Working out of Cambridge University in England, Dr. Chris Smith has been podcasting his one hour weekly radio show basically since podcasting started and he offers hundreds of podcasts on his feed and his website (TheNakedScientists.com) dating back to 2005. Each podcast episode explores a topic in science, technology, or medicine, and Dr. Smith interviews various top scientists on the topic throughout the show. With the show's popularity, their team has created a series of Naked Scientists Podcasts. But Dr. Smith's original podcast remains the most popular and is accessible to anyone as he seeks further understand and communicate the scientific news of the world.

The Naked Scientists Science Radio Show is an excellent podcast. It's a regular radio show broadcast by the BBC in England, and they've made it available in mp3 format. There is one main topic for each show, but the host, Dr. Chris Smith, sometimes goes off on tangents or fields questions on unrelated subjects from listners who call in.

Dr. Smith does a wonderful job of distilling complex scientific processes, theories, and issues into language that regular people can understand. That's not to say that this is a dumbed-down show; quite the opposite is true. But it is very understandable.

I like how they pick some hot-button political issues to discuss. For instance, one show was about stem cells. Stem cell research is a big debate in the U.S. these days, but how many people truly understand the science involved in this issue? Dr. Smith and his two guests did a great job of explaining many aspects of stem cell research. I am much more informed now than I was before listening to the show.

This podcast is definitely a keeper. I'm sure I'll learn lots of interesting things from the Naked Scientists.
