    I have truly been enjoying this podcast. I greatly appreciate balance of scope between episodes and succinctness and clarity within each and it is a great way to catch up and review multiple areas of science in order to assimilate more comprehensive holistic understanding of science and the building blocks of the universe as a whole. Thanks!
