Each episode is one hour long and includes a digest of topical science news stories, audience questions answered live on the air, a competition phone-in, and interviews with two or more guest scientists. These individuals join the hosts in the studio to talk about their work and to take questions live from listeners. Previous featured guests include the discoverer of the DNA fingerprint, Alec Jeffreys, the Astronomer Royal Sir Martin Rees, and the co-discoverer of DNA structure, James D. Watson.
The Naked Scientists were in the top 5 finalists in the 2006 World Podcast Awards and received two nominations, for "best produced" and "best science and technology podcast" in the 2007 awards.
Another claim to fame is the prodigious amount of bandwidth consumed by the programme's podcast, which regularly exceeds 4TB (terabytes) of downloads per month.
The show also won the Bioscience Federation Prize for Science Communication, 2006, the JOSH Award 2007, the Society for General Microbiology's Peter Wildy Prize 2008 and the Royal Society Kohn Award 2008.
The Naked Scientists also appear on TV Channel Five's panel game The What in the World? Quiz, and on 22nd September, in collaboration with the Open University, launched a new UK national radio edition of their programme, The Naked Scientists - Up All Night, on BBC Radio Five Live.
