The Worlds Best Science Podcast - Bar None
This is how science should be podcast. Always interesting, down to earth, often funny and frequently provokes you to 'have a little think'. It's so good I've recommended to the BBC that you review the podcast and web site to see how things should be done. I very much look forward to my weekly dose of SOT, thanks to everyone involved.
