I started listening to Radiolab about 3 years ago when I saw an article about the CRISPR episode. I was hooked. The episode about Triage is probably my next favorite. The story telling and reporting is phenomenal. I’ve learned a lot listening to Radiolab and enjoy hearing about the science and...Read full review »

They did an episode on the mantis shrimp and illustrated all the colors these shrimpies see by using a chorus singing a chord. Like, genius. Every episode is different but they often make scientific stories so human and so approachable. These episodes are a bit long but they cover a LOT of ground.

The absolute best shared astronaut experiences. Not how water stays in balls and pissing in diapers. Profound views of a Earth and what it is really like out there.

No longer even pretends to be about science and technology. Very sad.

Ive been a listener since I was a young man (17). And finally at my current age (25) I’ve given up defending radiolab when deciding whether they take it too far. This podcast leans a little too far left and it’s unfortunate because their audience shouldn’t be limited to people so far off center...Read full review »

Even when I don't agree, even when I think they're not going far enough, even when I happen to be annoyed at Robert for interrupting one of their guests, I always learn. This podcast always adds to my life. Knowledge, thoughfulness, perspective. I'm so thankful for the team creating it.

Please do more science and less politics, “colours” and “words” were absolutely brilliant. Thank you for your great work!

Look, I love this podcast. But when she starts talking in voice that’s traditionally been used to mock someone’s intelligence... I cringed. I know it wasn’t her intention, but just wanted to point it out as something to be mindful of.

Consistently my favorite show. Inspiring, tear jerking and thoughtful!

I love listening to Radio Lab. It’s so well put together, the topics are always intriguing, and I learn something new each time . I downloaded and then listened to all the Radio Lab podcasts available and now I anxiously await a new one to be posted each week! Thanks Radio Lab, WNYC, and my local...Read full review »

This show was originally recommended to me as a great science podcast. Since 2016 when I started listening, I would estimate that maybe a dozen podcasts actually discussed truly scientific content (i.e. biology, physics, technology). Those episodes are really interesting. However most of the...Read full review »

Just listen. Listen to the G series. Now. Especially “unfit”. Those last few minutes brought me to tears.
taliaandjude via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/19
Everything about this show deserves 5 stars. One of the most interesting, well-produced, consistently enjoyable shows I have heard. However, I can’t in good conscience give a show 5 stars that deletes episodes as new ones are released. Especially, as in the case of this one, when old episodes...Read full review »

I use to listen all the time but the podcast has gone from science based stories to left wing agenda. Leave politics out of the podcast and I will start listening again.....

Im a pretty young kid but I love these podcasts! Baby blue blood is my favorite. It’s just awesome how you find interesting topics.
ConcreteWill via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/19
The sound design, constructed narrative, and exploration of ideas on this podcast are just amazing. The episodes aren't segmented or dry like a lot of information based audio content. Pick an episode featuring a topic you are interested in, sick back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

It’s the truth.
Biggiesmallz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/13/19
Throughout my teen years this podcast was my go to and never failed to amaze me with the power of science. Today they attempt to push their agenda through anectodal evidence rather than hard science. Even as a liberal myself it’s sad to see a science podcast with so much potential be caught up in...Read full review »

I’ve been a long time listener of the podcast and my background is in genetics and Neurosciences. I really enjoy radio lab and I think it’s a great podcast for people to download and listen to a scientific fact told through stories by amazing people with really high production value. However...Read full review »

Radiolab has proved again and again, over the many years I’ve been listening, to boast quality journalism on fascinating topics presented with humor and creativity. I love Radiolab and always look forward to new episodes!
MKTrunning via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/19
This was the very first podcast I ever listened to and the one that sparked my now endless love for them. I first listened to Radiolab in college as part of an assignment I was given. I was hooked after that and love it today as much as I did then.
jade echols via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/09/19
Radiolab really hits on topics for every type of listener. I lose focus quite easily and these podcasts really keep me captivated. True journalism and a willingness to break boundaries. Simply incredible and I’m so grateful thank you Radiolab!!!! I listen to you on long drives, while doing...Read full review »

Used to be such a great podcast when it was mostly about science storytelling with Jad and Robert. Current episodes are more dramatized and not even internally consistent!
municy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/02/19
I see from the comments of others that I’m not alone in being distracted by the sound effects and strange editing. It seems like they started to try too hard. Nice content though.
tbenni01 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/01/19
Always amazed and never surprised at the quality of information available to us.

Stay neutral guys and you just might keep more listeners. I can get my politics elsewhere, don’t tell me what to believe. Thanks.

Such a great show. Thank you

I wrote a review for this around 5 years ago. Old podcast- “This show has supplied me with facts to help ease interjections in social situations for years now :) Thank you so much for all your hard work” I just finished bit flip and a few of there other newer eps after taking a break from...Read full review »

It used to be more pleasurable to listen to Radiolab. Much too political of late so I unsubscribed
amcan8888 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/30/19
Often interesting but the use of all the sound effects are distracting, annoying and insulting to the listener’s intelligence.
Wamylove via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/19
Love learning with you! I would love an easier link to your website so that I can see visuals. Must listen to your episodes over and over again so that I can really soak it in. Thank you very much. María Lucía Gómez-Greenberg ☺️

Used to be one of my favorites but lost its way.

I work a job where I work with my hands and have ample amount of time to listen to podcasts. Nothing is better than Radiolab... by far my favourite podcast. Have been listening since 2012 and still can’t wait for new episodes. I feel like the radiolab crew are my colleagues, as I hear their...Read full review »

Everything about Radiolab is perfect. They have the perfect hosts, perfect stories, perfect soundtrack. They have become my favorite commute companion. A big “congrats” to the team who make it awesome!
Gabycst via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 06/23/19
Actually a good podcast, But in one of the most recent episodes, Jordan peterson was misrepresented in a really gross Way. It is because of these kinds of blatant lies that a country Can become so badet polarized. Will not be donating

This is, hands down, the best show. Nothing comes close.
Tradecraft Design via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/22/19
You simply must listen to this podcast. You must. Such great stories about how we got here as a people/planet/universe/math problem, what we do today as such, and where we may be going... Life is weird adventure, you want Radio Lab as a co-pilot.
Kai Balls via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/22/19
Literally. They are in a league all their own and are incapable of producing an episode that isn’t profoundly great.
Ohhunny via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/22/19
The production value of this podcast cannot be beat! Just absolutely a joy to listen to. While I’ve great enjoyed how they generally keep things apolitical, recently they have been more and more involved in the political sphere, to my great disappointment. I hope this is just a temporary...Read full review »

Also don’t believe any review that includes a grammatical train wreck of a sentence as follows. “Often this is done covertly often (?) implying that they (?) opinion is the right one.

I used to listen to this show religiously. I even went to one of the live shows. Recently, though, I noticed that I had not listened to it since last year, and I had 16 episodes waiting for me. So I started listening, and I remembered why I stopped. This show used to be super cool and all about...Read full review »

This is hands down my favorite podcast ever! It’s is the most unique and interesting collection of stories told in the most fascinating and brilliantly creative ways. Captivating, clever and entertaining.
KMH79 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/19/19
This show used to consistently stretch my thinking and teach me so much. Now it seems to be fixated on a one-track socio-political messaging. I wonder if the era of Trump has changed priorities...

It’s unfortunate that a podcast focusing on technological topics assumes its listeners have such a short attention span that they must add an unbearable amount of irrelevant sound clips and sound effects which constantly cut off the speakers. It’s painful to sit through to try and get the overall...Read full review »

Don’t be fooled by all of the negative reviews by sensitive conservatives. Just listen to a couple of episodes and see for yourself.

Your weekly blue church sermon. Antiscientific, stupid and wrong.

Just discover this podcast. I love the random subject and I wish science was explained this way at school.
👾klem via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 06/17/19
Production quality is amazing, stories are usually interesting but instead of trusting the audience to be intelligent enough to come to their own conclusions, they force their point of view down the listeners throat.
