1. GREAT POD DAN!!!! - I really enjoy this podcast, especially when he says something on the complicated side. Then he’ll explain it in a way that you or I could understand. I think that more people should listen to this, I get really excited whenever I get a notification that a new episode came out! Overall, great pod, Dan!
2. One star for Dan attacking Sabine H. - You should be ashamed of yourself. The whole point of science is to question everything, not to beaten into repetitive submission. What exactly has theoretical physics done for us? Wireless communication? Wow. We had that in the ’s, and look how that has worked out for us. You high paid academics and the rich in your ivory towers are so disconnected from reality. You are a cancer to our society, an inert mass stealing nutrients from those who actually produce value, that will eventually kill us.
3. Draws a perfect and fine line… - Between something presented as understandable to the layman, and something tear-bringing boring to someone who knows anything about it. I’m not an astrophysicist—or even a physicist—but I have done some collegiate level study, and much more reading on some of these subjects. This podcast is gripping, informative, and not too technical to understand.
4. A Digestible Encyclopedia of the Most Exciting Parts of Physics - Few podcasts offer the tremendous opportunity to learn about something so fundamental to this universe yet also so hidden to most people. Dan Hooper and Shalma Wegsman offer a dynamic approach to learning some of the most interesting and mysterious physics concepts. What sets them apart is a clear podcast model that optimizes both interest and educational value. While Dan Hooper’s theoretical physics background provides a wealth of knowledge about black holes, quantum physics, and string theory, Shalma Wegsman has a unique ability to make the deepest insights into the universe more accessible to those without a physics background. If you didn’t fully grasp what Hooper is getting at, Wegsman is often right there to summarize his point in words a bit more palatable. Wegsman is also able to synthesize points via poignant questions that guide the discussion to interesting…event horizons. This podcast is an absolute gem. Our society is a better place because of it. Many thanks to you both for your continued efforts.
5. Very educational and entertaining - I’ve had a life long interest in astronomy and cosmology, indeed all of science. As a retired chemical engineer I finally have time to catch up on some of the amazing scientific advances in recent decades. I’ve found this podcast to be one of the best at helping me catch up. I think the most amazing thing I’ve begun to appreciate is the the close connections and interactions between particle physics and cosmology which this podcast does a great job at doing. It’s remarkable to consider ideas that span the spatial dimensions from the very smallest to the very largest. The podcast topics also range from experimental to some of the strangest theoretical ideas. The hosts deliver the content in an engaging and understandable manner. Thanks for the effort and keep these coming.
6. Better than your average physics podcast - By far the most informative podcast about physics I’ve come across. Why is this one of the best? Most other physics podcasts only touch on the concepts, you can go between them and routinely hear all of the same topics (ex. How general relativity isn’t comparable with quantum mechanics… ext.). This podcast is different. They cover such a wide range of topics and go into the technical details. This is awesome if you’re really interested in physics and you’ve heard most of the general theories and topics. I hope this podcast persists well into the future.
7. Vocal fry, valspeak, uptalk - Shalma (female host) has a speech pattern that is most annoying. She has the habit of producing a rising inflection as if she is asking a question -even when she isn't. Also she doesn't seem to talk into the microphone, her voice sometimes goes into whisper mode and I can't even her what she is saying. She is terrible as a host, not a professional. But Dan is fantastic!! Great voice, speaks clearly and projects his thoughts cleanly, concisely. Just have Dan and this is a star show for sure!!
8. Like Shalma is like a like an aspiring physicist? - It's hard to believe that someone intelligent enough to study physics at the graduate level can't string together a sentence without saying 'like' every other word. Maybe they thought she would appeal to a younger audience or the average lay person, but I find that along with her vocal fry unlistenable.
9. Good show - I’m more a Physics Frontiers listener- but they have a very irregular posting schedule. I’d like more GR in my ideal fantasy podcast but this one is well done, interesting, and thought provoking, which is what good science should do!
Keep up the excellent work. Make lots of more shows so I have something to listen to, please! While Jorge and Daniel Explain the Universe is good, I feel they’re less rigorous and more commercial. And Sean Carrol is great, but spends a lot of time outside physics. You’re the best of the most consistent podcasters. Don’t ever stop!
10. Thanks you (and a comment) - I love this show and I’m in awe at all the work you put into it! I’m a fan of physics podcasts and this is one of the best.
Just one comment: is it possible to turn down the music (or avoid it completely) for long segments when someone’s speaking? The high volume is very distracting and the bass and percussions of the jazzy music make it hard to follow the speech. Thank you again!
11. A step deeper than other pop sci podcasts - If you listen to other podcasts on popular science, you find that after a year or two you hear ideas repeated many times, and learning something new becomes less frequent. This podcast probes astronomical concepts at a basic enough level to understand if you’re scientifically literate but deeper than you hear in most popular podcasts. It’s exciting to hear these concepts taken to the next level after skimming the surface so many times.
12. Engaging, enjoyable physics - As a casual fan of physics with no real aptitude for the hardcore science and mathematics I thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. Dan has a way in his books and now podcast of speaking about very complex topics in an entertaining and engaging way for non-physicists. Highly recommend for anyone that wants a glimpse into the mechanics of our universe.
Ever wanted to know how music affects your brain, what quantum mechanics really is, or how black holes work? Do you wonder why you get emotional each time you see a certain movie, or how on earth video games are designed? Then you’ve come to the right place. Each week, Sean Carroll will host conversations with some of the most interesting thinkers in the world. From neuroscientists and engineers to authors and television producers, Sean and his guests talk about the biggest ideas in science, p...
Release date: 2023-03-20
1. Giant :) - Scientists don't often step outside their field in order to engage in dialogues that are of the essence, evermore so during times of worrisome turbulence. Dr. Sean Carroll does not only step outside his field, but is acutely cognizant when doing so. His conversations are similar to the conversations from "Dialogues concerning two sciences, between Sagredo, Simplicio, and Salviati". In other words he is not shy for when he lacks knowledge on certain subjects and is courteous when correcting others. He has calculative approaches towards crucial conversations. Scientists, I hope are paying attention to the importance of having conversations among different sciences and opening the doors to other fields, specially to the ones that aren't related to their science.
2. Very interesting and mind expanding - I’m an evangelical, but Carroll’s analysis and explanations of physics and philosophy are always beneficial and challenging. His irenic tone is also greatly appreciated. I feel challenged, not attacked or insulted. Only feedback would be that Carroll’s political opinions are much less interesting. To be fair, he often gets asked questions and has every right to talk about his political opinions on his podcast! I just find other left of center political commentary more robust and rigorous than what is on offer here. Still an EXCELLENT podcast, though!
3. Purely Genius - A purely amazing podcast that actually explores ideas in a rigorous, but also fun way. It’s not just science, it’s about society and politics too. And Sean Carrol brings on expert who bring forth both empirical and hard evidence. Yes there are well-informed opinions on this podcast and that’s a great thing too, we love to hear em. Society and science are interrelated and that’s why I love Sean Carrol’s podcast
4. It’s still called “Mindscape” - I’ve been listening to this podcast for almost years because I enjoy the variety of topics and guests, and Sean is a adequate interviewer. The format is less open than some of my other favorite science pods’ but the tone remains conversational. I never miss an episode!
5. Great but… - Needs some diversity on all metrics. So tired of hearing the opinions of the rich, spoiled, over privileged, “weird,” entitled class. Why don’t you get some perspective from the drug addled slaves that keep this horror show of society going. Maybe they have some real life experience and solutions as opposed to these self aggrandizing, masturbatory, nebulous, abstractions of a farcical attempt at conversations. Pretty good though.
6. My favorite podcast hands down - I have NEVER in my life been so eager for Mondays to arrive. I get so much out of this podcast in terms of pleasure, knowledge, perspective- I just love it. I plan on supporting Mindscape via Patreon as soon as I can. Not only bc it deserves my support for how much I enjoy it but also because, selfishly, I’m dying to ask Sean questions on his AMA episodes! But until then, this review will have to do. I recommend this show to everyone I know. Thanks Sean!
7. Kind and Thoughtful - This podcast has a wide variety of topics, leaning into science more than others. The format is simple and without a lot of post production, relying on the conversational skills between the host and guest. Generally, I find the shows very interesting and enjoy the content and think I learn a little bit with each one. The most impressive feature of this particular podcast, however, is the civility and genuine kindness demonstrated by the host toward everyone. It is quite uplifting to be the proverbial fly on the wall and witness such a wonderful example of how to treat other people.
8. Falling victim - As a fellow scientist, and someone who considers themselves fairly left, it’s very disappointing that one of my former heroes of quantum physics has fallen victim to the extreme left systematic academic elitism. I’m sad for the future of what science will be. It will be post modernist and no longer objective. The magic of learning what’s behind natural processes will be lost. It will all be political and about cowardly attitudes in the face of an ever expanding collectivist groupthink. You should never say censorship is good. Private company or not. Period. We have protections and a constitution for a reason. Hope you do better on the future
9. Mindscape mindblown - I don’t share Carroll’s almost infinite interests, but I cannot deny they are great interviews. The interview with Dr. Natarajan - with a subject I am interested in- was worth subscribing all by itself.
Great podcast, worth your time, and if you have the $- your support. I want more time and space episodes but even areas I don’t get (that topology episode) are at least entertaining.
10. Life changingly awesome pod - I’ve been listening to Mindscape basically since the beginning… and in the ensuing -ish years, my perspective on what it means to do science and ask (and answer) questions about our world has grown radically and for the better. If you’ve ever wanted to have the world’s experts musing in your living room, then this pod is for you. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
11. Exceptional! - I came across Sean Carroll’s work through Rogan’s podcast. Physics has always intrigued me but felt mysterious and understandable to a select few. I was mistaken, and I wish I could have crossed paths with more Science teachers like this. He clearly has a gift for teaching and speaking, and that translates well through this Podcast. This is not an easy skill, this is elite level with very rich material! There is much more here than physics. The host does a thorough job, and you are learning with him when he explores subject matter where his expertise doesn't crossover. Great Podcast!
12. Most nourishing and mind opening podcast - Sean Carroll has always been great through his books, interviews and presentations. But the podcast is at a different level. Is just fascinating to see the quality of guest and the infinite ways Sean engages. Depth and breadth of both Sean and the guests that check in is profound and makes one feel elated and armed with knew knowledge and tools. Simply amongst the best podcasts.
13. The Best Intellectual Podcast Around - If you like science, philosophy, or other brainy subjects it doesn’t get better than this. The topics are interesting and fashionable, but the guests and Sean really know what they are talking about and avoid the pitfalls popular science. I really appreciate the most recent episode on Lacan. It’s time to put the “postmodernism” boogeyman of the science wars behind us and appreciate continental philosophy for what it is.
14. Always great - Today’s episode with Reza Aslan is a great back and forth discussion with both gentlemen further clarifying their stances and leaving it as an almost to be continued feel as though each felt he was on the precipice of “turning the other”. I know they were simply having a discussion in which they were each doing their best to absolutely understand each other and dig into the very core of their beliefs. Highly enjoyable.
15. Satiety & Madness - David Zierler, Oral Historian for the American Institute of Physics said it better than I can at the beginning of his interview of Sean Carroll Zierler, “This is so exciting because you are one of the best interviewers out there, so it's a unique opportunity for me to interview one of those best interviewers. So, I'm really quite excited about this” Above all else there is always a very coherent flow with Sean interjecting frequent summaries and questions when more clarification is needed He does a lot of work during the interview He provokes emergent varieties of satiety as well as emergent varieties of madness within me I love that type of mental anguish where you are forced to pause and consider, the tapas point
16. It otter be higher on your list if it’s not at the top already - A wonderful podcast that consistently has intelligent discussions on a wide range of interesting topics. Amazing guests and science science science. I learn something every episode. Tell all your friends (and non friends too bc everyone can gain from this podcast)
17. Sean Carroll - best use of your time possible - Sean’s ability to explain topics with a coherent and steady narrative is incredible. I wonder if he even knows how talented he is. Seems to me that there’s no straight line to understanding quantum mechanics but Sean more than does his part to put it all together and make you appreciate the wonders of everything (also, nothing).

1. Only remaining in depth treatment of science - In recent years almost all scientific podcasts have tended to dumb things down as time progressed to the point that even professional scientists found some of them incomprehensible. This however is not true for Quanta magazine which has kept up standards of high quality information that covers the nuances and the logic behind the important issues and the evidence that supports the evolving views of all kinds of disciplines of fast changing science. This is truly scientific reporting done right and the measure by which all other scientific reporting should be measured today in the ’s.
2. Exceptional content and delivery - Quanta Magazine was a new discovery for me in and I’m in love with the content and the way it’s delivered. Beyond educational, it’s the entertainment that keeps me equally engaged. The podcast supplements the magazine by providing bite size articles. I find myself eagerly awaiting each podcast. This is top notch!
3. Fascinating and informative fun! - Quanta magazine is probably the best and most important science magazine around. The articles are Clever, detailed and legitimate science not just “gee whiz, look how brilliant we all are.” The writing is top notch and the podcast is like a second dessert filling in the details with a more human touch. Truly this is the modern model for podcasts in this genre and is destined to win awards just like the written magazine has!
4. Excellent podcast - This podcast does a great job at including enough detail to allow for an understanding not only of the subject under discussion but of the larger context of the research. Though fluff pieces on science have their place it was sad to see some negative reviews of this podcast by people who apparently expected such fluff pieces here when, in my view, this podcast (and magazine) has a completely different, and welcome, aim.
5. Great content - unbearable delivery - I love QuantaMagazine online so I was excited to see a podcast. However, the presenter's reading style is too difficult to listen to anymore. It's as far from natural speaking as you can get, clearly just reading from a script in a painfully stilted manner. Unfortunately I won't be listening again until they get someone else to read/speak.
6. Great way to learn about current science! - This podcast serves up a dense, but digestible, helping of science. You'll stay up to date on the latest goings on in a wide variety of scientific research fields. Topics are explained very well without feeling like a dissertation. I recommend this podcast for people who like Inquiring Minds or Startalk, and don't mind digging in to topics a little deeper.
7. My favorite science podcast - A great mix of topics, at a level that is a little higher than most science podcasts. Lots of shows about math, which I love! The presenter is very pleasant to listen to. My only suggestion would be to check pronunciation of all foreign names, since many are tricky. Some examples I've heard: Fermat (should be 'Fer-mah', the 't' is silent), Gauss (rhymes with 'house'), Von Neumann (should be 'Von Noy-men'). Not a big deal, though! Overall, though, this is a great series! Thank you!
8. Presenter struggles - I really enjoy Quanta the magazine, but the podcast is very difficult to listen to. It's not so much that the presenter reads in monotone, because she does make an effort to emphasize certain words, perform vocal inflections, etc. But the pacing is so off. Like, she doesn't pause at the end of phrases or sentences like you would ordinarily expect someone who is reading aloud. In audio, that's very important because the listener relies on the narrator for those queues. It's very strange. Perhaps additional coaching or they can find someone else to read the articles - in the meantime I will be unsubscribing.
9. Great podcast - As a scientist, I really enjoy this podcast. The material is fascinating and covers topics not normally seen as “sexy” in a lot of popularizations of science. They do a great job with attributions and making sure to get several views on a subject. It’s not meant to be funny, so I’m not sure what the other reviewer was expecting. They do a great job turning the science into a story, and in that way it is very entertaining. Overall, these are extremely informative podcasts. A scientist or science enthusiast would likely enjoy these. Please keep them coming!

1. Flamengo episode was an eye-roller - As a white heterosexual male, I guess I should feel terribly aggrieved by the oppression of those scary feminists, at least according to Professor Flamengo’s worldview. I don’t know, I seem to be doing just fine, as are most of the other men I know. The whole “anti-feminist” pose just seems a bit silly.
2. Interrupts his guests - I like Lawrence Krauss because he is a smart theoretical physicist. But I just can’t listen to his show anymore. I understand that interjections are a normal part of conversation when you talk to your friends, with an occasional “uh-huh” to show that you are listening, understand, and/or agree with your friend. Lawrence does it so frequently that it’s absolutely distracting; especially on a podcast when you’re trying to pay attention to what his guests are saying. This guy is constantly saying “um-um-yeah-yeah-uh-huh-uh-huh”. Sometimes he literally talks over his guest and makes complete sentences so that I have a hard time hearing what either are saying.
He also outright interrupts his guests frequently and side-tracks the conversation with trivial tangents.
I want to say “You have brilliant guests saying really enlightening stuff... let them speak!”
I can’t believe that with around SIX producers on the show, not one of them have pointed out that this minor flaw is keeping this podcast from the professional caliber of NPR or Joe Rogan.
Please remember: podcasts are not just about content. Presentation can make all the difference.
3. Great Guests, Bad Host - Dr. Krauss is a brilliant physicist with a big public profile for both good and bad reasons. Because of his reputation as a scientist he has managed to get some very smart, fascinating, and famous guests to appear on this podcast. However, his skill as an interviewer is poor. He’s impatient, his mind wanders, and he talks over his guests and interrupts them with exclamations. If you’ve heard Alec Baldwin’s interview show on NPR called Here’s The Thing, you have heard a worse interviewer than Lawrence Krauss, so that’s something. But, end of the day, it’s frustrating and infuriating to listen to an interview show where the guest is consistently sabotaged by the host’s need to talk. Krauss should study the interview styles of Preet Bharara and Terry Gross for examples of how it’s meant to be done...not that he will. And I guess I won’t know if he does, because after listening to a couple of episodes, I have no intention of tuning in again.
4. Krauss was an ardent defender of Jeffrey Epstein; consider an alternative podcasts - I don't deny Krauss is a great scientist and communicator. However, prior to Epstein's death, Krauss is on the record ardently defending Epstein's actions. Add on to that, ample evidence of Krauss's sexual harrasment of women and I think that should be ample reason to consider an alternative podcasts. There are a never ending supply out there.
5. Great guests but... - It’s a great podcast with amazing guests and good topics, but the host takes over way too much! It feels like he has to constantly show he knows as much as his guests (regardless of the topic) and very often interrupts them. I do enjoy those moments where I can hear the guests express their thoughts though, and would give star to those. Hoping that Prof Lawrence learns some humbleness and stops telling us all the time he went to Harvard or Yale or that he’s the head of this or that faculty, and maybe puts himself in the role of a journalist and truly gives the stage to his wonderful guests! Ah, and one more thing: more prominent FEMALE guests would be nice too.
6. Allow the guest to speak - Please, less is more when interviewing. The host often talks over his guest and interjects needlessly. That, in combination with the constant unintelligible acknowledgement groans, make these almost unlistenable. I do think there is potential but again, less talking more listening.
7. Generally - Kraus has great guests and great subject matter. I’m very happy to be receiving this podcast, but...
there’s a strong tendency by Dr. Krauss to interrupt and take over the conversation from the guests. I’m hoping that Larry will learn to step back and let the speaker run. I know that he needs to steer the conversation in order to cover a lot of territory however he’s not doing that when he is taking over the subject.
8. Thank goodness for long form - Lawrence Krauss is a beautiful human. His contributions and way of explaining the “big” questions and concepts is what makes him such a special person. Recently misunderstood, he continues to pursue knowledge in an open and thoughtful way, in public long form discussion. Cheers Dr Krauss.
The acclaimed mathematician and author Steven Strogatz interviews some of the world's leading scientists about their lives and work.
Release date: 2022-03-17
1. For the love of math, this podcast is the best - I have really enjoyed all the episodes of this podcast. The joy it provides for a mathematician is beyond words that I can express. I tune it while I am running and at the end of it, I always learn something. My favorite episode was the one about anesthesia.
2. Scientist loves this show! - As a scientist sometimes it can be hard to listen to science podcasts or shows, they can often be simplified to meaninglessness or overinflated. Steve does a great job bringing the guest to explain on many levels their work and also their scientific passions. It’s motivating and fun and a great learning experience.
3. Host ruins the interviews - The guests are fascinating, the topics are fascinating but the host won’t shut up and let the guest finish a thought. His incessant “uh huh’s”, “hmmm’s”, “ahhh’s” and chuckling approvals are so annoying it is difficult to listen to. The guests seem to find it difficult too. What a shame. This guy needs to learn that the best interviewers are those that ask the question and get out of the way. Please, please, please talk less and listen more.
4. Amazing Podcast - Renowned Mathematician and Author Steven Strogatz has nearly perfected the art of open air discussion with The Joy of X, as he helps not only to enlighten fans about the intrigue and personalities of world class scientists, but also provides a personal viewpoint of the thrilling and mind boggling work they do. Alongside this is Strogatz’s own genius delivery weaved in to the elucidation of topics unbeknownst to average listeners, making the overall podcast a sheer delight to the mind of the academic. Absolutely phenomenal and frequently recommended.
5. Annoying host - Quite possibly the most annoying, constantly-interjecting host in all of podcast-dom. The guy doesn’t go seconds without interjecting something over his guest. Absolutely ruined the episode with the Nobel prize winning physicist on the strong nuclear force, a fascinating area but made unlistenable here.
6. Great Science Podcast - If you are a little bit interested in science, or if you have ever wondered what being a scientist is like, this podcast can pull back the curtain a bit. One of the things I really appreciate about the podcast is Steve's conversations with these scientists humanizes them and brings a new perspective to their work. It is great to hear about their successes but also that they work extremely hard and things don't necessarily come easy. This podcast illuminates the people behind the science very well and I highly recommend it.
7. Casual/Scientific/Complex/Conversational - Wonderful conversations - love the in depth conversations with all sorts of (mostly mathematics-related so far) scientists on their what and why and how it all connects. Please come back soon! (p.s. love the editing to include various explanations of higher level terms like “event horizon” or “lemma” etc - I’m a doctoral student in the life sciences & I have a very different vocabulary!)
8. Love it and Not Technical Enough - This podcast is great, I’m so excited for it. That’s why I’m writing this review, I want to encourage you to be even better, perhaps to beak some rules you’re being held to. I go to quanta because they can take technical topics and present them with the right context to be understandable, the right insights to be inspiring, and with enough of a technical framework that I learn something. This podcast is scared of getting technical at the risk of alienating listeners (?) Don’t be afraid to get your hands nerdy! That’s why we read, that will be why we listen
9. Not sure - But the explanations of basic physics by Steven breaks the flow of the conversation. If we didn't know what an "event horizon" was, we wouldn't be listening to this podcast. More in the moment presence, less post interview editing please. The era of assuming your audience knows nothing is over.
10. Insightful and fun - Sometimes those with advanced degrees have a difficult time explaining complex topics in simple and clarifying terms, but the joy of x allows listeners of any level to enjoy insightful and clear discussions of incredibly diverse and complicated topics between modern thinkers. A joy to listen to.
11. Fantastic podcast!!! - I am in love with the new podcast series, ‘the joy of X’. Steve Strogatz is an absolutely wonderful scientist and he is doing a fantastic job in hosting this science podcast. I particularly like the fact that he not only discusses the specific scientific aspects with the invited scientists but also equally stresses on the human aspects of how a scientist thinks and how she/he comes up with the specific questions and the meandering nature of science and the sheer joy of pursuing it! I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who loves science as well as anyone who would want to fall in love with science!!!
12. Really Terrific - Black Holes and Mapping - New knowledge for me in an understandable way, for sure. Perhaps even better is the pure joy Professor Natarajan conveys in her telling of quest and discovery - her relentless pursuit to solve problems, and how on some levels, she is still the little girl in India thinking about patterns in the sky.
13. The show I’ve been craving - This show is window into a fascinating world - our world! - through the life and career of a brilliant scientist. Host Steve Strogatz is warm and delightful and so curious! Hits the ball out of the park - it’s my new recommendation to everyone. It’s the show the world needs right now!
14. Enthusiasm for math and science meets your ears! - Not only is Steve Strogatz one of the most creative and insightful mathematicians of our time, he is incredibly adept at explaining a wide variety of concepts in mathematics to general audiences in fun, engaging ways. With this in mind, The Joy of x podcast is going to be a treat! Steve’s love for mathematics coupled with his curiosity and enthusiasm is inspirational and will surely make for some exciting episodes that will leave us all looking forward to the ones to follow! Cheers to Steve for hosting this new podcast, and I can’t wait to follow along on this journey!
15. Prof. Strogatz is one of a kind - I first learned about Professor Strogatz when he gave a guest lecture to my undergrad Real Analysis class in . I was amazed how he was able to explain complex ideas as if they were simple, digestible talking points. After reading ‘The Joy of x’ afterwards, it became clear that Professor Strogatz writes in the same way. It’s as if he’s having a conversation with you, and you’re just soaking up information simply by being present. I’m sure this podcast will be no different. I’m so excited to follow it!
16. Whoops. - Complete fail. Podcast hosted by really smart mathematicians who cannot relate to humans. Guys, if you cant explain the chain rule any better ( less obtuse) you should give up and just play your video games. It’s not that hard, (the chain rule) and way more interesting. Math is easy, you are not. Take it down notches. Relate. Relate. Relate. Math is beautiful not abstract so stop trying to prove how smart you are. One more hopefully helpful thing- instead of a dog and a leash, tell me how the chain rule can be used to predict success with the opposite sex. Not hard, guys. You just need to relate.

1. Love the topic, sad about some of the content - I love the stories you present, and the episode about life on Venus is one of my favorite episodes of any podcast. Unfortunately, after listening to the episode on self driving cars, I am thoroughly embarrassed for both you and your guests that you had on. If I had no knowledge on the subject I would take away from the episode that full autonomous cars are at least - years away. Tesla literally has a full self driving beta out right now that seems no more than a few years from perfection. This reminds me of the people who said flying vehicles were hundreds of years away, only a few days before the wright brothers flew for the first time. I wish you would offer a correction for the guests you had on that had no knowledge of their own industry.

1. Like fine wine this podcast gets better and better. - I wish this show came out twice a week! I love the banter and perspective that both hosts bring to the mic. Dave’s old school pragmatic approach is invaluable and Chris’ interviews and dives into firmware have been amazing. He is doing a great job of showcasing the cutting edge convergence of hi-tech circuitry and software in a way that makes it more approachable for people just diving into the subject.
2. Best overall poscast for EEs - I’ve listened to almost all of the other electronics related podcast but still consider this my favorite. Something about Chris and Dave’s on-air personalities as well as a large lineup of interesting guest interviews prevent me from getting bored with it. Keep it up Chris and Dave!
3. Great Engineering podcast - I really appreciate how much Chris and Dave give to the electronics community. I have benefited greatly on a couple of occasions when I avoided a gotcha because of something mentioned, even as an aside, on one of the shows. This is a super valuable podcast, I even like when Chris selves into non technical books because it clearly comes from the heart. Thank you and your guests!
4. My Favorite - The Amp Hour is my favorite podcast to listen to. I look forward to new episodes being released weekly for my morning drive. I enjoy listening to Chris and Dave chat. The interviews can be hit or miss, sometimes they are not that electronics related. Regardless, this is the best electronic podcast.
5. Things you didn’t know you didn’t know - The Amp Hour has a lot of interesting topics in electronics. It is an easy listen if you are into or getting into electronics. There are a lot of topics where I knew a few things but a good amount of the time I am learning about things that I didn’t know I didn’t know. The Amp Hour EEVBlog Contextual Electronics a great time.
6. A great resource - I am a relatively new engineer and listening to Dave and Chris continue to educate me in a wide range of topics. The interviews are especially informative since they have different points of view and specialities. And it's NOT BORING! Sorry to others, that I won't name, but they bored me to death.
7. The AMP Hour is a great listen - The AMP Hour is always informative and entertaining, often funny and enlightening. I rarely if ever build anything electronic and certainly don’t operate in electronics at the level these two aficionados speak to, but I very much enjoy their conversations through a wide range of electronics related themes.
8. Informative to the MAX - I’ve been an electrician for the past years, and made most of my money in controls for coal mines. I don’t know a whole lot about the smaller electronics side of things but have recently joined the ranks of the electrical designers of the world, and am using Autodesk applications, like Revit and Navisworks. Since joining the office staff I have noticed that my desire to learn more and more about EVERY aspect of electrical design and you guys are right on point with information and the struggles that I myself am facing dat in and day out. I love the show and I will be a listener from now on.
9. Excellent Podcast for Techies - Dave and Chris have a great chemistry and work well together. They continue to have some amazing guests every other week. One of my favorite parts is that they never rush their guests to keep them on a schedule. It's not just a lack of commercial breaks that makes it nice, but if they’re still deep in discussion, the “hour” show just keeps going. LOVE it!
10. Great fun around electronics! - Very entertaining, lots of electronics-related topics, fantastic and interesting guests. The host are great chaps couple, and they complement each other perfectly. The ideal audio show for electronic engineers, makers and hobbyists.
I never miss an episode. Thanks Chris and Dave! I love it!
11. Informative,hilarious and thoroughly enjoyable - I seriously look forward to Chris and Dave every week. The banter between them is hilarious and not without its 'uncomfortable silences' technically, it hits all the spots, hardware, electrical,electronic and sometimes software. Special guests are varied and sometimes irregular in appearance but always a great listen. Totally recommended. Well done guys.
12. The only podcast I listen to every week - Chris and Dave, along with the guests they bring, just have a very down-to-earth approach and they are very enjoyable to listen to. I've particularly enjoyed hearing the different industry experts, who range in industry and expertise from automotive electronics to home automation. Great show. Thank you guys!
13. Best hour of the week! - I absolutely love this podcast. Been listening since I found out about it on twitter around episode . I can never wait until next week's show! Topics range from "chip of the week" reviews to tributes and shout-outs to designers and products of relevant electronics kits, services, and vendors. Special guest appearances by big names in the EE twitterverse. Listen long enough and you might even hear Dave let someone else speak! No, actually he probably just lost his Internet connection.The best hour of the week! (FYI- website is easier to use than iTunes )

1. Hosts are way too ignorant - Honestly they just shouldn’t have a podcast with this title. They sound like first year undergrads trying to tackle big topics in math or physics that are outside their current level of understanding. Maybe get at least a masters degree first. Or maybe rebrand the podcast as beginners learning these things so the low level of knowledge is not so frustrating to listen to.
2. Awesome podcast - A lot of people complain about the topics not being straightly called out or explained one way, but honestly most these topics have an endless way of explaining them keep doing what you’re doing and keep being yourselves! Much love dudes ! (If you don’t understand something they say, research it, come back and try and put and together! Get an idea of the topic for yourself because everyone will have a different understanding or opinionated answer to these questions or topics)
Exciting new podcast series that focuses on the nature of reality, ancient history, lost civilizations, conspiracies, and the multiverse.
Release date: 2022-06-27
1. Love this stuff! - Matt is a very good speaker. He seams to be confident and he is good at getting his point to the listener. I love learning what he has to tell me. I suppose that’s a mark of a good teacher. I’ve always had a passing interest in history but Matt gets me excited about it! Thanks for all the hard work you put in to giving me info in a way that’s easy to understand.
2. Unlocking our ancient memories - Thank you Matt for asking these important questions about our ancient civilizations. We are going through a time of remembering and I believe the rediscovery and remembrance of these ancient technologies will help us in understanding how to use the elements and innate power of the Earth and cosmos to harness free energy, heal our bodies through frequency, and understand the fabric of this reality/matrix we live in.
3. greatest podcast to ever exist - matt blows my mind with every podcast i’ve listened to each one probably - times. to find out so much about our past makes me happy that one day this type of thinking will be taken seriously instead of the realm of conspiracy. KEEP IT UP MAN. MAKE MORE PODCAST!!! MAKE IT YOUR LIFE!! WE NEED PODCAST /!!! lol. thanks man
4. Mastermind - Love the show- really hope you continue and maybe you can connect the bizarre things of our world today- to include CERN and the Papacy’s interest in the large telescope they have and how it relates to ancient civilizations
But the Nephillim play a part with all the same architectural similarities but it certainly is relevant for today and how it relates to what it all means for us today- those people had a mission that has carried on through out time by a small remnant
5. First Time - I go back before book “The Celestine Prophecy”. Thank you for putting words to feelings I have had for many years. Seeking truth and understanding through books and Bible. I had put together the fallen Ángels mating with earthling women introducing the Giants and therefore the ruling bloodlines. At my age there aren’t a lot of people interested in those conversations. Also, absolutely aghast as the Taliban and ISIS destroyed the ancient monuments. Thank you for your program. Please don’t use this wonderful site to put down the US. This is not moving forward by constantly repeating negative events. Please know China, Iran, really hate this nation and the most free countries in EU are under the military protection of US. I hope this show is not the norm. Do I hate war, yes. Do I wish all nations loved the US, yes. Is that reality right now, no.
6. Episode - First review I have written and I mean I should of wrote a lot! James Corbett, no agenda, THC, crow, I am not trying to take away the glory. But MY MIND IS BLOWN. The gracefulness and conciseness of that message, the two speakers have a very deep seated and firm reality on what’s going on and the destruction of history is a better tool than follow the money....
7. Brilliant! - This is the most grounded and viable explanation I’ve heard about our existence and the current paradigm in which we find ourselves. This makes so much sense without being over the top conspiracy-driven and fear-mongering on the other side. I appreciate that you provide actions we can take individually to affect change. I am Leary of conspiracy theories that only provide circumstantial claims which create more fear with no solution offer. In my mind, that only perpetuates the fear that keeps us locked into the lower level vibration frequencies. I have always said out purpose here is to raise the vibration frequency on the planet. You guys validated that in this podcast. I am glad my girlfriend turned me on to you. Thanks for all you do! You are true blessings and wayshowers! Sending Love, Light, and High Vibes your way.
8. Great show with inspiring perspective - I love what you are doing and I think it’s awesome that you a bringing such Light into the the world. This show is both educational on alternative history as well as eye opening in the spiritual nature of existence. I think you should hook up with “The brothers of the Serpent” for a swapcast.
Also check out “Kosmographia” for the most in depth analysis on Atlantis. Drop the Richat structure nonsense in the bin.
9. Thank you! - I’ve been following Matthew’s work for the last year or so across various podcasts, and it has truly changed my life for the better. A lot of scattered dots across the page of existence have been connected for me, and I have a better understanding of myself and why I've had a lot of the innate thoughts and feelings over the years without knowing how or why I knew them. Things make a lot more sense to me now, and I’d like to thank you for sharing this information and starting this awakening in me that I’ve been waiting for the past few years. Please continue to share your Truth, it will change many more lives than it already has!
10. Decent - Yeah it was good. Recent tfh appearance led me here I was a fan of his previous visits (matt).... I very much enjoyed the discussion brought forth. Basically who are we and where did we come from. Although I don’t agree with some subjects brought up like nukes , Mars, and dinosaurs. I think there all false narratives to keep up constrained in this matrix like system. I would like to suggest get guests like Freeman fly, Jason lindgren from secrets of Saturn....etc .... very decent first episode . I subbed cause I like Matt and his brain ... other host is decent as well don’t know much about him but I’m happy to take this journey.
11. Perspective - Love the Pod!! I am a devout Christian who loves when perspective is brought to organized religion... Matthew does a great job of producing an open environment where parties won’t feel attacked and produces high level information with apologetic backing... the ancient world is awesome!!!

1. Bite Size Particle Physics - This is an excellent and easily digestible intro to particle physics and its interesting real world applications. It also gives me a break from the stress of the pandemic. I love that I can get further into the topics presented here with their free course on their website. / would recommend!
Jim Rantschler and Randy Morrison discuss physics from elementary particles to cosmological effects at the limits of our theoretical knowledge or have recently emerged.
Release date: 2022-12-18
1. Different people morn differently - I always sensed a closeness between Jim and Randy. When Randy passed Jim it seemed to me was too bereft to eulogize Randy. I don’t mean to put words in Jim’s mouth or pretend to know something I don’t, but the love between friends can be more profound than is comprehensible. I felt that depth in Jim’s closing remarks after their last show. I felt a profound sadness. I also felt he was angry that he left Jim so swiftly. Jim loved him that much.
2. RIP RANDY - I am shocked, saddened and in disbelief. We lost Randy. I always loved listening to these two friends, Jim and Randy go over papers on subjects way over my head. But the tone and vibe and information always left me feeling a little better if not learn something. My condolences to Jim. You lost a friend and partner. I post briefly read, with glazed over eyes, about the LHC at CERN spotting these all charm quarks. I would love to hear your take. (there’s a “beauty” quark?)
3. Condescending Chuckling, Condescending “I” - When picking apart a paper by a well known physicist, there is just too much chuckling like, “What a dumb statement. Bless their heart.” Actually card some of the paper “crap”. Again, this is a paper by a well respected scientist (I’m not listing the name as I have proper respect for people smarter than I). Irritating. And the ongoing “I have no problem with that” statements as if they are the final word. It would be much better if you say it in a more humble way. Just irritating. And the sound quality is AWFUL considering Best Buy has all you need to make a quality recording.
4. Tough listen - I’ve read all of Brian Greene’s books and dozens of articles on particle, theoretical, and astrophysics, so I know enough to keep up with most concepts, but in listening to the first min of the multiversality episode, I was having a really hard time. I was able to get the gist of it but these guys are talking in a shorthand where they clearly understand each other but not simplified enough to appeal to someone without a lot more of an understanding than what I currently grasp. The hunt for a good physics podcast continues.
5. A great introduction to physics - Jim and Randy have quite a catalog of episodes on various subjects that give a lay person as myself a glimpse into this fascinating field. Somehow they make their discussions accessible to the general public and I have listened to many episodes multiple times. A favorite podcast.
6. Better audio please - I like these guys. I love the topics. There are many people like me who need these guys to explain complex topics in physics that we don’t have the education to access otherwise.
I have updated my review to acknowledge the improvement in the audio. Keep it up guys, and if you find a way to remaster the early episodes to improve the audio, I’d love to chip in to raise the funds. In the early episodes, when I set the audio in my car so that it’s not too loud, half the conversation is too quiet to hear. The dynamic range is too wide!!! Usually, Randy’s voice goes from normal volume to SUPER LOUD, especially when he just begins to talk after Jim; it’s not just me. If you pay attention, you’ll even here the audio distortion. Jim’s voice starts out at a normal volume and then trails off so that the last sentence is very quiet. This effect is worse in my car. If I turn it up to hear the quiet passages, Randy’s voice is deafeningly loud when he comes in. I urge these guys to test run their podcast in their cars. I think computer desktops have a built in dynamic range compression so the volume is even throughout. I think part of the issue is their microphone settings or distance of their faces from the mics. Partly it may be their natural intonation. In a few episodes, they switch so that Jim is the loud one and Randy sounds like he’s across the room.
7. Right to good conversation - These guys jump right into the subject matter of the podcast. The conversations aren’t dumbed down. I think you need a bit of a working knowledge to fully enjoy or you will develop a bit of one just by listening. I myself only follow physics as a hobby and while some of this is over my head it’s still interesting and educational.
8. In-depth discussions, fascinating stuff - As a layman, I can't claim to understand everything they talk about, but I find most pop-sci physics content to be too shallow, rehashing the same tired analogies over and over. This podcast, in contrast, challenges the mind and delves deeper. I wish there was more content like this.
PS Audio's Senior Analog Design Engineer Darren Myers and The Music Room Testing Technician Duncan Taylor discuss all things hifi audio, covering such audiophile topics as speakers, amplifiers, DACs, preamplifiers, vinyl, cables, music, stereo soundstages, tweaks, adjustments and much more.

1. Love it! - My favorite podcast. Look forward to listening every week! In addition to the knowledge Darren and Duncan bring to every episode, what I find most engaging is the passion and genuine enthusiasm they bring. And I love how willing they are to interact with their audience. And of course I love the album recommendations! Keep it up!
2. Op-Amp rolling - Best audio podcast I've heard. These guys are super knowledgable and are a vpleasant listen. They cover all the levels of home audio. No snake oil subject is off limits lol. Where else can you ask a question to one of the lead audio designers in the industry and a guy who has probably handled, tested and listened to more different brands and types of gear than anybody. It's also nice to be able to listen to a podcast without worrying about skipping ahead or stopping the podcast due to the language my children are hearing. star all the way
3. Best Source for Audiophile Commentary - I look forward to listening to the new podcast every week. Darren and Duncan know their stuff, and the conversational aspect of the podcast is great. The listener questions are awesome, as are a lot of the album recommendations. Some will not like it, as it is unedited and usually spans hours or more. I’ve shared the podcast with a few friends, almost all of who gave up after one episode. Also, a lot of the physics and electrical engineering goes way over my head, as I suspect it does for most listeners, but it’s cool be aware of how deep the hobby goes. I consider myself somewhere between a beginner and intermediate audiophile. This podcast is probably not for the beginner audiophile. It’s for the real nerds only. Despite these two guys being very knowledgeable and having a ton of experience, it’s still just two guys sharing their opinions about a field / hobby that is a highly subjective in nature. If you are into Dunlavy speakers, fancy power cables, cable lifting, endless tweaks, DIY, REL subs, and expensive new gear, you will love this podcast. It’s also just a great way to begin to unpack the infinitely complex world that is audio. It’s kind of hilarious how much they dislike horn loudspeakers. More detailed show notes would be awesome, because the episodes are very long and a lot of them touch on the same topics, so it’s near impossible to go back to find a specific brand/model/tip without spending hours re-listening. Or just notes added to the website. So far the only guest has been Chris Brunhaver at PS Audio. More guests would be cool too. My favorite episodes are just Darren and Duncan though. Overall this podcast is a / for me. No amount of cruising forums or YouTube videos can beat this wealth of knowledge.
4. HiFi Tweakers - These guys are great. Highly passionate and knowledgeable about gear and music. They go down the rabbit hole of audiophilia to degrees I haven’t heard before. Sometimes the engineering talk goes over my head, but I’ve enjoyed the insight into different speaker and amplifier topologies, tubes, cabling etc from experts that are living this stuff.
5. Show Fluidity - I really like what you guys talk about but it’s hard to really listen for very long because you’re not the best speakers. It is not smooth and it seems like the show could be half as long if you could just spit it out instead of every sentence being full of
"umm”, “uhh”, “ahm”. Sorry Darren but you are the worst, you just sound uncomfortable. Hopefully it’ll get better with time.
6. Great podcast! Keep it up. - I've developed an interest in hifi and am happy I found this podcast via their Instagram account today. I've already blown through half the podasts and look forward to more. The hosts present the information in a down to earth manner. They offer their opinions without being opinionated. There are plenty of audiophile podcasts out there that have promising starts, but eventually lose momentum with infrequent posts. I hope the hosts keep this up because there are a lot of topics out there.
This is an introduction to Einstein’s space-bending, time-stretching theory of Relativity, written by the master himself. Special and General relativity explain the structure of space time and provide a theory of gravitation, respectively. Einstein’s theories shocked the world with their counterintuitive results, including the dissolution of absolute time. In this book he brings a simplified form of his profound understanding of the subject to the layperson. In the words of Einstein: “The ...

1. unnecessarily overly speculative - While the facts and circumstances surrounding Eunice Foote’s work are quite intriguing and the presentation of them is a positive step toward the long overdue exposition of known past scientific work by women; I found the presentation too speculative along the current ideologically driven agenda concerning equity in science. Actual documents such as letters or other supporting records are apparently non existent so it is inappropriate to stretch the known facts to fit such current memes. Such seeming misinformation is perhaps even a dis-service to her actual work if it compromises the size of the audience. An example of this concern is the question (which for some reason was left unanswered) and which might have bearing in regards to her overall attitude toward a career in science:
“what was her second and final publication with AAAS about?” An interesting enough start for “Initial Conditions” however, that I will sample a few more.

1. Thank you - Hello! I figured I would share that the episode with Grant Salton was the first podcast I’ve ever listened to and it was fantastic. I love prodding the fringe of what we know (and philosophically that which we think we know) on both quantum and universal levels as a balanced whole. I will definitely work my way through the preceding podcasts! Thank you for the available content. - Eric

1. Great podcast - I am a firefighter in the Unites States and I have a passion for fire behavior and fire dynamics. This is an outstanding podcast! I enjoy listening to you and your guests. I have learned a lot about fire and and how engineers are working to make buildings safer. We need more collaboration between fire engineers and fire fighters, and you are helping to do that through your show. Keep up the great work! Chad Moe

1. Found: physics inspiration - As an engineer building space junk, this podcast alleviates my spirits during the daily commute. It instills a proper sense of wonder around topics that are easy to overcomplicate. EDIT: I miss your wonderful podcasts. However your recent-ish politically laden preamble was a big turn off. Please keep politics out of the wonderful science of the universe. There’s a million political podcasts, but only one TitaniumPhysicist!
2. GREAT physics podcast!!!! - I am an orthopaedic surgeon, and somewhere along the line I realized how ignorant I was about quantum mechanics and astrophysics, despite a very extensive science background. I ran across this podcast after going through the entire back catalogs of Sean Carol’s Mindscape podcast and Lex Fridman‘s Artificial Intelligence podcast. I was looking for a podcast heavy in the topics of astrophysics and quantum mechanics. This podcast did not disappoint!
Each episode is a very manageable minutes or so, and what makes it so unique is that in addition to having two guest physicists, Dr. Ben also invites a guest with very little knowledge about physics. With that format, the listener is experiencing the podcast similar to how the guest is, in that some very difficult concepts are being explained so that even a lay person can understand them. What’s more, Dr. Ben instills a lot of his quirky humor into each episode. Do yourself a favor and subscribe to this podcast!
3. Slid from an interesting program to a political platform - Six months off must have left you on bad shape. Stopped producing the program to leave the listeners to fend for themselves. Brian Greene started a daily Einstein equation podcast, delving into the logic behind Einstein’s brilliance, and the reality of the universe. Sean Carroll increased the episode of his varied topics during the shelter in place. Everyone needed help through these tough and unsure times, instead we got the cold shoulder on Titanium Physicists. We didn’t need to be told what to think, of who to vote for, or frankly your opinions on politics. This was supposed to be a science podcast. Plenty of Poitiers for personal rants. Later.
Unsubscribing from this, same as others that you deleted from Facebook, and Twitter.
4. Great scientific explanations - This gives intelligent though somewhat simple explanations of lots of physics. The science is good but the few minutes of idiotic personnel introduction and discussion at the beginning and ending is very annoying, and should be skipped. The guest science experts are really good!! But the humor often crosses the boundary beyond nerd into the stupid zone.
5. The epitome of an epic podcast - This podcast expertly explores difficult physics concepts made fascinating and easy-to-understand solely due to the extraordinary people who are a part of this show. I cannot emphasize enough what a great resource this is for learning physics. Seriously love you guys!
6. complex topics, easy to understand - really fun show! I thought that I was no means qualified to listen to this podcast bc my knowledge in science and physics is pretty limited, HOWEVER the host and guests on the show make completely complex topics so easy to understand. I’ve only listened to episodes and I learned about gravitational waves, black holes, and neutrinos! Can’t wait to listen to more
7. Thanks Ben, et al. - The depth, the humor, and the ability to clearly and accurately communicate such weighty topics makes this podcast my favorite educational podcasts. I’m a health and fitness professional that unfortunately never had the opportunity to explore the realm of physics outside of that which relates to the body. Because of this educational vacancy in concert with my desire to learn, I require academic resources such as Ben’s Titanium Physicist podcast. THANK YOU ALLAY PHYSIQUE!
8. I love this podcast - Ben is very informational and witty, I love his physicists they all have great analogies that help so much and they have fun while doing it and it’s easy to tell and gets me into it, I’m new to physics and my live for space and the cosmos but I appreciate this podcast for answering a bunch of questions and all the content. Highly recommend this podcast if you’re a fanatic of the cosmos
9. Random music really has to go - The whole intro of this podcast is so ridiculous that it reminds of circus shows from my childhood and is totally unfitting to the topic of the podcast. Also I, as I am sure many others, listen to the podcasts before going to sleep and the music and creepy voice... stop it please, just stop!
10. My absolute favorite podcast EVER!! - I love this podcast.. it is hands down the best educational podcast ever.. Ben is a GREAT hostand is well educated in the laws and theories of physics that govern this universe and his Typhyters are geniuses that are able to explain it simply for everyone to understand (and we all know Einstein said if you can’t explain something simply, you don’t understand it well enough ) and my goal is to understand the laws that govern our universe and be able to simply explain them to others that want to learn about physics and astronomy.. with Ben and company’s help I will be able to do just that.. I just wish the shows came out more frequently...but I know Physicist can be busy so I cut them some slack.
11. Easily one of the best podcasts for serious, relaxed learning. - Important caveat: skip min into the podcast. The preamble and the intro are both slow and can easily dissuade you from investing your time. DONT be dissuaded. The podcast is great and gets into interesting meat right away. It's a podcast that you don't have to play on double time -- as there are enough interesting and worthwhile ideas thrown at you in almost every episode that you can spend your extra cycles actually dealing with them. TLDR: great science podcast with some heft, but still low key (i.e. you can listen while workign out, walking, doing an easy surgery/techwork, whatever). But do skip the preamble and get to the actual podcast to judge. The typical preamble pacing and quality is not indicative.
12. Never thought I was interested in physics until now - Ben Tippett, thank you for an interesting, dynamic, goofy show. I'm learning so many concepts and it's changing my perspective on our place in the universe... the concept of time...gravity...everything. Also LOVE that there are so many female physicists out there/ on your show you guys are incredible. Everyone should listen to this.
13. Simply brilliant and entertaining - An amazing series that very effectively guides you through some of the most hard to grasp concepts in modern physics. Since I discovered this podcast, I have given up on morning radio on my way to work and will never look back. I have a degree in Applied Physics but still take so much away from every episode. Keep up the fantastic job job Ben.
14. Outstanding Podcast and Great Science - If you have a deep curiosity about the universe, then this podcast is for you. It dives deeply into esoteric, but incredibly interesting, subject matter but the host really guides the discussion to make the subject matter approachable and understandable for non-scientists. You don't get rich making podcasts on physics, so I appreciate the time and energy these folks put into serving others with their teaching and technical skills.
15. Wonderfully educational and entertaining! - I love the in-depth discussions of all things physics and I really enjoy the balance of technical explanations and layman metaphors the group of titanium physicists offer. I learn something with every episode and genuinely get excited when I see a new episode downloading!
16. An excellent blend of education and entertainment - I discovered this podcast a year ago and have now worked my way through the entire catalog. Fantastic. The format is consistent and the production quality is very high and getting better all of the time. Ben has really created something special in that he has achieved a seemingly perfect balance of education and entertainment. I'm not a physicist but I do love deepening my knowledge of science, particularly physics and astronomy. Ben and his physicists are always so engaging as they artfully respond to the questions of the guest of each show. What emerges is an exploration that I can relate to. These are conversations that are not too easy but not too difficult. I end up laughing even as I push myself to understand the nuances of the knowledge that is being shared. Most episodes are an hour long which is just about perfect. A podcast with this kind of high level content needs to be long enough that the concepts are given proper attention but not so long that the listener feels overwhelmed by the end of it. Well done Ben and crew. I'm looking forward to many more episodes and thank you so much for the work you've put into this. I more fully appreciate the beauty of our Universe because of what you're doing here.
17. Outstanding! - Highly recommended. I mean the metaphors are dumbed down to the level of bears chasing Danny DeVito into black holes or something, but then they start dissecting baryon number conservation and by the time they're done you feel smarter and entertained. That's not easy to do. I fall asleep to these more often than I'd like to admit. Keep it up!
18. Physics for the rest of us. - I’m nearly years old. I’ve been a professional artist for over years. I’ve long had an interest in science—especially physics—but not the math sufficient to develop a deep understanding. And I find most popularizations to be mostly annoyingly unsatisfying (and often misleading) hyperbole. I was delighted, then, to find The Titanium Physicists Podcast. The subjects are always intriguing and Ben Tippett, the creator and host, has an unquenchably infectious enthusiasm about physics that keeps me coming back for more. In fact, it has become such a welcome part of my science diet that I am now a Patreon supporter, believing that those things which give me both knowledge and pleasure deserve my support. Mr. Tippett does a great job of choosing his Titanium Physicist guests; most are very good at explaining difficult concepts to laymen like me, and it is a pleasure to hear the genuine excitement in their voices as they describe their own particular areas of work. I am continually impressed by this podcast and look forward to each new episode.
19. Why did I not pay attention in class? - I never write reviews, however, thanks to Ben Tippett and his fantastic Titanium Physicists for sharing their sense of wonder and fascination with cosmology, astronomy and general physics. I drive two hours a day and they go by in a flash, awesome ability to explain bizarre phenomon. Please keep it up for years!! Never stop!!
20. AWESOME! - A friend introduced me to this show several months ago... and I'm totally hooked. I'm working my way through and just finished Episode ... Each episode is great, interesting, thought provoking and fun. But I'd say that probably a quarter of the episodes totally blow me away! I have an engineering background, but my kids can understand a lot of what Ben and his physicists talk about. THis is my favorite podcast!!! Keep up the great work!!
21. Excellent physics podcast for non-scientists - If you are obsessively curious about the origins of the universe, and you know just enough science to know when you're being talked down to, this is what you want to be listening to. Great topics, great host, unfiltered science by scientists and those who crave knowledge. Ben Tippett, great job. Keep up the wonderful work.
22. Well targeted & presented - Seems aimed to inform & interest people with interest in science up to actual scientists. Concepts well presented in seminar or small class form with one person leading the discussion, spontaneous questions answered, summaries of major concepts & some horsing around. Lots of fun.

1. A standout, wide-ranging science podcast - This has quickly become my favorite podcast. The host’s expertise is physics, including the physics of climate change, and the podcasts on those topic are interesting and revelatory to a lay person. But equally illuminating are episodes on other topics, including finance, economics and sociology. The host brings the same incisive analysis, preparedness and joy of discovery to all these subjects.
2. Thoughtful! - Physical Attraction is a truly thoughtul and thought provoking show. The ideas discussed here aren't what you normally get on the internet, or sadly in the news. Clearly these ideas have been ruminated on for a while before being brought forth. Truly interesting topics from alien life to UBI. Highly recommended.
3. Meson Master - Many science podcasts are seriously overproduced. They have multiple hosts and feel the need to jazz things up as if they are afraid they're about to lose all their listeners any second if they concentrate on the science. The result is too many jokes, sound effects and banter. Physical Attraction has only Thomas Hornigold and his guests and Hornigold appears very confident that his listeners are tuning in because, well, they dig science and like to learn cool stuff. It's a refreshing change and much appreciated. Listen to this podcast, pay attention and you'll learn things. What a concept.
4. Creative, and fun, way to present physics - This is a fun show that is also educational, or is it the other way around? In any case, the host is very engaging, with plenty of self-depracating humor that makes for a charming way to present physics. If you are looking for deepening your understanding of physics, this is your show!
