Description of the podcast:
This is a science talk-show podcast. There are 4 major participants in this podcast, one of whom has been involved in other science Chinese language podcasts (for children and adults) including the 虹巴伦漫游科学 popular science podcast. The other three podcasters are a host from Itings FM, an astrologist and a botanist. This podcast is like a science party where each of them share their own professional insights and has a lot a fun.
What’s interesting about this podcast is that the location where they hold this “party” is not fixed. Although the podcast is mostly recorded in studios, they also record their show in locations such as in a zoo, on a mountain etc. In these places, they talk about the science of things and phenomena around them.
