Science Show

  • Wide-ranging categories
  • Not enough podcasts
Have you seen the Science Show site? Produced by the Australian Broadcasting Company (ABC), Science Show is nothing if not sprawling. The opening page provides links to the most recent podcasts that can be downloaded. For “reader” types like me, there are also transcripts of each of the audio files. Interesting show titles include “The Science Show Versus God (Richard Dawkins interview)”, “Jane Goodall and Chimpanzees”, and “SILLIAC (Australia’s first computer)”. Science Show spans the gamut of science, with many offerings of interest to biotechnology. Categories of shows include Microbiology, Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Genetics, Cloning/DNA, Health, Infectious Diseases, Medical Research, Neuroscience, Plants, R&D, Stem Cells, and Vaccines/Immunity. Whew! It took me a long time just to look through all of the materials. Unfortunately most of the older shows are not yet in podcast format, but transcripts are available. If you’re looking for a one-stop shop for transcripts and podcasts, this is the place to find them.
