Science Podcasts: learn and grow strong!

February 12, 2007

I go to the gym a couple times a week – and I am amazed every time by the number of people motivated to Get Fit! Every exercise machine is taken, all the classes are full, and there are pretty much people everywhere. As one might expect, most are watching the televisions on their personal machines – but others are passing the time and being motivated by what is playing on their iPods.

The next time you go to the gym, try out one of the following science-focused podcasts, and Learn While You Grow Strong!
