Always a good listen
Reviewer ckazilek

This is one show that always has some great content. I look forward to Fridays.

Solid content; some discretion advised
Reviewer jct405
 September 17, 2007
An earlier reviewer's critique labeling this program 'poor science' was based on one program. One would have to agree with him that it is frustrating to waste time listening to shoddy science. But do not throw the baby out with the bathwater. Mr. Flatow has interviewed many, many good scientists along with a few nimrods. His recent interview of Jonathan Graff is one darn good reason to listen regularly. Graff's team at UTSW has published a stunningly important finding: a gene that regulates fat accumulation and metabolism in organisms from fruit flies, worms and mammals that could reasonably (given the current findings) turn out to be the cure for diabetes. It has all the markings of rigorous scientific investigation. And what is more interesting is that the major media has yet to pick up on it. Good work, Mr. Flatow! Yes, screen out the nimrods. But, wow, keep this stuff coming. Thanks.

There is really something for everyone in these shows. From leeches and stem cells, to new planets and weight reduction surgery, Science Friday covers a wide range of topics in layman’s terms. The host’s inquisitive and direct questions dissect the issues and help to shed light on the mystery of everyday and esoteric science and related issues. Never boring and always chock full of info, these are a great listen.
