The Naked Scientists

Very good podcasts

It is the the Science that is naked, not the scientists :-)

Mainly hosted the BBC but also found in Australian and South African radio there are a whole range of pocasts out there. My favourites are "Naked Genetics" and "eLife" but do try them all. If you have a vague interest in science some will work for you

For people (like me) in the Usa, here is a link:
http://www.thenakedscientists.com

That gives a menu of recent podcasts. I chose one which happened to be about the brain, and clicked on it:
http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/ ... /20141119/

There is, I think, an MP3 audio recording, and also a transcript if you just want to skim it, read a bit to see what it's about.
Here's a sample:
==quote==
In this edition of Naked Neuroscience
Full Transcript[link]

02:40 - The future of neuroscience research
How will brain findings shape future societies? Will we all become part machine? Is there a dark side to brain research?

18:33 - Putting neuroscience on trial
How brain findings are being used to help convict, or acquit, individuals in the courts of law.
[There are links to the two sections separately, or you can listen to both consecutively]
==endquote==

Ive heard about this group. They appear to be based in Cambridge. A good resource. Anybody have favorite podcasts by them that you want to share links to?

I've been meaning to check out their podcast. Maybe this'll give me the incentive.

I enjoy them as well. I first found them back when I used to play Second Life. They would have a whole gathering inside the virtual world where they would broadcast the show live. It was a neat experience.

btw: welcome back to the forum goingtothedogs. I have read many of your old posts since I started participating more often this past year and noticed you hadn't logged on in a long while.

You're welcome. Glad to hear you enjoyed it

A couple of years ago the BBC decided hat they didn't have time in the schedule for 'another science program'and they were going to cut it

Chris Smith who is one of the presenters/organisers launched an appeal by podcast that all fans of the Naked Scientists write in to the BBC to protest. He succeeded in getting it reinstated
