Science Vs

4.8/5

Critic Rating

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.

Alice Florence Orr • PodcastReview.org Oct 25, 2023

"...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."

"...painstakingly sifts through the scientific literature to provide the best possible answers ....critique can get amusingly pedantic...That said, Science Vs is still one of the best shows out there, thanks to its rigor and admirable mission. ...like the puns, too."

"Wendy Zukerman, a rambunctious Aussie, knows her science, as does her co-host for this episode, producer Rose Rimler...Zukerman and Rimler are diligent about the science..."

"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. "

Aaron Tannenbaum • Yale Scientific Feb 2, 2016

"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."
