The Naked Scientists Podcast is a weekly podcast dedicated to communicating the latest scientific news and research to members of the general public. First aired in 2001, (making the show "one of the first podcasts to exist"), each podcast features interviews with scientists and discussion about a range of scientific issues. Some episodes of these hour-long podcasts feature multiple science stories and interviews, while others center on a single issue in great detail. For example, one recent episode (Forever Young: Can Science Reverse Ageing, released 11/28/2017) examines recent scientific studies into the science of aging. Another recent episode, (Paleo Ponderings 11/14/2017), features interviews with scientists and archaeologists about a variety of issues related to ancient and prehistoric history.
