There are a lot of fads, blogs and strong opinions, but then there’s SCIENCE. Science Vs is the show from Gimlet that finds out what’s fact, what’s not, and what’s somewhere in between. We do the hard work of sifting through all the science so you don't have to and cover everything from 5G and Pandemics, to Vaping and Fasting Diets.

"...personally, we like a show that can discuss the science behind our sex drives right after an episode on affordable housing. Science Vs will appeal to fans of You’re Wrong About in tone and commitment to scientific rigor. Can you believe it’s on the same network as Joe Rogan? Now that’s a crossover we’d like to see."

"Science Vs is a fun, peppy, nerd-empowerment program that takes a research-driven lens to an array of intriguing questions about things like sharks and dinosaurs as well as less expected stuff like, hey, is monogamy unnatural?"

"For those of us without a science background, Science Vs is a fun, well-balanced resource to help us understand many of the challenges we face. With the help of science, we can have the confidence to make informed decisions about the coronavirus, police violence, vaccines, and so much more. "

"Despite its name, this podcast is not only for the scientifically-oriented. “Science Vs” is a terrific choice for all who are curious about the world and who would like to train their minds not to believe everything they hear. Not to mention, it is perfect for anyone who would now-and-again enjoy calling out their less-discerning friends for conflating fact with fad."
