  • Everything You Could Ask For

    Very entertaining and well delivered, it’s criminal that this podcast hasn’t received the fame it deserves! Caters for both casual listeners and science enthusiasts, and I always leave with a greater knowledge and appreciation about it. Keep it up!

  • Best. Podcast. Ever.

    This is one of the first podcasts I ever tried and the one that keeps me trying more podcasts. Scott’s enthusiasm for the poisons, venoms, and toxins makes him a pleasure to listen to. I don’t under stand the second tier of higher science, but it’s still fun to listen to and I end up learning a lot of stuff. more
