Guardian science podcasts

I have been listening to the Guardian's weekly science podcasts. Most are informative, and at the same time, entertaining, especially if you enjoy British humour.

The one from the beginning of December included an interview with Dr. Chris Turney who talked about how radiocarbon dating demonstrated that the Shroud of Turin was a 14th Century forgery (this is, of course, old news) and his recent involvement in the dating of the bones of Homo floresiensis, aka the Hobbit.

If you like that, you might enjoy WNYC's RadioLab

It's probably the most interesting and entertaining science-themed radio program I've ever heard.
