I wish more virologists did what you do!
Wanted to congratulate you guys on your website and radio programme. I am an HIV molecular epidemiologist, and I only wish more of us in the field did what you do - bringing science to the public and actually engaging others.
Hi the Nakedscientists, I just wanted to let you guys know that you have the best science radio show on earth.
I love the way you guys set up the show, and the website. I see it just got renovated. This version is much better than before. Thank you all, and keep up the wonderful job.
You are the best!!! =)
Your show keeps me in touch with my science roots!
Having crossed over to the 'dark side' from a Phd chemistry to
finance...your show has kept me in touch with my science roots while an expat over recent years - great job, please don't stop!!

Congratulations and keep up the good work!
Of the seven science podcasts I weekly listen to, the Naked Scientists is the single best! I like to listen while I'm on the go, taking out my dog or in the bus to work.
The level of the show, the quality of information, the choice of science stories, the interviews, and, very important, the touch of humour, make you stand out. I just discovered this website, which is fabulous.
Congratulations to Chris Smith for the more-than-deserved Royal Society Award for Science Communication!
Keep up the excellent work.
Hi Chris & staff,
I just wanted to let you know that the podcast regarding Charles Darwin's letters really left an impact on me.
The readings (and reader) really delivered the message regarding grave times, how Darwin was as human as the rest of us ( and indirectly how severely the use of the English Language has degraded since then ).
At the beginning of the podcast, when you said "we'd hear this in 'his own words'", I thought I'd actually hear a recording of Darwin's voice (which sounded illogical, since I don't think recording devices were around back then?) - the reader of the letters did an outstanding job. - His delivery is what made it so special.
These types of letter readings - *IMHO* would really make a great regular feature to your show - it gives us a glimpse into the lives, times, and the mental state of the great scientists of their time. It lets us all know that "the greats" struggled to get their message out and some of them probably didn't know how big their impact was going to be.
Interviews with some of the great living scientists would be cool too (i.e.: Jane Goodall), with them reading from their books, or early letters, etc.

I just wanted to say that I listen to quite a bit of different pod casts, and The Naked Scientists is by far the best! And it makes me smarter :-)
Thanks for good quality excellent edutainment!!

What an amazing service your offer!
Hi Naked Scientists
What an amazing service your offer!
I had no idea that you would forward the response to my question "Why do my eyes water when I choke on food". It's a great idea, because there was a lot of info to take in when you were saying it on the prog.
It's great to know that you prog is still going strong and that you have world-wide listeners.

Best show, I love it!
Best show! I love it!
I read the comment from Andrew from Russia and for me it is the same experience like he had. I am a German and I was searching for something to learn English. Nothing could really motivate me to listen for a longer time to English texts. But then I've listened to your show and until then (scince 1 year) I could improve my English skills a lot! In the beginning I could understand like 40%, now I understand 90%.
Please go on with this show for the rest of my life ;-)
You guys are truly the best science show I have ever listened to. I like that you don't over simplify matters, I mean that you actually use proper scientific names for those of us from a science background but still manage to make everyone get it. Keep it up guys!
