ABC Oz A whole set of science programmes/lectures - Big Idea, By Design, The Science Show, Ockhams Razor. Usually GW evangelical. Thankfully abcnewswatch exposes & Counterpoint is there to put contrary views.

Canada Radio good list of all CBC podcasts
- Ideas : 8 lectures about Thinking about Science
- Quirks podcast worth a check sometimes

- manchestersciencefestival Podcasts

- OPINION I prefer the British shows which are more serious about the science & the humour sophisticated. Whereas the US shows are a bit too folksy, talk about themselves too much instead of the issues & let in a lot of weak science.

- Speed tips - North American shows waffle so I usually listen to podcasts at 120% speed, but with Brit/Aus I often listen at 90% speed. (strangely some people sound sexier at that speed)
GW= GW evangelical Many shows take the line "see another effect of climate change ! everyone believes".
- A few others are more pragmatic. (thank God)

D Grade
- The BBC /ABC are very good, because of their experience and professionalism, but there are some podcasts which seem very amateur, they talk about themselves too mundanely and bang on and on about Global warming ...these progs are unlistenable to me unless there is a special topic
- This Week In Science GW
- Skepticality GW, FB
-OZ Skeptics VODcasts most files too big/slow
-BBC Science Magazine monthly - too amateur
- selected shorts PRI on NPR - very American very PC I didn't like
- everydayscience sponsored by Bayer - no longer programmes
- seems 2001
- SGU recommended, but I didn't find it that good
- The Independent recommended This American Life, but it's nothing compared to the quality of radio outside the US like BBC and ABC Oz correspondent programmes
