It’s been a few months I’ve been addicted to podcasts since a peculiar mutation of my current lifestyle occurred: being often on the road commuting between Montreal and Ottawa, unable to find any time slot to sit down and watch TV, but always craving to learn more about the crazy world we live in, I went on the hunt for interesting shows to listen to, in hopes it would keep my brain active and not let it fall in ruins.

Everything started with Radiolab, a radioshow from the WNYC, a radiostation affiliated to the National Public Radio (NPR). Hosted by Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, this show discusses about various topics from a scientific and philosophical perspective, to which you add an interesting narrative structure and a fascinating sountrack.
