    More! More!
    I miss listening! When will more episodes be made?
  • angry&gay
    This podcast really inspired me to become more interested in paleontology & broadened my understanding of other hominids! So excited for new episodes!

    Too long to develop
    The “clever” intros seem intended to draw in the listener. They work about as well as middle school essays, with “clever” opening paragraphs. Just get to the issue at hand.

    What’d you expect? Tiny Tim? 11/10 show
    Outstanding!! Just wish episodes came out with more frequency, but that is a good problem to have no? Folks love it so much we want more! Love the different hosts, their different flavors and POV’s, and subject matter expertise. Even that episode talking about the challenge of getting grants and a peek behind the scenes, very insightful and interesting.

    One of my faves!
    I love the Eons youtube channel, so it’s no shock to me that I love this podcast!
  • ok i need a nicknamb
    I’ve always loved y’all
    I’ve been watching your YouTube videos for a long time, this is my favorite type of science, mostly because of the questions we still (and may always) have. I screamed when I heard that y’all had a podcast just for the mysteries! I love the one about the fake bones, awesome. Thank you!

    Loving this podcast!
    I love being immersed in the imaginative world of the past at the beginning of each podcast and I love the info they share that helps me better understand the mysteries they’re discussing. I love what each host brings - all three rope me into the stories and make me want more! I’m writing this as their first season has wrapped - I’m hoping I won’t have to wait too long for the next!

    A Delight
    One of my favorite podcasts and filled with so much beautiful unapologetic nerdiness. Love everything about it!
  • sciencepyar
    Love podcast, one problem :(
    Love podcast and information. Sadly have to delete the female host has lisp and extremely annoying voice 🙁

    Haven’t Found Their “Thing”
    I’m a big fan of these creators and their YouTube channel, but this podcast seems like lower-grade fare than anything you can find on the PBS Eons channel. I don’t want to sound impatient, but I wish they would cut to the chase with the intros. They are just too long and overly descriptive, without adding much substance. I often find myself skipping the first 3 minutes or so because the host will summarize again once the little music jingle plays. It seems redundant and takes away around 1/5 of a podcast, being 3 out of 15 minutes just to give a round number. In a bad way, this podcast reminds me of the YouTube channels where people basically read Wikipedia entries and slap a couple of pictures together to make a slide show. For example: in the recent Denisovan episode, the location of the cave is described multiple times, in a way that seems like they’re just drawing out the time. Could we instead talk more about the specific adaptations Denisovans passed down to modern peoples, and maybe add some speculation in there? Bottom line, I’m tired of hearing info I’ve already learned, sometimes from the PBS Eons YouTube channel itself, in less detail on this podcast. There’s few fresh ideas or information, and little fresh discussion.

    Fantastic Podcast!
    I love everything about this show. The topics and content are great, its easy to listen to and doesn’t leave me with more questions than I had at the start of each episode. More, please!!
  • leif 200
    I don’t know how long you will take.
    I am 7 and I love this podcast.
  • Ash_blade
    Awesome show!
    As an anthropology major this is an inviting and captivating tale on our distant past. Every episode seems to draw me in! It’s informative and you can tell that the hosts are dedicated to their work and are passionate about the topic. Great content!
  • JRROwens
    Don’t be surprised that this podcast is amazing
    The PBS Eons team are devoted scientists AND storytellers. You can tell that they have a passion for communicating not dry facts but fresh living knowledge. And after nearly a half decade on YouTube, the jump to Podcasting is off to an excellent start. Think of it like when a famous chef opens a new spin-off lunch restaurant. Are you surprised the food is amazing? No. But it’s still a delight to get to try it for the first time.
  • Megafauna Rules!
    But is Blake single?
    So happy there’s a podcast version of the show!
  • ffwegegfetgarf

  • CAMarathonRunner
    Wanted: more frequent episodes
    Informative and interesting topics. Engaging narrators. Perfect lengths to keep listener’s focus while imparting most important, relevant information. Would love to have more frequent episodes than twice a month. Highly recommended for the science enthusiast.

    I love this but why WAS the y2k, WHY????
  • here4thegayratwedding
    Can’t wait for more!
    This is exactly the type of podcast I love, something that gets you wondering and trying to solve this mystery as you listen to it while also being the best blend of entertainment & education. I only wish I had more to listen to!
  • Mokomokosama
    Great work
    So far, so great. Engaging presentation with compelling focus on both the details and the big picture. Science communication is vital today, and this podcast shares the info and why we should care very nicely.
  • katenmkate
    The three episodes so far are really good. Thanks so much. Concise, informative, entertaining!
  • vestaflies
    Loved the detail
    I really enjoy this series on YouTube. I appreciate the times they get down to the details like telling us about the hole in hip & flexible ankle bones. It gets a bit fluffy & philosophically at the end.
  • Socroc10
    The episodes are very immersive and are so relaxing to listen to. I loved the first three episodes and can’t wait to see more from you guys and the interesting topics that you cover. I love your YouTube channel as well.
  • Bmacadooddle
    Great production and educational value!
    If you’re already a fan of Eons’ video content, you’ll love this podcast too! Short, sweet, bite-sized episodes with wonderful sound design and script!
  • stephboiardee1
    From YouTube
    I first stumbled upon this content from the YouTube short version. Period and I love the podcast and I just wanna leave a suggestion that maybe you could do a video form of the podcast on your YouTube. Anyways I love the Contant keep it up I’m a big fan!!!
  • cecone
    Fun for the whole family

  • ostioderms
    More mysteries
    I love eons and I think this podcast is amazing. I do really want is a episode about the big cat gap I would kill to hear that episode
  • wanting scholarships
    Good idea, bad execution
    Seemed like a good idea for a podcast and has great potential. However, it makes big picture claims that come across as rather surface level and degrade the rest of the story. (yes, it would be great if we could study the La Brea woman’s life not death but her “beliefs” aren’t something we have Evidence for so the question is a boring hypothetical) The podcast also insults the intelligence of its audience by presenting these fascinating events in a manner similar to children’s programming. (Why did you need to include the audience in the story of Piltdown Man? It felt out of place and geared toward the wrong target market) Seriously, you guys have gold on your hands bc this podcast concept is brilliant. However, unless these problems are fixed it won’t be listened to by the audience you are searching for.
  • Feyoria
    Already a Fan 🖤
    I’m a big fan of Complexly and the Eons team from over on YouTube and was so hyped when I heard they had a podcast! I love it already and Blake does a fantastic job as per usual! I’m so excited for all of the episodes to come!
  • 47$3!;!4
    great podcast but…
    great podcast, i absolutely love learning about new things i just wish the episodes were longer. i’d love to hear a deep dive of some of these things, other than that this podcast is amazing
  • khummingbird93
    Informative and fun
    I already love the videos posted on YouTube. The podcast is great so far and I can’t wait to listen to more!
  • Reviewer1234667153
    Hope to listen to more podcast soon!
  • xtjxv905628012
    There aren’t enough podcasts about paleontology/anthropology, and Eons makes it so interesting and fascinating!! I just wish the episodes were longer… keep the short tidbits for YouTube and make the podcasts more in depth and thought provoking for the grown ups. Love you Blake & Callie!!!
  • Brianhead
    Incredible Show
    I’m a fan of the Eons YouTube channel, but I was still surprised by how much I love this show. The science is fascinating, presented clearly, and the production values are amazing. If you’re at all interested in natural history you owe it to yourself to check this show out.
  • insommom
    More episodes!
    I’m hooked! Accessible, informative and thought provoking. Can’t wait till the next travel into Deep Time.
    Well done
    I really enjoy Eons on YouTube and this was just as entertaining. You painted a vivid picture for the story. Keep up the good work.
  • Memetic
    So far I'm loving this podcast! Give me more.
  • Bodhdncns
    Best Podcast I’ve Listened To
    I cannot wait for more episodes to come out! I was hooked from the very beginning and had just discovered the YouTube channel through other PBS YouTube channels I watched. I look forward to continue listening to what’s in store!
  • Percula1869
    Well done
    I really enjoyed the first episode and I’m super excited for what’s to come. The ancient past is my favorite subject so I’m happy this show now exists. The production quality was excellent as well. However I do hope they do longer episodes in the future. Their original YouTube platform is more suited to the quick 15 min summary of a topic. It would be nice if the podcast could really go in-depth and not dumb anything down, instead of just touching on the subject. Can’t wait to see what you guys do in the future, and thanks for bringing us such interesting stories from the past.
  • CerealChiChi
    Excellent in many ways.
    Whether it me the storytelling, music, sound effects, or the writing/presentation of the podcast, it is all epic.
  • brianna_pail
    Eons Finally has a Sauro-Podcast!
    So excited to get some more bite-sized bits (and maybe even some larger meals?) from Eons! I seriously love the team behind the show and hope they can garner more support from audio listeners. Absolutely check out their YouTube for more great work!
  • clwoodshop
    Off to a good start.
    I just listened to the first (and so far only) episode and I like it. Maybe with the podcast they will do longer episodes and really dive deep on the topic. Looking forward to hearing where this goes.
  • MagnumColt
    100/10 love it!!!
    I was absolutely entranced by storytelling and the attention to detail in the first episode. I love the YouTube channel so much, and now that this accessible as well, I’m going to continue my love and support for these creators!!!
  • Ken Hado
    Huge fan
    Genuinely the only time I’ve said, “oh thank god, they’re starting a podcast”. Excited to see what y’all have in store!!
