“I grew up looking to Bill Nye to learn about general science. He always made it fun and interesting. He is arguably one of the reasons I studied engineering. Understandably I was very excited about this podcast when it came out.
It started out very strong and covered a wide array of interesting science. The guest were interesting to listen to as well. However, overtime the time of the podcast changed.
The podcast now is more concerned with political activism and critique. Seemingly, about half of the guest over the past year proudly present their political beliefs alongside the science. There are even times where their beliefs are more front and center than the science itself.
These are the reasons for my two stars. Let the science influence politics, but not the other way around. I’m deeply disappointed in the direction of this show. If you want a similar show that leaves politics and feelings out, I would recommend Startalk. After all, Bill Nye cut his teeth in podcasting on that show while being one of their All Stars.”
