Nice but brief
I ordinarily enjoy the show, but I find the attempt to monetize the current racial themes in political discourse by focusing on black science to be rather cringeworthy.

What can I say? I’m a fan
I’m a hard-core science nerd. There, I said it. And I’ve been a fan from the beginning and I can’t recall the last time I missed an episode. I find that Short Wave strikes a great balance of serious scientific information without taking itself too seriously.
