Blind Me With Science

What are some good layman-level introductions to science like chemistry, physics, biology, etc?

I was having a conversation with a friend about my high school science classes and what a debacle they were. We had a coach with no science degree or background teach biology. We had a crazy nun teaching chemistry and she set one of the kids on fire. I don't think we even HAD a physics class since I don't think it was required by the state.
So I'd like to learn something about each of those topics, but I need books (or videos or podcasts or whatever) something suitable for a layman with a...questionable level of knowledge in those topics.
