Guardian podcast captures the richness of ScienceOnline & science blogging

Bora Zivkovic

I just finished listening to Alok Jha’s podcast at Guardian about ScienceOnline. What a pleasure! Jha gracefully captures what drives science (and all) blogging, and what it offers readers — and writers  — that they can’t get elsewhere. Jha and his producers also convey beautifully the spirit and intersection of interests that makes ScienceOnline so special.
Alok also asked everyone he interviewed for their favorite blogs. I was pleased to be named by someone (not me! I  cited John Hawks). Here’s the whole list:

Mind Hacks by Vaughan Bell
Observations of a Nerd by Christie Wilcox
Neurotic Physiology by Scicurious

It’s an irresistible, highly pleasurable listen. Get there.
