The Best! ★★★★★ I cannot say enough good things about this podcast! I'm hooked. Listen and you will be hooked too!!!
Setting the standard ★★★★★ The Naked Scientists podcast team has been sharing approachable and relatable science topics with the world for over a decade! They have truly set the bar for science podcasts. Each episode has a theme (even if that them is Q&A) but they always cover other timely or interesting tidbits. This means each episode has many different facets and is worth listening to, even if the major topic is not your cuppa tea. I started listening a couple of years ago, starting with episodes from about five years back. Great road trip podcast; listen when cleaning the house, waiting for an appointment, on a plane or completing some other mundane task on which you do not need to concentrate.
Essential listening ★★★★★ No other podcast that I’ve found covers the full breadth of science news, along with in-depth conversations about the latest discoveries. I have friends who are actual scientists, and I am often more informed than they are about what’s going on in the science world thanks to Dr. Smith and the Naked Scientists team. I especially love the contributions of all of the female scientists on the show.

Outstanding Science Reporting ★★★★★ Dr. Chris Smith and the other Naked Scientists give me my weekly dose of science in fields that I don't follow. The story/science selection is very good and the show's staff are excellent reporters. The way they report on the stories keeps the show from getting dry, without trying to be funny.
FANTASTIC!!! ★★★★★ I've been listening to these podcasts for years, usually while I am hiking. Each one is informative and fascinating. What a wonderful way to inform the non-scientist about the phenomenal discoveries all around us. I love each of your host's unassuming manner, wit, and intellect. Usually when I return from my daily hike, I have been so absorbed, that I don't even realize I was exercising. Lots of times I wish I could recall everything discussed, but that is not possible. However, when a related conversation comes up with family or friends, I find that it all comes back to me. Thanks so much for helping me to be more informed. This is far and away my favorite podcast.
It doesn't get any better ★★★★★ This is by far the best science show podcast period. The big difference, and what makes this show so good, is that the staff are highly educated scientists themselves, with the abillity and talent to ask relevant and probing questions. Judge for yourself. Listen to a couple of shows of the Naked Scientist say compared to Science Friday. It's the difference between Chess and Checkers. The range of topics discussed and the level of discourse is fantastic.
It's a hit with me ★★★★★ Entertaining and very understandable. It’s 5 stars from me every time.
At a loss for superlatives... ★★★★★ Every once in a while you stumble on a gem that is so much more valuable than it may first appear - well the cast of Naked Scientist is even more than that very simple, inadequate analogy. They were wonderful from first exposure. Introducing science in the buff... I'm at a loss for for superlatives, so I'll just say thanks.
Best science podcast ★★★★★ Simply one of the best science podcasts out there. Full of humor and knowlegeable hosts.
