It's Only Science
About This Show
"It's Only Science" is a podcast from the editorial team at Discover Magazine. Every week, we get the band of nerds together to talk about science. We might discuss the news, play some games or just share something that blew our minds on a given week. It's basically show-and-tell with a science hook. We don't take ourselves too seriously, so join us and have some fun.
