    "An entire podcast devoted to listening to the songs of birds. I'd find it relaxing. Wouldn't you? As an aside this is perfect for an audio drama I make. I love finding authentic background sounds for the story's sake. "

    The Paranormal Podcast
    The Paranormal PodcastExorcism and Dangers Of The Occult - The Paranormal Podcast 727
    "I love the idea of exorcists receiving psychiatric training to identify when it’s a possession, and when it’s a mental illness. The discussion here is interesting to listen to. I don’t agree with the religious conclusions, but I do like the idea of studying what demons, possessions, and spirits are at a scientific level. If they’re real, maybe one day we’ll know. "

    Hidden Brain
    Hidden BrainMind Reading 2.0: Why Conversations Go Wrong
    "The idea that people from different cultures have different understandings of how large the window is to invite someone to speak has never left my mind. It’s talked about in the beginning of this episode, showing how New Yorkers have smaller pauses and Californians have larger pauses. It’s a fascinating idea and I try to stay aware of how long people are comfortable with these pauses."

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.
