  • Are all Science developments connected to our fear?

    I’ve always loved listening to Science Weekly. It used to be a wonderful listen when I wanted to think about something other than the old average negative-focused news. However, since Covid started, the podcast has tended to mainly focus on news related to death, war, disease and crises. Is nothing positive going on in the science world? Does everyone want to listen to the same stuff they constantly hear in the news?

  • Ads too long

    The episode didn’t start until 2 minutes 45 in a 13 minute episode. I understand the need for ads but you’re taking the piss here.

  • 17 March - Covid cases on the rise

    Your correspondent, Nicola Davies, seems to have forgotten that Wales is also one of Britain’s nations. Throughout the piece she refers to case numbers in Scotland, Northern Ireland and England but never a mention of the situation in Wales. I assume that the Guardian realises that it has readers in Wales who’d be interested in knowing about their situation. Sloppy journalism.
