Great podcast! Love every episode of it.   (5/5)

Great podcast! Love every episode of it.


Too many cheap jokes   (2/5)

The moderator thinks that he is so funny, but he should keep most of the jokes to himself. The explanations by the experts are very interesting, but he keeps making stupid comments. It is ok to make a joke a two, three or may be four times during a program, but he must be doing like ten or more.


Would give this 6 stars.   (5/5)

Funny, smart, interesting, often sweet.


Always fun, never dull...   (5/5)

Dr. Karl is always a fun listen. Unlike other science podcasts, it's never dull. His healthy skepticism cuts through the B.S., and with a sense of humor. His enthusiasm for knowledge is catching.


Science at a personal level.   (5/5)

Dr Karl doesn't always get it right but he is often pretty close and always entertaining.


The best   (5/5)

Who wouldn't want to spend an hour or so listening to Dr Karl?


Make Yourself Smarter!   (5/5)

Doctor Karl doesn't know everything, and he is openly willing to admit that. If he doesn't know the answer to a question he says just that, so you can be assured that he isn't simply making answers up! I also really like the way that Dr. Karl and the host "Dr." Rod interact with each other and the callers-- very professional and fun at the same time. I listen to every podcast Dr. Karl releases (also check out his podcast from triple J)


Dr Karl and the Naked Scientists? HEAVEN!   (5/5)

I've been looking for more stuff on Dr Karl, since the JJJ weekly show for 1 hour just isnt enough. Bring on the Dr Karl tangent - you never know what you might learn. With these scientists uniting, you know this podcast will be great!


Informative and funny   (5/5)

This is my favorite Brit podcast. We the Americans should really learn from Dr. Karl's program and the rest of BBC podcast programs re: how to make the program informative, honest and funny. Awesome show.


Great   (5/5)

I love the show. Dr. Karl and Rhod are great personalities. As a bonus, sometimes they are joined by Dr. Chris Smith from the Naked Scientist. I would recommend this to anyone who has a curiosity for the sciences.


Superb   (5/5)

Interesting and informative. The hosts have great personality. If you like science you'll love this!


Gotta Love Karl   (5/5)

I fall asleep to this podcast. It's really interesting, and his voice lulls you to sleep


I ADORE his program!   (5/5)

I ADORE his program!


Laugh a minute!   (5/5)

We love to listen over dinner. The science is spot on and the callers can be very amusing- guess it's the late hour. Brings a little bit of Australia and Britain into my home. Ask everyday questions and Dr Karl gives a great clear answer. Great format.
