    Great Show
    Outstanding Podcast. The host is terrific. Younger than most but still, brilliant! Keep it up! Anyone who doesn't agree must just hate everything.
  • surogers76
    I couldn’t get past the microaggressions
    I really wanted to like this show, but in several episodes the host does things like ask people with foreign-sounding names where they are from, poke fun at their names, and otherwise act completely ignorant about culture and how to respectfully address people who are different than you. Somehow, I assumed this guy was an academic, but looking at the other reviews I can see he isn’t and that there is also right wing propaganda. I wasn’t willing to listen past the intros. Not worth your time.
  • Must'vergnjgc
    Love science
    Find interviews great
  • Astronerd32
    Grade A
    This is a Grade A science podcast! this is the best science podcast I've found. It's not overly basic or too complex... the conversations are easy to follow and very entertaining.
  • velocibaker
    Beware
    This is a thinly veiled anti science propaganda podcast. Fascinating to see how they try to sound scientific while denying science and pushing a right wing agenda.
  • foxcskid
    Self centered/opinionated
    Tried to start two different episodes. Jeez be nice if the guy could start on the subject and not his offhand, low quality opinions.
  • astrobeny

  • Billy Hafferty
    good content - awful host
    it’s kind of miserable listening to every single intro but once you get past that, the shows pretty interesting
  • Half Off Ponds
    Love it
    I really enjoy astronomy, the history and the guests. I like the off-the-cuff candor the show’s host maintains—it is a refreshing change to the straight scientific rigor methodology of many podcasts. What I would like to hear more about would be Lyman-Alpha Blobs or clouds as incubating galaxies and other types of rare things we do not hear much about. Can we hear more about things like M Theory, String Theory, some of the new thinkers creating new theories and physics, etc. Thank you for a great show, David.
  • PA196345
    Great stuff
    Timely discussions with top thinkers in physics. The interviews meander a bit, but that leads to really interesting explorations about all sorts of scientific topics.
  • BeTheChangeYouWant
    Grade A, 5 Star, 10/10 podcast
    Love it, just started listening. More episodes coming?
  • Toadgrinder
    This is a grade A podcast.
    It’s just that simple. Very easy to listen to and understand. I love the interviews and perspectives.
  • the n1ghthawk
    Grade A!

    Yep
  • anicknameisdumb
    Great, and informative, but a bit needy.
    I greatly enjoy this, as someone who as a kid, wanted to be a theoretical astrophysicist. The biggest issue is he constantly panders for 5 star reviews. I agree it’s a great podcast, but don’t seem desperate, or it will detract listeners.
  • scuba_guy
    Grade A podcast
    Brendan, Happy now ?! Ha ha Brenden has really come to become a very good interviewer. He always has great guests. He get them to explain complex topics to us mere mortals. He’s a little irevent at times but highly enjoyable.
  • DanAstro
    Love it!
    A great long-form science interview podcast! From black holes and gravitational waves, to a big questions in philosophy, this show does it all!
  • Daniel's #1 fan!
    Fun and educational!
    Really fun, great tone and interesting topics.

  • Holly Galila
    Great show. Hilarious host
    Very insightful show for individuals, both with and without a science background. I enjoy the astronomy and climate episodes the most. Incredibly funny guy. And yes Brendan, I honestly did think you died of COVID during your 2 month thesis hiatus....Very glad to hear your voice!

    Awesome Podcast!!
    This is such a good Podcast. I’d give him Five Stars (it’s really close 4.9999999...< Stars < 5), if he either wouldn’t mention the American President, or could at least be neutral. I do try to just fast forward through those parts, but it seems impossible sometimes. But hey, this is America right?! He’s got every right to freedom of speech!! As do I. So thanks for an almost Five Star Podcast Brendon, lol!! And I can assure everyone he does not give two ____’s what myself or anyone else thinks, which is another reason it’s a great podcast!!
