Things I never knew!
I really love that this podcast talks about things I couldn’t have learned otherwise! Things like an invasive bug, or marine snow! Plus, it’s bitesized!

My daily dose of science
I love this podcast which is very well made with a range of interesting topics in Science everyday. It definitely brightens my day and teaches me something new each time. I highly recommend it to all science and non-science people!
