One of my top 5 all time podcasts. And the best theme song in all of podcast-dom!

Although the weekly podcast is very long (2+ hours), it is a complete coverage on various scientific fields. I also appreciate their opinions on the scientific studies or topic, even if I do not agree, since such discussions make me think in 360-degree fashion. Thank you for an interesting and...Read full review »

Can’t stand being talked to as if I’m an imbecile on such serious topics. Format is terrible.

I've been listening Kirsten and Justin since late 2006 and pretty much haven't missed a single show. They are one of mine source to get sciency goodness-:) on a weekly basis and I love to be able to contribute and share science news I find with other listeners. Keep up guys, you've...Read full review »

I used to be able to agree and support the science of this channel. But some of the things that are agreed with on this show are very unscientific. The political opinions expressed on this channel are not science and seem to ignore the typical scientific path of finding evidence to support these...Read full review »

Great science podcast, I learn more every week.

Lovely Listner via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/24/20
I don’t understand everything there are saying cus I guess u could say I’m young but I love this show and learning about science over a huge span of topics and because of them I know so much more about our world and definitely inspired me to do and complete so many new and great things

Sadly, this “science” podcast has turned into a political bully pulpit and they’ve lost their way. I miss the early days of true science reporting. After submitting this review, I’m deleting this podcast stream from my library. Political pandering is intolerable, liberal or conservative.

I've been listening to this podcast weekly since the early 2000's. Dr. Kiki, Justin and Blair cover a wide variety of topics and bring in guests for in depth discussions. Never a dull moment. Love you guys!!Read full review »

Two smart women and then there’s Justin.
cornrobie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/19
Every week I listen to BBC Science, Skeptics Guide to the Universe, and TWIS. BBC does a deep dive into a topic. SGU provides solid insight into scientific methods and news, and TWIS releases a week in review that covers many topics. These podcasts complement each other in format and voice. BBC...Read full review »

I started listening to TWIS as an elementary schooler and I’ve had the privilege to follow this awesome show as it’s evolved and grown! TWIS is a wonderful and accessible way to keep up with science news.
gostaks via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/19
I’ve plowed through four episodes - I really am interested in the subjects they discuss. But while I am trying to hear the actual science parts, the discussions is always interrupted by the male voice spewing his inane chatter that adds nothing. He’s so loud and obnoxious - he’s usually wrong....Read full review »
Ivana Haffun via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/01/19
Two hours is entirely too long for a podcast. Episode length should ideally be between 30-60 minutes. The man’s voice is super annoying and the production is terrible. They sound like they’re talking from inside a can. Also, the structure is loose, rambling, and contains way too many things. It’s...Read full review »
daniorerio via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/22/19
I wanted to be able to like this as a weekly review of things I may have missed, but the terrible audio quality makes it very hard to listen to for extended time. The host that sounds like he’s intoxicated all the time is tremendously annoying. They seem to like to pound on similar topics every...Read full review »
Jdheoebehah via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/20/19
Occasionally produces new science. Global Warming is this podcast’s sermon. Every week you get another sermon on global warming. They preach about those who do not accept the scientific method of proving theories. The people that look for a science podcast accept the scientific method. They are...Read full review »
Martin Ellingham via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/19
These guys were podcasting before podcasting was cool, and haven’t missed a beat! They bring an hour+ of sciency goodness every week. They sometimes have interviews with special guests and respond to their fans (TWIS minions). Their three person team has debate, brings different perspectives, and...Read full review »

One, 2 hours is too much for a weekly podcast. I don’t listen as often as I’d like because of this. 90 minutes would be much easier to grasp but 60 would be ideal. But what TRULY takes the stars off is the dude. Holy mother of all things science is he terrible. His voice is grating, he...Read full review »

richardpruen via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/04/18
I enjoyed the information in this podcast, but the sing song baby talk of the hosts made it unbearable to listen to. I replaced it with the podcasts from Science Magazine and Scientific American.

I can’t believe that you joke about monkeys being tested for stress. Are you kidding me? We throw them in a cage, deny them everything natural to their lives, and then we INCREASE their stress levels? And you morons are laughing and joking about it? The Nazies did some great science and had no...Read full review »

Most reviews are 12 years old? Wow! Here is a fresh one. This is a very good and entertaining podcast, thanks to Dr. Kirsten "Kiki" Sanford, whom I have been following since her early days doing food science shows in her white lab coat and her nerdy glasses. Her team adds much and in a...Read full review »

It's a great show I listen every week, Gives me all the latest science news with a twist of fun and comedy. See -I used the word "twist" which is like TWIS- their acronym!Read full review »

Keeps me up to date and Kirsten keeps the goofing around at just the right level. Makes me smile while I learn at not too technical level about the latest. If I could change anything, it would be to tighten up the guest interviews, tighter interviewing to help the guest give the goods and leave...Read full review »

And I will probably be hooked for as long as those three keep it up.

Wonderfully educational , insightful and fun podcast. Every week I look forward to downloading this and listening to it in the car to and from work. The communicators in this show are really funny and entertaining whilst delivering informative new science news. Great work!

I tried so hard to enjoy this podcast. I am an avid science fan and podcast listener who donated generously to her favorite projects, but this podcast is a hot mess. Justin is unbearably obnoxious. He sounds drunk constantly, interrupts the female hosts often, and has no idea how to talk...Read full review »
DavkaDeerGirl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/17
I enjoyed this podcast until they said altruism is from religion. Seriously this was supposed to be a science show. Stick to the facts. I feel I can't trust what they are saying is science. Tossing a comment out like that is wrong. Sorry I've unsubscribedRead full review »

I’ve been listening for years. Completely invaluable to my life as a person that does not work in the science field but is still interested in science. Keep it coming.
Kloutkicker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/16
Having listened to this podcast from the beginning I appreciate very much the enthusiasm this group puts into each presentation. Basic knowledge of science is a vital underpinning of any progressive society. Science sadly is very much under appreciated in our society. The podcast has become more...Read full review »

On behalf of me AND my high school science kids (who love the random tidbits I get from this show), THANK YOU! This show is entertaining and informative.

There is nothing essentially wrong with the show; its informative and topical with a wide range of subject matter. Its the style of presentation that irked me.

Week in, week out - love the show and its ability to discuss science topics at a good level that anyone can understand. What science coverage in popular media could be.

The hosts are fun, sarcastic and caring...aka Dr Kiki, Justin, and Blair. I look forward to each episode to get perspective on the week's stories. As someone late to the TWIS party, I also appreciate the moment when I learn the meaning of their inside jokes. Those poor pandas and squirrels...Read full review »
