In addition to covering all disciplines related to science and technology, Scientific American offers features on policy and experiments for the amateur scientist, along with commentaries on the impact of science and technology on society. Its "Working Knowledge" column demystifies the science behind everything from spacesuits to domed stadiums.

This is a worthwhile subscription. The only problem is that that the narrator is difficult to understand. He runs sentences together so that meaning is confused and is kind of annoying to listen to.
Great concise excerpts of current technology in a broad range of fields. The mispronunciations can be distracting, however.
Scientific American, one of the oldest and most prestigeous popular science journals today, is now available in a concise and accisble format. Each month, they publish their best and most interesting cover articles in audio format. If you're like me and never get round to finishing the paper edition, you'll love the audio version which makes it simple to follow popular science trends and research.
The monotonic voice full of mispronounciations rather spoils this.
Also Scientific American doesn't seem to work well without the illustrations.
