    1st time listener…great topics. draw backs = it sounds like the VIEW. Just cut the chase & talk about science. we don’t want to hear about your videocasts ideas, etc..

    • I beg to disagree with Jayshiv_r; part of what makes the show enjoyable to me is the free banter and off-topic asides! As the hosts often state, it really is a good discussion between knowledgable friends – and the beauty is that it really IS a free discussion, no staging and no rehearsal. Many deeply felt thanks to the hosts!!
