This used to be one of the best podcasts but it drastically changed during the fall of 2016. Ever since then this podcast has been extremely biased in favor of liberals and a lot less interesting.

I started listening to Radio Lab in 2014/2015 and I have been an avid listener ever since. This is radio journalism in it’s finest form. The team at Radio Lab explore meaningful and interesting topics and turn out a final product that is masterfully scored and immensely captivating. I would...Read full review »

I like the variety of topics discussed in the shows. Informative, interesting and varied.

I really enjoyed listening to this podcast. Lithium was an extremely interesting listen I never knew the effects of lithium on the brain and the way it is used to treat bipolar disorders. I loved the fact that they incorporated a personal touch by using Jamie’s story, however if I had to pick an...Read full review »

Radiolab presents science in a way nobody else does. They use soundscapes and a sense of wonder to bring the listener deep into a subject. I'm engaged and curious for the whole episode. And I regularly find myself in one of their dream-like musical bridges processing what I just learned. ...Read full review »

Radiolab gets me through work every day. You guys rock!
Samjgraf via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/03/19
Radiolab was the first podcast I ever got addicted to. I would still be thinking about the topics they covered hours or even days after I listened. However, as every other reviewer is saying, it has become something totally different than it was. Radiolab is now a worse version of TAL. It...Read full review »

The recent emphasis on culture instead of science themes doesn’t work for me. Also...The Jad & Robert dynamic was great. Not so much with the new producers. Simon Adler and Lafif Naser are just awful to listen to and don’t tell a well paced story.

Wow!
Eric Persson via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 11/26/19
I’m an avid listener to RadioLab for a couple of years and hearing Jad, Robert, and the team begin an episode makes me feel like I’m back home with trusted friends who have another great story to share.

This is the BEST podcast on everything science! So much variety!

Use to love it. Turning into a grievance platform for the left.

One of the people directly in charge of developing this technology talked about at the 23 minute mark could not answer a very simple, basic and important question about what was the purpose of developing this technology. Very scary to me!

Look at the names of their 5 star reviews alone (ie ADD5D). Thank u podcast and to this platform for letting me speak this
eqest via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/19
I’m a long-time listener who was captivated by their incredible research and storytelling of science and technology topics. Their stories on the Judas Goat, Ransomeware, the Lone Star tic, and the mantis shrimp will forever be my favorites. However, it has devolved into a politically slated...Read full review »

I listen to a lot of podcasts, but I actually find myself waiting for this one every week. I’ve never been disappointed.

Best podcast ever made
cyperx via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/20/19
It’s with a heavy heart that I leave a negative review, because Radiolab was my first and all-time favorite podcast. As a professional in the legal field, its science stories were such a fascinating escape. Radiolab took complex, paradigm-shifting science concepts and explained them in an...Read full review »

Subjects have shifted towards cultural topics reminding me of This American Life. Just not my cup of tea. I preferred the more science based subjects from the earlier years. Still good, but there seems to be an abundance of these types of cultural podcasts on the market.

Love this show!

Hi just a quick note to let you know how much my friends and I love your show here in Australia keep em coming
bluey loves it via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/15/19
One of my favorite podcasts – educational, entertaining, and thought-provoking. I favor the older episodes though.
Denisetakespics via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/14/19
Used to love this podcast. Can’t handle all the rebroadcasts, infrequent new episodes and now you’ve gone country? Dolly Parton is crap music with boobs. I thought we’d all moved on...
jonasg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/13/19
This is quite simply, one of the best podcasts out there.
SelahJT via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/13/19
I don’t know if any other podcast has made me feel things as deeply and think about a topic in a completely different way. I am so grateful for the team that puts this out, and I look forward to the newest episodes. Ima forever listener.
Bjbabslive via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/12/19
This show deserves five stars for years of amazing, interesting content! I appreciate the hard work and dedication! However, the cross-promotion of other podcasts have become obnoxious to me as a dedicated listener. It’s too common lately. I’m taking a star off because of how many episodes I’ve...Read full review »

Always interesting and well produced I know I’ll love each episode as it comes up
SGJ88 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/09/19
I feel bad for this guy because he’s so misguided and clueless. Ignorance is so sure of itself. Even funnier that the guide is Africaans. Surprise, surprise.
LouzS via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/08/19
I devour these episodes as soon as they are in my feed. I’ve learned so much and often earlier than many people are aware of a thing (CRISPR comes to mind). I also really love the offshoot pods that have branched off of radiolab. Favorite episode: Bliss.
snoelr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/04/19
Radiolab was the first podcast I discovered years ago and it is still the standard by which I judge all podcasts. Smart, engaging and fun. When I see a new episode I drop everything and dive in.
Brenda Chamberlain via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/02/19
I found a few of the earlier podcasts to be quite entertaining, but some are hard to listen to due to their politically biased opinions. Jad tries way to hard to be woke, it’s cringeworthy. A lot of the time they try to shape things as racist (when it’s not) and their distaste for the right is...Read full review »

Radiolab. I’m writing to you from Johannesburg, South Africa. Listening to the episode “Songs that Cross Borders”, as one example of many, please examine the way that you talk about Africa and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples in this episode. Could they be construed as othering,...Read full review »

One of the best programs out there
Crazyharp via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/30/19
A view from Australia: Without doubt one of the best produced, presented and researched podcasts out there. Trailblazers . However they lose a star for the more recent emphasis on overly Anerican content. This was the best science podcast with international appeal, but now I find myself tuning...Read full review »

I listened to this usually excellent podcast for years but good Lord, is this best you can do? A deep dive to reveal that there aren’t a lot of black square dancers? Please quit trying to mix liberal politics with your “scientific” stories1
Texas Flamethrower via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/28/19
I understand the desire to get more political during these times, but art has social value without being overtly political and radiolab was more successful at expanding minds when it was still a science podcast. It used to pursue explored untold stories without knowing how it would unfold. Now,...Read full review »

This podcast is amazing!
scubadivegirl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/25/19
It’s sad this pod cast used to be educational and interesting now it seems to be all about the producers personal political beliefs and nothing about science. I’ve subscribed to this podcast for at least five years and I’m unsubscribing. I can’t listen to his nonsense anymore. They should change...Read full review »

I listen to so many podcasts... and this is the one I always come back to. I learn so much from every episode, and the music/production is SO engaging. Everyone should listen

I love this show. It’s getting better all the time. I’ve gotten at least a dozen people turned on to it and they love it too.

I started listening to Radiolab way back in 2006–in it’s early days. I was a big fan of their analytical approach, engaging storylines and science-based themes. I’m sad to say that the glory days of Radiolab are over. In the past couple of years it has become a serial propaganda piece for extreme...Read full review »

1st off, I want to say...I LOVE RadioLab overall. I’ve been listening for probably 15 years now, and it is THE podcast that got me into listening to spoken word audio. If anyone asked me what is your favorite podcast of all time, the answer is a no brainer, “RadioLab!” However recently, the...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to Radiolab for a couple of years now and can always say I am blown away by the diversity of topics and well structured episodes. Even when you think something could never be up your alley, you somehow find yourself intrigued over an episode about eels. I absolutely love them....Read full review »

I normally enjoy Radiolab, but as the Mom of 2 Gifted girls, I was extremely disappointed with the G: Miniseries episodes. There are so many more relevant issues they could have dug into, such as the lack of gifted programs in many school districts, including those in the heart of Silicon Valley;...Read full review »

The tone has certainly changed. Used to present issues in a beautiful way that allowed the listener to learn and draw their own conclusions- now the imagination of the listener is unnecessary. The story is decided for you by a pre-determined agenda of the presentation of material. I miss...Read full review »
