5 science podcasts to expand your mind

Podcasting is a great medium to tell compelling stories, tackle difficult investigations, and also to teach and inform. Whether the information is light or heavy, podcasts deliver it in a way that’s easily consumable whenever (and wherever) you feel you have the time to listen.

So, are you looking to learn something new? Interested in expanding your trivia night knowledge? Or do you just want to hear something really cool? Here are five incredibly informative science podcasts that will kick your brain into overdrive.

The Reality Check – 

The Reality Check is a weekly Canadian show that explores a wide range of controversies and curiosities by probing popular myths and exposing the surprising truth behind them. In a world awash with information, The Reality Check helps listeners differentiate fact from fiction, yet tries to strike a balance between providing entertainment and information. Born out of a grassroots critical thinking group who decided a podcast was the way to go – before podcasting was cool – TRC cuts through the “nonsense” using science to examine dubious claims.
