    This entertaining podcast is presented by physicist Professor Brian Cox and comedian Robin Ince, who synthesise their talents to produce an informative and lively mixture of science and humour. Each episode features different guests - usually a combination of two scientists and a comedian - and the show’s structure often takes the form of a dialogue between scientist (usually an expert in his or her particular field) and comedian, with the comedian asking deliberately naive questions in order to elicit an enlightening response from the scientist.

    Extremely popular daily science show, streamed via YouTube and presented by Hank Green and Michael Aranda. Each day has a different format news (eg. Friday is Science News Day, Monday features a short video about our ‘Weird World’, whereas Wednesday’s video features longer, more in-depth investigations). The format is energetic, upbeat and engaging and the items generally well-researched, although one video on Genetically Modified Organisms caused some controversy and was taken down from the site after being criticised, as biased and inaccurate by science blogger Myles Power. SciShow made a new video Why Are GMOs Bad? in which they acknowledge the flaws in the previous film and present a more balanced case.
