Just a great science show, not quite deep enough but time is an issue. But you get the facts as they see them in an honest grounded format. Keep up the great work Guys👍😊

The mixing of arts and politics only serves to underline the presenter’s skill and the central place science occupies in our broader world. Has been covering global warming for 50+ years. Doesn’t treat you like an idiot. Wonderful broad science show with great pieces on wildlife, physics, and...Read full review »

Having listened to the science show since a child, first on Radio National and more recently via podcast. I am unsubscribing in the hope that it re-focuses. What has great potential and still delivers occasionally (e.g. the summer series) as a forum for new science reporting from overseas and...Read full review »

Have listened to Robbin for many many years and find this show informative and topical. It’s helped me keep abreast of global trends as well highlighting science in Australia. A magnificent show of cultural significance to Australia

I find the science show encourages my curiosity in history, the sciences and music. It is a pleasure to listen.

Globalist preaching about climate change, how wonderful our response to Covid is and a bit of sneering at non-Socialists. Disappointing. Avoid.

Long time listener. This program is one of the ABC’s gems. Listen to it while you still can. Thanks Robyn. You are a legend.
Keyclix via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/30/21
I came for science but instead I got poetry about emus wanting to fly, seaweed art projects, University politics, and endless sermons about climate change. A few informative “sciency” moments but generally lacking in substance.

This is really and truly my favourite podcast. I never ever miss an episode and despite having no science background at all I am always intrigued and enlightened by every episode Thank you to the whole Science Show team for adding to the joy and knowledge of life.

Nice?

The best podcast around for science news. I love the range of topics, the in depth discussions, and the interesting guests from around the world. I look forward to every new episode.
Groanman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/11/20
Robin continues to do a great job. I see several reviews critical of perceived politicisation of the program content. Surely it is within the purview of a general science program to discuss it’s political place in the world?
Idobon via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/11/20
Used to be great, but like everything’s on the ABC these days all roads lead to identity politics, great if that’s you thing but if science is your thing then look elsewhere
Groggy007 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/11/20
I love this podcast, Robyn Williams broad range of interests and knowledge, his style and humor, I look forward to it every week. And the music, the soaring music, Bach? CPE? Please let me know.

The Science Show has been running since the mid 1970s. Every week you get an informative and interesting coverage of various scientific topics. Definitely a great place to separate facts from internet disinformation!
JezzaSyd via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/07/20
Nothing to see here.
Randal Hall via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/19/20
I think it’s time the ABC sent Williams out to pasture, if I wanted a podcast on classical music and poetry I’d subscribe to it. Get the people in that do extras over the Xmas break and punt the old guy!
jim#22 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/17/20
The Science Show is one of the ABC’s gems, one of those that make the ABC our greatest national institution. Australia would be a much better place if politicians on all sides were required to listen to every episode. (Equally, they and in fact all Australians, should watch Landline). Both shows...Read full review »

Provides a good balance of detail across a wide range of scientific areas. Interviews with the people helping to shape science both in Australia and overseas. Well presented.

This science show is amazing soo many great things to learn! I would recommend this for all ages my favourite would be of course were did the moon come from?

Interesting subject but background music so annoying I had to stop listening.

I understood cruel methods used on testing animals was no longer allowed in Western countries.
L-#mog via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/02/19
It’s entertaining learning I wish school had of been like this show.
Wazza1234 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/14/19
This show previously covered interesting, relevant and current science topics but has now sadly devolved into just another piece of politically correct light entertainment. Sorry guys but you’ve lost my support.
keironlow via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/25/18
I have been learning a lot many things that I didn’t know till know.
laquel via Apple Podcasts · Mexico · 11/26/18
The Frankenstein episode is really well done, but in the film clips, why has the Mel Brooks version been mixed in with the Kenneth Branagh version without explanation or attribution? Weird way to do things.
Calijanthe via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/11/18
Been listening to this show for more than 20 years and love being able to listen when I want to. Robin Williams is a great presenter and interviewer, asking intelligent questions that tease out difficult concepts while always reminding us of the importance of 'blue sky' science, looking...Read full review »

Great show have been listening since 1982.🖖
Aus_geek via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/16/18
The balance of rigour, general interest, history and depth over a wide range of topics, from all over the world, make this one of the best radio shows and podcasts ever. Essential for anyone with a scientific interest in where we have come from, discoveries happening right now and where we might...Read full review »

I have a great honer to be one of your fan and I think the world needs more and more like Robin Williams.

Very interesting podcast. Keeps me interested the whole time! Love it!

Robyn Williams is a national treasure and the science show is my favourite podcast. I grew up listening to it and I still love science.
AGARR via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/08/17
Fantastic presenter and interesting content. The best of scientific news in a great package.

I love the broad canvas of information. Hooray for Robin Williams.

Great topics, a valuable listen, look forward to each new episode.

Robyn Williams has been doing this a long time and been delighted to listen to the Science Show for most of its time on radio. Particularly enjoy the PhD students talking about the fantastic enquiries and journeys they are undertaking. Impressed with how Robyn and the team communicate complex...Read full review »

Robyn Williams, the presenter, is quite knowlegeable, well read, and an excellent interviewer. He probes for depth and does not waste your time. Great journalism and very down to earth without talking down to the audience.
etherdog via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/17
Like all podcasts from ABC/RN, just great. So happy they provide a transcript - I can't count how many segments I've used as learning and test materials for my German university students taking our English for Scientists courses.Read full review »

I listen to a wide variety of English Language international science podcasts, and this is up there with Quirks and Quarks, The Naked Scientist, the BBC Podcasts, the Nature Podcast, and the AAAS Science Podcasts. Some of the Australian political content is perhaps not applicable to interational...Read full review »

The Science show is world class and does a great job of promoting young Australian scientists and research as well. Flagship shows like this are needed more than ever to make up for the gutting of our education system and public discourse. Hands off Robyn Williams, Michelle Guthrie, he has...Read full review »

chuck.d via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/27/16
Its very well produced and Robyn is an excellent host, been hosting this since science began (probably) and its an iconic show in Australia. Its subject matter is very very wide ranging: its a science show and not a tech show. That said, its highly enjoyable and you can skip the bits that dont...Read full review »
