There are a lot of fads, blogs and strong opinions, but then there’s SCIENCE. Science Vs is the show from Gimlet Media 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. This season we tackle immigration, climate change, true love and artificial sweeteners.


In the age of fake news, a nice reminder that there are no simple answers

Ironically nearly every episode ends with more questions than answers, but that is the nature of science! I agree with one reviewer that sometimes the focus is on, in my opinion, the wrong questions for that topic, but all topics are analysed objectively and make you consider all the facts available. I'd love an episode on vaccinations, a topic which has seen an enormous amount of 'fake news', making it hard for the average person to know what the facts are.


Great Show, amazing host and perfect production! A treat every week!
Please keep doing the amazing work you're doing!

Great podcast

As a scientist, I am really enjoying this podcast! I like how they present the unbiased facts.

Totally amazing

This is one of my favorite podcast

Love it

Pretty nice podcast to listen to. Sometimes I miss some more sources to read it up myself but nothing that some googling can't reveal.

Did Gimlet Media became sponsored ?

Highly surprised by this new show from one of my former favorite media producer.
The angle they took with the shows I listened were highly biased toward industry, asking the questions that scientists agree on and are positive toward industry instead of highliting bigger doubts and trying to sort through them.
And it's not even that i don't agree with the results they come up with, i do, and they are legit, but they just systematically ask the WRONG questions. It's easy to advocate for something if you miss the elephant in the corridor and nobody is there to require you to answer that question.
Biased and unresponsible angle to me then, very disappointed by gimlet media now, I had be really seduced by Reply All and Startup which are still awesome shows. I guess I shouldn't expect them to such high standard for the future. So far from member shipping with them when I see that.
So pass your way if you're looking for a scientific objective and smart angle on things, this show isn't about that, and wrongly advertise itself as such. Bad job this time Gimlet, I'm sorry you aren't that amazing at the end.


Ein sehr guter Podcast. Vor allem gefällt mir, dass Wendy nicht voreingenommen ist, sonderen wirklich auf die Wissenschaft hört. Sowas gibt's leider nicht allzu oft. Sehr hörenswert!
