Blue Streak is your one-stop shop for science news, and entertainment.
We are passionate about science. But too often it's presented in such a dry manner that it would take a gallon of milk to wash it down. The fact is that science is interesting, political, frustrating, often funny, and always worthy of discussion.
Our goal is simple: have fun talking about science and to engage our audience…you.
Not only are you going to enjoy listening to the podcast, it's also going to piss you off…at least I hope so. I want you to spit your morning coffee all over the breakfast table.
