Science’s NetWatch & Podcasts

Every week for 9 years, Science’s NetWatch scoured the Internet for interesting scientific Web sites. You can look up reviews of the more than 1000 sites that have been highlighted between April 1998 and November 2007. The last regular NetWatch review was published on 2 November 2007, but occasional reviews continue to appear in the Random Samples section.

Science Podcasts: Science’s weekly podcast takes you on a tour of some interesting stories in the journal and on its sister sites. You can listen to these audiocasts on your own computer simply by clicking on the “Listen to MP3” links on the podcast announcements. If you use a podcast aggregator like iTunes or Juice, you can subscribe to podcast feeds to automatically download the files for syncing to portable audio devices.
