In a previous life, I wanted to be a biochemist so I love reading and listening to things related to science. I also enjoy puns. Science Vs combines great science reporting with amazing puns to make a show about that sets out to debunk misconceptions people have about science. Wendy Zuckerman is whip-smart, funny and one of my favorite hosts in the podcasting world and she is able to tackle topics – like if organic food is really better for us — in a reasonable, intelligent and fun way.
