my go-to science podcast for everything up-to-date and accurate. Presented in an engaging and accessible way, I wholeheartedly recommend this podcast to anyone interested in the world around them. Which should be everybody!

Used to enjoy it more. We need the Dr Karl segments back. The other episodes are very good too, just that Dr K is very fun to listen to.

This programme has recently lost its soul and humour now Dr Karl & Rhod Sharp are no longer presenting, Dr Chris Smith is knowledgable and informative but he comes over as a bit of a humourless ‘know it all’. All things must end I suppose Goodbye Dr Karl and Happy Retirement Rhod - Live...Read full review »

Great podcast. Dedicated team

One of the best bio-science podcast/radio programs. There is enough time to explore a subject without the editing that normally leaves only the headline points. It’s good to have time to hear the details without it feeling rushed.

Used to really enjoy this show. Listened to the one before Christmas 2019, the fat vs sugar show, and it was so wrong that for me it calls in to question a lot of the other things given as facts on this show. As someone who has nearly completely reversed my high blood pressure (now medication...Read full review »

I love this show but this show will never download to my phone for offline play. it’s incredibly frustrating for when I’m on the go.

Been listening to Dr Karl & Dr Rhod on BBC radio 5 live since early 2000 whilst still in Scotland. Time slot in the middle of the night when broadcast was a great challenge but having moved to Australia in 2004 and with the wonder of technology I can know enjoy this excellent show any time...Read full review »

Great podcast and who doesn’t like Dr Carl... I only wish it would download easier. It’s the only podcast on iTunes that seems to hate living on my phone... sigh

You are on the best podcast ever
dorbuggy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/09/18
I enjoy the eclectic approach of the podcast, but, since the introduction of the advertising notice it stops 4 seconds before the end. It does not flow to the next podcast.
rojaed via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/23/18
I really enjoy the full 5 Live show podcasts with Dr Chris. He's an excellent interviewer and great at summarising difficult topics and the full show is really well put together. I'm a big fan of Dr Karl but prefer Dr Karl's own bite-sized podcast and the fast pace of the triple J...Read full review »

Informative, interesting and fantastically cool - EXCEPT when Dotun is involved ......... shut up!!!!!!
Laurie Whitten via Apple Podcasts · France · 06/08/17
Worth more than 5*. Awesome of the BBC, dr.karl and iTunes to work together to give the audience- us, such a good show! Best podcast (+ the triple j one ) 😀

Fantastic podcast but will no longer download, I have to stream it which is a pain.

great science podcast
Saj in ny via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/27/15
If you can't get enough of Dr.Karl he also has other podcasts. Dr. Karl's Great Moments in Science (ABC Aust.) , Sleek Geeks (with Adam Spencer, ABC Aust), and Dr. Karl on Triple J (ABC Aust).Read full review »

Great podcast! Love every episode of it.
Davo91 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/15
Fantastic podcast and one of my most anticipated regular downloads of the week. Only criticism is that the episode title is not always reflective of content. Eg. Episodes titled "Dr. Karl: ..." are sometimes regular 5 science episodes that do not feature Dr. Karl at all.Read full review »

I always enjoy listening to Dr Karl and his enthusiastic delivery, but i found the shows presenters a bit of a challenge to enjoy, especially during the phone in portions. The show is well produces but i feel that it could do with a bit of editing when presented as a podcast.
londo43 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/02/14
The moderator thinks that he is so funny, but he should keep most of the jokes to himself. The explanations by the experts are very interesting, but he keeps making stupid comments. It is ok to make a joke a two, three or may be four times during a program, but he must be doing like ten or more.
Paul Keres via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/22/14
My choice of title might be a bit on the harsh side but listening to this Dr. Karl bloke spin a science angle on sporting prowess which he was clearly making up as he went along was cringe worthy. Just before this “quality” item he was to complaining about the hot weather he was having (I believe...Read full review »

Keep up the great work guys, the three amigos taking on the task of educating to interwebverse.

a steady run rate has delivered a fantastic 100 for this fabulous pair. I'm normally away with the fairies by the time dr k has mentioned dark matter.

Dr Karl you are awesome but this pommy show is awful! I could only manage a few minutes of listening and there is no life on this show at all. The other guy sounds like he is bored. Big thumbs down guys, fellow aussies stay away because the poms on this will drain you. TripleJ all the way!
Cobber88 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/12/13
without having to listen to the dummy girl you have to listen in triplej
Surameric via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/09/13
The best podcast ever. Informative and entertaining. Dr Karl has equally high levels of knowledge and humility. Always willing to listen and consider other opinions before commenting ( apart from on climate change). 😉

Awesome podcast guys, keep up the good work!

Funny, smart, interesting, often sweet.

This podcast is amazing and interesting! The show answers the tough questions in a way that we can all understand, well sometimes :) If you like science or just want to learn so nice facts then download this now! A+
RewindPodcast via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/24/12
These two are great to listen to, you learn an awful lot and both have great humility. They inform and entertain. I lost my wife a few years ago and suffer with sleeping problems so I play this podcast at night and things seem a lot better as it feels you have 2 friends chatting with you....Read full review »

very good podcast. Educational and entertaining
njb1969 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/28/12
We download to listen to at night and then kids load it for their iPods to listen on the way to school, then we all discuss it over dinner that night. My kids want to be astronauts and biologists and engineers and inverters thanks to podcasts like this. Thanks Dr Karl.
AvecSans via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/19/12
You kind of get the feeling that Dr. Karl doesn't really know what he's talking about. each show there are several instances where he resorts to checking wikipedia. it is, however rather funny, in its own ameturish way.Read full review »

I love Dr Karls podcasts and look forward to them each week. They are very informative and he definately makes science fun. The triple J podcasts are just as good and well worth downloading.
