Speaking of interesting podcasts, check out the new Ranker Podcast! (Click below)



Ranked list of the best science podcasts currently available on iTunes and online, as voted on by science enthusiasts like yourself. Whether it's physics, astronomy, geography or biology, these podcasts shed light on fields of science and make them interesting for people who wouldn't necessarily love the subject. Science has become somewhat of a mainstream field of study these days, with The Big Bang Theory being one of the most popular shows on television, and the Facebook page "I Fu*king Love Science" having millions of likes from people who certainly aren't scientists. Don't worry if you don't have iTunes or a smartphone, as many of these are available to stream online via your laptop or desktop computer. Examples include "Brain Stuff" and "StarTalk Radio", but we want you to vote for your favorites regardless of how popular they are.
