I liked it more earlier on when there wasn't long clusters of the same or similar topics. In the present form if you're not into the theme you basically have nothing of interest for months.

Interesting topics and well researched. My problem is with way it is curated. The frequent shift of interlocutors back and forth makes it hard to follow at times.

An exceptionally good scientific podcast. As a researcher of 7+ years, I am astonished about the accessible presentation yet highly accurate scientific content. The podcast quality is also very high, with audio and interviews.

Description

Unexplainable takes listeners right up to the edge of what we know … and then keeps on going. Host Noam Hassenfeld and an all-star team of reporters — Byrd Pinkerton, Meradith Hoddinott, and Mandy Nguyen — tackle scientific mysteries, unanswered questions, and everything we learn by diving into the unknown. New episodes drop every Wednesday.
