Science Podcasts: Best Episodes & Shows of 2020

Travis OsterhausLast updated on Aug 01, 2020
Science may not always seem the most approachable by the masses. However, podcasts have made research and science topics a whole lot more digestible and, dare we say... even fun?! Whether you want to know how to apply hard science to everyday life, listen to historical science stories, or be a part of the discussion about the power of breaking scientific developments. While you might be most familiar with shows such as Neil deGrasse Tyson's StarTalk Radio, an entertaining science and space podcast talking about all things in the universe, what are you supposed to do when you're looking for a story on science, space, human beings or universe-related podcasts? Look no further. We are excited to share different genres of science podcasts that you may not be as familiar with yet.
