Nice overview of many subjects.

Very interesting, listened to the one about herp-o-compatibility. Banter is fun!
Peachy🍑Jess via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/24/21
This is an excellent science podcast that keeps things accessible but still informative on a wide array of intriguing subjects (and beer reviews). If you’re looking for neat science and cool hosts and guests, this is the pod for you.

But I cannot take the voices .... sorry
decandent pencil via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/21/20
This podcast is very entertaining. I have subscribed/unsubscribed multiple times over the years due to the fact that the hosts cannot keep politics out of the show. Unfortunately, podcasts are my escape to/from reality and are simply consumed by me to unwind. Politics invade almost every aspect...Read full review »
Entertaining, but… via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/20
If you clicked on this podcast you obviously want science and it’s got all those good bits you want with none of the bad. It’s funny, smart, and down to Earth while being very digestible for every kind of person.
Yinyangbeetl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/13/20
Science Sort Of is honestly one of my favorite podcasts. I’ve only been listening for the past 6 months or so but in that time it’s become one of my top favs! The subject matter and discussions are really well thought through and put together! As an Environmental Bio major, this podcast makes me...Read full review »

I’ve always loved science and I love to learn! I currently am not in the position to pursue any college at the moment, but I still want to learn scientific stuff! If you’re in my position, this show is PERFECT for you! I can’t stress how much I’ve learned! There are 100’s of different topics that...Read full review »

This podcast is absolutely brilliant.. I love their banter, interviews and unique subject matters!!!

This is my go to podcast for long drives. I am a science nerd and I love the entertaining, humorous, and pithy conversations about all things science and sort of science. It is great when you can learn about newly discovered parasites, the feasibility of super hero powers, and the history of beer...Read full review »
Starnostar52 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/19
This podcast is fantastic. It encourages the listener to explore scientific topics and challenges them to learn exciting new concepts every day. Ryan is a great host bringing talented guests on the show, never a dull moment. Science education is more important than ever, this podcast nails it.
BoilerUp75 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/19
This was one of the First Podcasts I‘ve ever listened to, and one of the very few I still enjoy listening to just as much as in the beginning (back in 2011!). The show makes Science and scientists relatable and the love for science that the hosts and guests transmit with every episode is so...Read full review »
Rüllibilly via Apple Podcasts · France · 04/06/19
I’ve been listening to this podcast for years and enjoy it greatly. Episode 292 had Ryan put his foot down on abusive behaviour and that inspired me to finally write a review. I’m behind in episodes but I’m working on catching up. Keep up the great work everyone.
Hawkbox via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/04/19
I love the personalities on the show, fun topics, good listening. Tons of back episodes. This is a great Podcast for sure!
Steel City Celtic via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/19
I love listening to your podcast at work. Especially the variety of topics. As a kid, our family did many outdoor activities such as fossil and arrowhead hunting. In college, I took a PaleoBiology class that I absolutely loved. Living in the Chicago area, we were able to do a class field trip...Read full review »
Debbie’s iTunes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/20/19
I just started from the beginning and I’m about 18 episodes in. The first few were slow and didn’t really hold my attention but something kept me listening and it started picking up. I now listen on a daily basis, they talk about interesting topics in science and I feel I learn something new...Read full review »

I started listening to this podcast a little over a year ago. I skip around episodes to try to catch up. I have a crazy long commute, and this podcast has made my commute something to look forward to. I enjoy the chemistry between the hosts and the laughs. I’ve learned a great deal about...Read full review »
lizardBBB via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/19
Amusing at first but the arrogance displayed by the host became quite annoying to listen to after the 150th show in. Maybe It’s part of the shows character but during these times, it’s certainly turned me off enough to unfollow the podcast. Good luck!
Grawley via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/19
I’ve been listening to this show for years and it’s alway been great for some lighthearted science talk. The various discussions about the hosts experiences in graduate school was a great, honest source of information when I was first considering it myself (I’m now in the 3rd year of my PhD in...Read full review »

I have never been into podcasts, but after getting an internship this summer that left me with a lot of time to my thoughts, I decided to give them a try. This was the first podcast I tried out and I have been listening ever since. I’m still trying to catch up, but I have truly enjoyed the...Read full review »
Ear4music001 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/28/18
I used to really like this show. The 'scienceish' content has steadily declined while the self indulgent, irrelevant banter has increased. I now FF through the drivel, or just delete the episode and listen to one of the many focused science podcasts. Please get your acts together before...Read full review »
EmLoG via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/15/18
This is my favorite podcast that I listen to. I’m a person that is interested in science but I don’t have any college degrees yet. They explain what seem like complex scientific principles in ways that I can understand. Y’all have definitely encouraged me to look into science more and enjoy it more.
Parkinator1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/14/18
I love “Science... sort of”... sort of. The show began as a couple of recent or current students in the advanced sciences talking about science and things that are sort of science. Their variety of subjects and commitment to being accurate and having fun is admirable and very well done....Read full review »

I found your show while working my current job as a gas line inspector, now I listen to this show all day long. I spend all day outside, and although I may not be immersed in complex ecosystems, or doing lab work, I still feel like I am back doing field study’s with my ecology lab. I now plan to...Read full review »
hpi pgd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/18
This show has made me feel less alone in dark moments, and often makes me laugh in a way that’s not socially acceptable while wearing headphones and working in a lab. However, I have to withhold one star because, Ryan, you’re constantly interrupting people! I get that you put a ton of work into...Read full review »
Qgjkudehddfjvff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/31/18
I have listened to every podcast and it amazes me how often the songs reflect the topic discussed. If you pay attention and listen to the words of the song you will hear how it relates to the topic. This must take additional time when editing the podcast. Besides the wonderful content the only...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to Ryan and the Paleopals for a few years now as they are my go-to lab work and travel podcast.

ScienceIsFun16 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/22/18
The hosts bring real, down-to-earth science into every podcast. You almost feel like you are one of them, a graduate student working on a thesis to push the boundaries of science in some small way.
JT_UT via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/18
I’m nearly through the entire backlog of episodes(264/292) and each one is a joy. If you like a little drinking mixed with science and the awkward laugh in the middle of a public space then you can’t go wrong with this podcast.
MattJamesR via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/08/18
This is a solid show that gives you what it claims to. Things that are science, things that are sort of science and things that wish they were science. It, as anything should has grown over time and is a delight to look forward to seeing in your feed. Thanks to Ryan and the gang, now, in the past...Read full review »
kev0282 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/18
They do a great job to explain the science by easing you into the jargon. They cover a wide range of topics but they do have their specialities. I have been listening since episode 1 and it's like being at happy hour with SCIENCE!Read full review »

I am a physical ecologist and graduate student. I enjoy the humorous and interesting discussions had on the show.

I have to say, when I first started listening to this podcast, I wasn’t too crazy about it. Though I consider myself a geek, I just thought it was a bit TOO geeky. However, after listening to a few episodes, I changed my opinion and decided I really loved it. In short, like the beers and other...Read full review »

While I’m working in the lab, I’m usually listening to music or trivia, but I’ve missed learning science things!

While Ryan may be the...Read full review »
TokenGirl55 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/24/18
This show is fantastic. And considering it by itself, for the past year or 2, would probably rate at 4.5 stars. Good varied science. But the magic that made it great early on has been lost. Segments like odd man out, trailer trash talk, and the way I felt a part of their crowd has faded, and...Read full review »

I do enjoy your podcast even though I have to quibble about occasional sound quality. I mostly wear earbuds and when you guys have guests on with spotty audio connections it can be painful.

I just found this podcast about 4 months ago. I am addicted! I love these guys/gals! I wish I’d found them in 2010!!! The upside is I can binge listen. Listening in retrospect also lets me look up current status of things they talked about several years ago. Probably my favorite podcast thus...Read full review »

I have been listening to this podcast for over 3 years. It is always entertaining and brings me back to the days when my dad would bring over all his field herp friends. Good times.

I only recently found this podcast and started from episode 1. I instantly loved it and am now over 30 episodes in and still going.
