    Voice & commercials
    The podcast itself is good; however, the voice grates on my nerves and there are too many commercials.

    Perfect for WFH
    Interesting stuff!
  • LizzieBusyBumbleBee
    Love this podcast- give us more episodes!
    This podcast is awesome! I just wish they came out with episodes more regularly! Iโ€™ve listened to the whole collection 3 or 4 times already ๐Ÿ˜‚

    For the everyday human
    Love this podcast. Such great information geared to the everyday listener. No hugely scientific terms to send you scurrying to find out what the heck these extremely knowledgeable people are talking about. I understand what Iโ€™m hearing!!

    Informative and entertaining
    I really enjoy this podcast. It teaches me a lot, and keeps me interested and excited for the next episode. Iโ€™d give it five stars... but I just canโ€™t enjoy this podcast 100% because of Amyโ€™s voice. I tried to like it, but I just canโ€™t. Maybe you do, and this podcast will be a 5/5 for you.

    Parenting win!
    Listened to the one about a country suing to get its artifacts back. From the backseat my ten year old yelled (without irony), โ€œThat belongs in a museum!โ€

    Love it so far!
    Iโ€™ve listened to 3 episodes so far but am enjoying it so much! Itโ€™s typical Nat Geo to making learning such a fun and wonderful experience!
  • the blob of death
    This is THE best science podcast Iโ€™ve ever listened to. Do a episode about Supervolcanos!
  • Jackie's Dad
    Really enjoy this thank you!

    Most Southern Tree
    Great episode. Made me think that one day there will be a branch of ecotourism that focuses on inclusion and working with citizen scientist in the field. Symbiotic relationship between ecosystems, researchers and citizens. A comment: they described the most southern tree among a landscape of shrubs. Horticulturally - Botanically speaking there is no differentiation between trees and shrubs as woody plants. If they found the most southern tree, where is the most southern shrub? That would be the outer - outer edge / layer of the Woody plant ecosystem.

    My favorite podcast!
    I love this podcast! I really enjoy that each episode is a different topic. Iโ€™ve learned so much and I look forward to new episodes even on subjects I wouldnโ€™t ordinarily think Iโ€™d be interested in.

    Enjoyable and informative
    I typically enjoy this series but the episode on captive tigerโ€™s in America was disappointing. I felt like their interview with the volunteer tiger caretaker anthropomorphized tigers when the point of the episode was to illustrate tigers are wild animals.
  • Bastardsack
    I love this show.
    But I give it a four star review because I thing itโ€™s main purpose is not to teach you, but to try to sell you things and pummel you with ads, and even more ads disguised as sponsorships.

    Such great story telling and fascinating subjects

    The Zombie Mice Of Marion Island.
    Season 1 episode 5. This is a masterpiece.
  • MaeFlower18
    I love the episodes. They are not too long and are always interesting. Even if itโ€™s something I donโ€™t feel Iโ€™d be interested in. And youโ€™ll always learn something.

    Episode 1 season 4
    This episode was hard to listen to. I donโ€™t understand why there wasnโ€™t more of a conversation. It was so many โ€œmmmhmm mmmhmmโ€. This completely took away from the story. Even as he was telling his story, it was happening in the background. I think I may listen again just to count whether there were 1, 2, or even 3 โ€œmmmhmmโ€.
  • D-B-007
    I am so very happy to have stumbled upon this podcast and I feel quite lucky to have been in a mood that I listened. Quality and just outstanding in every way

  • DrummerMom1
    Just enough information to make you want to find out more! Love the stories and how they are presented. Followed up on the internet to see what additional information I could find on some of these interesting facts!

    Always engaging and enlightening
    My new favorite podcast. I love the range of topics. Itโ€™s fun to feel like youโ€™re at the elbow of an explorer on the verge of some great discovery. Plus, as a subscriber, I love โ€œmeetingโ€ some of the writers and NatGeo staff.
  • katmm78
    So informative
    I love this podcast so much! I learn something new with each episode and the format and hosts/guest deliver the information really well and knowledgeably without sounding boring.

  • jnlabelle
    The best podcast Iโ€™ve ever found
    This is by far my favorite podcast. The topics are so interesting and diverse that I never know where theyโ€™ll take me next. I learn something every time I listen. The podcast is exceptionally produced, speaking, music, effects are all clear and crisp. They keep me interested while Iโ€™m running which is typically very hard to find something that can do that. I look forward to every episode. Thank you, Nat Geo, for this amazing and fascinating podcast! Please continue to produce such great content!
  • ksing88
    Great but
    Stop saying nat geo please

    I canโ€™t believe I just found this Podcast. Itโ€™s great! If you like high production value podcasts, you will really enjoy this podcast.

    Like a fly on the wall
    Have you ever wondered what The employees at Nat Geo talk about. Have you ever said โ€œ I wish I was a fly on the wall at Nat Geo...โ€ Well hereโ€™s you wall, without the threat of a fly swatter. I am a junkie of information, I LOVE stories about how they made the story. This podcast feeds all my needs. Neat tidbits of information on the how and oh so coolโ€™s , right down to the โ€œ You had to do WHAT...???โ€ I have always dreamed of working for Nat Geo and this podcast brings you right into the office and sits you right by the water cooler. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!
  • Love this๐Ÿ˜
    Love this!!
    So interesting! Who knew that there are zombie mice. ZOMBIE MICE. Or that the ancient Egyptians were not alone, that they had neighbors who also built large pyramids. Please make the episodes a bit longer.
  • Jack Andesite
    Nat geo
    I like this podcast itโ€™s very interesting except the Nat geo gets annoying they say it a lot in the podcast but I wish if they would say it every 2 or 3 podcasts
    Just listen! My favorite so far is the Harem Conspiracy!
  • nehakaore
    Sooo very informative and interesting! Love it
    They are really informative and it helps me learn a lot of nature and animals and how to help them better at my level, even though small.
  • TickledShark
    Itโ€™s perfect! I feel transported every time I listen!
  • k.a.t.a.r.a.
    super interesting!
    really interesting and not too hard to follow! they talk about a variety of topics so itโ€™s not hard to find something you like!
  • owlsrest
    Great shows!
    This is excellent work! So enjoy these stories. Though I agree - you are a stellar organization- the Nat Geo thing is a bit much..... perhaps NGS would be better?
  • Tym694680
    Great content but...
    I really tried to like Amyโ€™s voice but it wasnโ€™t working for me. Great content tho.
  • Miss Ginger 58

  • GSavs
    Good job
    Iโ€™ve been a fan since season 1 and I like this season with Amy a lot. She makes me even more excited to listen when the episodes come out. She is infectious!! I hope she has her own National Geographic podcast someday
  • bauswife
    Super interesting!
    Wish they would come out with more, but very entertaining. The first episode is still my favorite.
  • Lodithecat
    Great stories!
    Love the format and stories. Briggs has a great voice and style for the podcast. Keep me coming!!!
  • Jennifer 74799(2)
    Super interesting!

    I love it!
  • Medievalmave
    Great podcast. New host is not.
    I like thus podcast a lot. But the new host is not the best. The voice is too monotone and flat. She doesnโ€™t sound at all interested in the subject. I miss Peterโ€™s inflections. A female host is great, but maybe someone else. Iโ€™m listening to the beluga whales guests are much better at this.
  • MarcySmith
    Peter Gwin is a great host
    Fun and interesting podcast. Peter Gwin is a great host (not so fond of Amy...sorry). Looking forward to additional seasons! Keep it coming. I love listening.
  • football aholic
    Love this
    I love this podcast. I have listened to all of them and am now relistening to them all because my 8 year old discovered them and she is a big fan too. Canโ€™t wait for more.
