Recently some very good friends introduced me to the world of podcasts. I have been putting off listening to them because I didn’t think I had time for them, and didn’t think I would really enjoy them. This concept now seems very silly because I have always enjoyed a good talk radio show. After enjoying these shows for several months I decided to share my love of these podcasts with you. If you listen and decide you love them too please leave them a positive review and mention where you heard about them (especially with this month’s because I know she reads her reviews and it would be so cool if she read my blog).
This months podcast is:
Here is a link:
The premise of the show is that the host, Alie Ward, interviews different scientist about their field. it is really informative, Alie Ward is hilarious, and its so refreshing to hear scientists get really excited talking about what they love to do. It’s also really neat learning about all the different sciences that are out there. Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in what you are doing in your own field and forget that there are other people in their own fields equally as excited about their studies. Also, it’s really cute to see nerds get super excited about things they love.
My favorite episode, so far, is, man this is a tough one, probably a tie between the Paleontology and Phonology episodes, but really they are all very good. She is a wonderful host and does a fabulous job with this podcast.
Also, this one’s for you Alie, Boy Howdy is it good!
