Science unscripted: For you, from Europe

The science stories that will actually change your day — and maybe make you laugh. Science unscripted is a podcast, radio show & YouTube channel driven by listeners. Hello from Germany :)

Weekly roundup — We're all over the place on this one

Do you know anyone who suffers from "drunkorexia"?

Or have a friend who "phubs" you? ("Phubbing" is when people look at their phones instead of their conversation partner.)

Or, when a video pops up in your feed and it turns out to be... kind of violent... is it OK to watch it? Does it change you — permanently — if you do?

Who are we? (And where are we?)

These are the kinds of things we explore on Science unscripted.

We're Gabe and Conor, two US science journalists based in the heart of Europe at Germany's international news broadcaster, DW.

Since Germany borders nine countries (yes, nine!), we're able to cross quickly into new places to connect you with stories and people you might not have heard of otherwise. Stories that actually matter.

That means you'll get a glimpse of what life is actually like in Europe. (And that doesn't always mean cafes or castles.)

Our weekly radio show is broadcast on stations throughout the US, Canada, Australia, Ghana and Seychelles — and other FM stations around the globe.

Our podcast can be found in… quite a few places:

Spotify - Apple- Google - Player FM- Deezer - Amazon- Castbox - TuneIn

We want to know what you're thinking about

We also have a new YouTube channel.

That's a great way to get in touch with us — right in the comments of a video (like the one below).

Another good way: Email us at

We read every single one of those emails (even the insane ones), and we do our best to reply to them, either via email or by reading them out on the air. Those messages change the show. And we love getting them.

So. What else is there to say?

Well, we obviously hope that you subscribe, or even give us a favorable review at some point.

More importantly, we hope some of the things you hear on Science unscripted will actually make your day (or even life?) ever-so-slightly better.

That's it. That's what we're aiming for with Science unscripted.

We hope you listen in.
