Could be a good show but the BBC’s neo-Marxism constantly shines through. They are more interested about how science interacts with social justice and the relationship between historical oppressor/oppressed. Typical neo Marxist agenda - the presenters are probably so indoctrinated they don’t...Read full review »

This podcast has been a long term staple for me. Keep up the great work. The two halves marry nicely. The presentation of scientific research and findings is easily understood. The crowd science segment alway gives me a new perspective on how to look at scientific problem.

I usually like the podcast but the last episode was sponsored by Saudi Aramco, one of the biggest science deniers on the planet. This is absolutely appalling. A disgrace. If you think it’s worth taking their money to continue making this programme, then I won’t be part of it, even as just a...Read full review »

Science for the public. Always interesting, intriguing and exciting.

A must-listen every week. Love this show. I enjoy this show and learn so much every episode. Thank you. One request please spell Maasai the way the people themselves spell Maasai. Thank you, Asante and Ashe.

I am new here and I love it already. I have learned a lot from the latest episode. Keep up the good work 🎉

Or people with child like intelligence? Or just produced by people like that?

A superb show that covers a variety of topics and is open to the concept that society is moving on and evolving.It is willing to challenge racist,sexist and gender stereotyping.Well done.

vary it up a little bit!

Useful for keeping up to date on Covid and climate change but that’s about all. Good content but repetitive.
Informed0pinion via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/22
I listen to mostly plant and insect pc’s so the diversity I hear on BBC is welcomed.
noob_of_death via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/28/22
I feel this show repeats too many stories/articles I’ve already heard from the other science podcast shows I listen too weekly. If you only have time for one show then this is for you, unfortunately though, for me, I would wish for more original/exclusive content.
FWJM66 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/15/21
I realize that many prefer to get their science from politicians these days so it’s great to have another science podcast venue.
Polyplane via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/21
I will gladly change my review to five stars if I hear 4 episodes that aren’t on COVID-19 and climate change

Liberal garbage with a British accent.

Good podcast.

It’s a perfect podcast for a nerd like me. I just love it.

The content and reporting are great. The show notes would be so much more useful if they included links to publications, preprint, websites, etc.

Too much Covid. Boring !!!
DaveFromOz_777 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/04/20
I was enjoying an episode when it suddenly turned into a racially polarised exercise in how to divide a population by calling them racist in the radio programmes they listen to. This propaganda was delivered twice in one program. Thankyou for selling out our national broadcaster as an eternal...Read full review »

I’d gladly change my rating to five stars after you have 4 episodes in a row that don’t focus on COVID-19 or climate change. There are far too many podcasts in my feed dealing with these 2 issues, please tone it down a bit. The other episodes from this podcast are great.

Such a shame that the interviewer did not ask what percentage of Greenland ice is melting. The answer would be approximately 0.1%, with minimal effect on sea levels. This would have put the scientists data in perspective. Greenland study published in 2020 estimated, by combining 26 individual...Read full review »

Usually good, but social science ain’t proper science, replicability rate is awful.

doc rohit via Apple Podcasts · India · 05/11/20
A very interesting series that expands your knowledge. The scientific approach, which acknowledges the uncertainties is a good antidote for the “absolute truths” that are put forward by some many commentators everywhere.

Always informative. 🙏🏽👍🏽

Molly Bentley from a Big Picture Science misrepresents the actions being taken by the American president and seems to be drawing on her own political affiliations in her biased assessment.

So far THE best podcast I have heard. Chills down my spine. Goosebumps listening these episodes
JoostIIPK via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 03/10/20
What can I say this podcast is perfection, I listen every week. The science in action is such a nice edition to it. I also listen to CBC Quarks and Quirks, they are similar in scope but not in topics or guests so they supplement each other well. But where as CBC naturally focuses on Canada,...Read full review »

Wow, the crowd science piece on stuttering was really moving. I wish l was there in person myself!

One of my favorite times each week is when I have a chance to listen to the BBC Science Hour. The creators of the Science Hour have an excellent ability to make their stories accessible, relevant, and human. Over the years, I have listened to *many* other science podcasts, and the Science Hour...Read full review »

The science hour is not only entertaining and compelling but also accessible. The different sections in each episode focus on different, but somewhat related topics. They go into different depths and depending on one’s knowledge in a certain theme, it will leave you either wanting to know more or...Read full review »

Love the topics. Very easy to listen to.
MunroJones via Apple Podcasts · France · 10/01/19
A great way to start the week. A summary of the latest science and a wonder-filled delve into some perplexing Qs by the Crowd Science team.

Fascinating and refreshing questions from a scientific inquisitive perspective.

I enjoy listening to this So much while I’m working out in the countryside, friends are regularly surprised how informed I am and updated in science. Highly recommended

Fascinating and wonderful information, clearly presented. I especially liked the episode on procrastination.

Good research. Good topics. Enjoyable to listen to. I love these podcasts.
HarrieM via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 08/12/19
But I hear too often previously released material just spliced together. Would it not be better to just do a 20 minute podcast with only new material?
Diversitée via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 07/14/19
The quality of the sound is so bad that I can’t listen to this. Which is a total shame because you’re wonderful.

The biodiversity episode fails to identify the real cause of the loss in biodiversity. 7-8 billion people will burn through all natural resources, including plants animals and wilderness, in a few generations. I think the microbial biodiversity might delay this or even prevent it. Glad I won’t...Read full review »
