Science Podcast

I typically enjoy listening to Podcast while I am working in the lab. Some of the ones I generally listen too include the Naked Scientist, Nature, NOVA ScienceNOW, NPR: Science Friday, Science Talk, the Onion Radio News, and I just subscribed to USGS CoreFacts today (saw that on someone's blog, just can't remember whose it was, sorry!).


So, what Podcast do you listen to. Can you recommend anything?

Nature is the only science one I listen to. I love Scott Sigler's podcast-only novels, and I listen to Dan Klass' "The Bitterest Pill". I also listen to "Clamouring To Become Audible", but I wouldn't recommend it. The guy who does it is a bit of a knob... ;-)

LOL!! I Might just have to check it out lol! Aren't you on the radio somewhere every now and then? Is that podcasted?

Julia said...

Not yet, but I'm going to get a CD of all my "finest" moments, and then I'll probably podcast them with an intro and outro.

ReBecca said...

Awesome! That would be cool!

I highly recommend Skepticality, which is a podcast dedicated to science, skepticism and critical thinking. I suppose I could plug my own podcast, Random Signal, but that would be lame! ;)

I actually have plans to start a paleo-focused podcast...I just need to make the time. Once I get that up and running, I'd love to be able to call on the paleo-blogging community to help spread the word.

Cool thanks for the heads up on those! If you do start a paleo podcast let us know so we can spread the word!

Thanks for mentioning the USGS CoreFacts. We're definitely excited that you like and appreciate your blog entry. It's great to see our work getting out there. We also encourage anyone to send us questions they might have as well that we could possibly answer as another CoreFact. While I'm here, I'll put in the "shameless plug" for the USGS CoreCast which is our more in-depth science podcasts that you may also enjoy (usgs.gov/podcasts).

Thanks again for taking an interest in the CoreFacts! We appreciate you listening.
