Science Podcasts: Does your highschooler listen?

Recommended Posts

I know you asked for podcasts. I don't have one, but my dd15's favorite Youtube channel is The Brain Scoop.  She follows it closely.  It has inspired her to study biology and specialize in entomology. :)  She volunteers at the museum that Emily Grasslie works.  She's even met her. :)


So my 10 year old and I just sat and watched 2 episodes back to back. Thanks for the recommendation!

Dear Science. 




They take 'Agony Aunt' letters to magazines and re-answer them with science. 



For youtube channels:


It's Okay to Be Smart      (our absolute favourite)




Fantastic! Thanks for the suggestions. (Just watched It's Okay to be Smart video about CRISPR)


The link to the dear science doesn't work.

Oh, I'm sorry about that link. I have no idea why it wouldn't work.


Here's another way to find it: https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/dear-science-abc-rn/id1217345370?mt=2 


Alternatively, you try googling Dear Science podcast. It is an Australian production, so maybe that limits its availability?



Isn't It's Okay to be Smart fabulous? I have a nerd crush on that guy  :)
