As someone who’s passionate about the science behind pretty much anything this podcast is just Perfect and I have learned so much. It breaks things down very well.

The title and angle of this episode annoyed me. Tourette’s is not something you can “catch” of a website (or anywhere else) and suggesting it in the title made me feel like you are assuming your listeners to be pretty stupid. I know the episode goes on to establish that Tourette’s isn’t caught...Read full review »

I am an environmental geography student, and this podcast brings up really relevant topic matter that we discuss in our lectures. Very informative and easy to digest - wish I found this sooner! Quickly become one of my favourite podcasts.

This is by far my favourite podcast. It is intelligent, interesting and witty. I always look forward to episodes and have listened to every one!

Great way to learn about science 🗣🗣

Science Weekly is one of my faves! I’ve learned so much from the show, and I’m always impressed by the depth and breadth of knowledge of the hosts and their guests. There is truly an episode that will benefit everyone - don’t miss it!

Very tiresome dialogue as we are so sick of having COVID / vaccine story. Try talk about something positive and interesting.

Subscribed for 5 years. This podcast used to be one of my favourites when it was about science and nature. Fantastic source for information. Not only was the Covid 19 commentary biased, it also wasn’t very good. Unsubscribing.

I enjoy the topics
Farukwaja via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 07/11/21
I enjoy listening to the content but the audio is poorly mixed. One voice is loud and the next voice is too quiet. I have to increase the volume and then decrease the volume. Especially so when I’m listening in the car.

Lots of interesting subjects so entertaining saved me from going mad during confinement

Not for me

‘Why do humans struggle to see themselves as animals’ episode was fascinating, great question for our times and the guest was an excellent communicator. Keep them coming please!

Simply, this series seems to be well researched and is, to a layman, very well presented. The currents editions on Covid are excellent. A further discussion on Covid and in relation to its vaccination, the impact thereof of any vaccination and, specifically, on impact of vaccination on...Read full review »

I’m not sure I can continue to subscribe to this podcast. Why on earth are you constantly playing music while people are talking? I’ve just tried to listen to Alex talking to the gaming researcher and almost every time Alex spoke you played some music while he was asking his question. It’s...Read full review »

I’m just here for the science. It may be hard for others to appreciate anything science related these days but not me. That’s all.

Ads
Love the content though you must sort out the adverts. Some are much louder then the content which is very annoying and damaging to the hearing and also sometimes the same spot is stitched 2x in a row to the same piece of content.
Holticulti via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/24/20
More from the environment journalists please. The Age of Extinction team bringing their work to the podcast is great news. Very interesting episodes on national parks. More please!
Michael Mole via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/11/20
Boring !!! How about some non covid science stories. Why don’t you change the program name to The COVID Show, as thats all every show is about. Plenty of other more interesting and wide topic science podcasts around. Goodbye.
DaveFromOz_777 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/15/20
Go daily, but then every every episode on the virus? Change it up. Get a variety in the show
Brightlingseaboy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/13/20
So enjoyed the recent episode on Gondwanatheriums. For weeks now every single science podcast I subscribe to has been covering Covid-19 and nothing else. I'm so sick of the subject that I've been deleting unheard any episode that mentions coronavirus. Everything that can be said has been...Read full review »

My review is that the podcast is great. Answer to the question asked “more non-crony?” Yes please, still science in other areas going on.
HLovatt via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/09/20
Loved today’s episode Very interesting Keep on
bonbisue via Apple Podcasts · Mexico · 05/07/20
Great to hear other science developments outside covid-19. Do more!
Calijanthe via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/07/20
Back when this was hosted by Alok Jah, it was my fave podcast. Ian Sample is good but apparently not considered for taking over. Instead they’ve added a couple of poorly spoken girls—yes they present as girls, not women— who do embarrassingly trite interviews. The whole thing has become...Read full review »

Love the podcast but the Microsoft AI snow leopard adverts have made me really against Microsoft AI. They need to stop running these. They have been the only advert for what feels like months... 🤯
alpoolyUK via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/26/20
Really enjoy this podcast but if I have to hear about those bleedin snow leopards one more time I’m going to drop my PC on the cat!
BartBurn via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/13/20
Just finished listening to the episode on coral reefs and was very disappointed to learn that Dominion Energy (which relies on fossil fuels) and Toyota (which is siding with tRump as he guts fuel efficiency standards) are sponsoring the podcast. I thought The Guardian was a leader in informing...Read full review »

silly subjects, some very mediocre contributors and often NOT about science
obafgkmn via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/25/19
So interesting and stimulating. Mind blown! Compulsory listening for anyone fascinated by the universe and everything in it.
Arian Mirzarafie-Ahi via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/11/19
The 20/8/2019 (repeat) of Soundscape ecologist Bernie Krause was a fascinating episode. Thank you very much 👍
SMonttana via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/10/19
Love the diversity of subject matter. Very to listen to and understand as a lay person, but also great focus on evidence and talking to experts. Only complaint is not related to the podcast, but could you guys please get rid of the “Emma John” ad that is in every episode? It’s so loud and...Read full review »

The episode “Are alternative meats the key to a healthier life and planet” has an egregious error stated by presenter. She says “vitamin B12 is also known as folate or folic acid “ This is not true. Folate and Folic Acid are different forms of B9. Cobalamin is the alternative name for B12. This...Read full review »

Have just listened to the first episode of the three-part series “Oceans of Noise” and it’s marvelous. The Guardian’s podcasts are reliably engaging, and “Science Hour” has just outdone itself with this new series. Thanks so very much to all the people involved in bringing it to us.
MobyDick99 via Apple Podcasts · France · 05/03/19
Agree. Music and phone and Skype ringing before tedious waste of listening time.
imack03 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/22/19
Please please please can we have voice audio without back ground music tracks. There is also the issue of over lapping voice tracks. Both issues ultimately greatly distract from the interesting content.
Mark N Q via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/27/19
I mostly enjoy the content of the Podcasts however I find the sound quality irritating. There seems to be inconsistency on the volume level and quality of recording. I’m constantly having to adjust the volume control to be able to hear and understand guests. Needs to improve on this.

Overreaching, politically prescribed thinking
CRS123456 via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 10/21/18
Ive listened to every single episode of this podcast but the last year or so I've gone off it. The production is very formulaic now - lengthy intro and sneak preview followed by ambient music, then (without fail) the recording of interviewees answering their phones prior to the interview,...Read full review »

Love the science content. Hate the drumming and musik.

Good range of subjects but poor delivery. Slow, simplistic with long empty pauses filled with background irrelevant music.
Canunotcy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/28/18
Great subjects. Interview techniques and inane chat dismal.

Hi guardian! I used to love this podcast until now, today’s episode on social inequality, how can you say that Italy is a socially equal country with relation to income? We really have an unequal society, with the divide getting bigger and bigger - maybe we have less depression because at least...Read full review »
