Aggregated reviews for Science in Action

The BBC brings you all the week's science news.

Pure, unfiltered, unbiased, science   (5/5)

If you’re looking for science that’s not watered down so you can be informed in ways the news media cannot offer, this is the place for you.


Everything is caused by climate change and CO2 is toxic deadly gas plus astronomy - that pretty much sums it up. Do scientists focus on real toxins on earth at all I wonder? How about new technologies to clean up the earth from industrial waste?

The BEST science reporting   (5/5)

The stories are timely and important. Roland Pease is an excellent science reporter. He asks informed, thoughtful and pertinent questions. I listen to several science podcasts and this one is the best. I look forward to each and every episode.

Amazing Science Show   (5/5)

It can be tough to keep up with the latest science findings, but this show has you covered. It’s a great recap of the biggest and most interesting science studies and stories, delivered each week. It goes into plenty of detail, great for science enthusiasts and curious minds in general. In many cases you get to hear from the scientists and researchers themselves. Sometimes there is overlap between this show and the BBC Inside Science program.

In my top two   (5/5)

Even if a segment has already been covered in another Podcast, I always find Roland Pease (adore that name!) will be worth listening to for his own insightful take on the subject.

Not bad...   (3/5)

Overall, I love this podcast and its part of my normal group. They cover a wide range of topics, always very interesting and informative. Unfortunately, they've started letting the producer get involved and she's obnoxious. It seems like they are trying to make part of the show more conversational, but it's a failed attempt. It was better when it was just the host and the interviews.

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

Great podcast! Love every episode of it.

Concise, exciting show   (4/5)

Good science excites the mind. A good science podcast does the same thing. This is a thumbnail sketch of recent scientific breakthroughs and conundrums which makes the listener say "Hmmmmm. That's funny. . . ." And go find out more. Isaac Asimov would be proud.

Great for science-phobes like me!   (5/5)

Thank you for making science so accessible. Love it!

Gudrun   (4/5)

If you are interested in science, this is a good program. Things are thoroughly explaned but never boring. It´s worth trying out.
