This is my first ever podcast that I listened to so P. Sotter opened doors to two amazing worlds of Astronomy and podcasting for me at the same time - forever grateful for hours of fun and educational content that he has put out to the world. Stay awesome Paul!

When did I start to like and even remotely understand Science and Astrophysics?! What happened?!! Oh ya, Paul happened! lol! It doesn’t matter how much you know if you cannot explain it to people in a way they can understand. Paul does an incredible job of explaining Astrophysics, whether your a...Read full review »

I love the light hearted narration and deep exploration on fascinating topics. Paul’s unpretentious approach, mature it the episodes a joy to listen to

I love this podcast it’s the best one I’ve ever heard to be honest I’m so into space exploration instant five stars
Harrison-carian via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/27/24
Paul’s ability to communicate the essence of whatever he chooses to discuss is unparalleled. His love and understanding for his subject matter is irresistible. One of the very few podcasts where I listen to recent and really old episodes regularly and repeatedly. Thank you very much, Paul!!
ExposureWorks via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/22/24
I really love the show, the energy, the voice and the topics. Paul does such a great job making complicated topics understandable for lay-people. I’ve been having a blast the last weeks going through the back-catalogue and just listening. If you are the least bit curious about all things...Read full review »

Paul M. Sutter has an amazing way of explaining difficult topics through analogies and thought experiments that most science communicators cant match. He goes through each possibility and plays with the idea of how and why certain theories or ideas can or can’t exist and then plays it the other...Read full review »
Jackman92 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/24
Interesting and well explained, but unfortunately Mr. Sutter’s communication style is to repeat himself and repeat himself and repeat himself and repeat himself interminably throughout the podcast. Is he paid by the word, or is he of the opinion that why should he limit himself to ten words when...Read full review »
Lakavos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/24
I listen to a lot of different science channels/podcasts/etc and have loved Paul for YEARS. What I especially appreciate is his ability to use effective, comprehensible metaphor to explain the otherwise impossible. (See the episode on particles as ice cream) I can’t overstate how excellent he is...Read full review »

I’m currently working my way through all of the episodes on my drive to work and back. I really love the dive into detail and the sheer enthusiasm that Paul brings, and the way he gets across sometimes complex ideas is exceptional. This is the Rolls Royce of science pod casts.
Johnson1968 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/31/23
Just heard the episode on how space affects climate on earth and I was compelled to write a review. The depth of analysis, style of explaining and the level of interest it generates is next level. Very impressed and happy that we have such dedicated podcasts for topics like these. Keep up the...Read full review »

This podcast has been my favourite podcast for a long time now. Paul is incredibly engaging and is able to delve deeply into complex topics in terms that almost anyone can understand, while at the same time respecting the intelligence of his listeners. The topics are always interesting and...Read full review »

I’ve been listening for years and this show keeps getting better. Paul’s analogies help me grasp the concepts, he tells great stories, and I love that listeners can request topics. Highly recommend for all ages.
Eva Jannotta via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/14/23
Every time I listen to an episode I discover something astonishing and awe-inspiring. I look forward to each new episode. Excellent. Truly excellent.
DPJL3000 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/02/23
This is the show to listen for everything about space! If what you want is out of this world but scientifically based this is your show. Also Dr Paul Shutter’s knowledge, communication skills, voice and style of presentation are impeccable.
Kalidonas via Apple Podcasts · Greece · 10/07/23
Every episode is a calm journey learning about very complicated matters in a charming and straight forward way.
The real Richie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/20/23
Very good down to earth presentation of complex ideas.
Reasonedone via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/05/23
Paul’s enthusiasm is wonderful, but even more important is his ability to make complex facts and ideas from astrophysics (seem) clear and simple. One of my most favorite podcasts. I listen to every single one (and I am especially choosey, having my own podcast). I greatly recommend this podcast....Read full review »

Lively source of data (pun intended). Two more Spacemen and he could start a band. ;D
conaninspace via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/18/23
The actual content of the show is very good and informative. I particularly enjoyed the lengthy series on quantum mechanics. However, I have to take some points off because while the host claims to be very supportive of and invested in empirical science, every episode, he talks about the benefits...Read full review »

A gem of an episode.
RezaZ2 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/06/23
One of the best podcasts on the internet. Learn while being entertained. Dr. Sutter does it like no one else. If you like space, you will like Paul M. Sutter. He is out of this world.

I suppose you might say that I’ve become … entangled ….
Mvn-express via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/23
P.M. Sutter’s approach to space science and physics is invariably illuminating. In his sardonic tone he elucidates a wide range of heady topics.
Tphr1973 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/23
Could have been more concise. eg. The first 15 minutes of the episode "What are the alternatives to dark matter" is about the owner's sentiments (it's not even his views and an analysis of such view - it's a repeated expression of his sentiments towards the controversy of dark...Read full review »

Seriously The best podcast with all my desired content and also satisfying(Most of the times)
Qüàñtå via Apple Podcasts · India · 01/05/23
Escape the day to day stresses of life with the pursuit of complete knowledge of space and time! Learn about big ideas and even the Patreon jokes are kind of funny too. I love this podcast and there’s so many episodes to get through. Most recently the series on quantum mechanics is fascinating...Read full review »

Its really a pleasure for brain and soul to listen to this podcast. Strictly recommended!
Janoshik via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 11/25/22
I appreciated that the author knows his stuff very well and it’s all well researched but I found these podcasts very slow going, and very often a small point is repeated and laboured over and over to the point of coming across as patronising and dumbed down. Clearly I’m a minority though.
Civfan13579 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/09/22
But my first listen was a fifteen minute introduction to a show that only last twenty-five more minutes, and the entire introduction sounded I was about to sold a religion. In the end… great content. Presentation… not so much.
BongWolf via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/26/22
Too bad this has happened. Was enjoying till then. Subtle references like the mention of the description of “wore a red baseball cap”.
Aggie Hiker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/17/22
Paul Sutter is a delight to listen to and the topics are fascinating. I listen to each new episode the day it comes out.
Rapshort via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/30/22
I’ve been hooked since I started listening to this a few weeks ago. This has been a life saver as I have been undergoing a medical procedure that has given me many sleepless nights. Although I’ve always found astrophysics fascinating, the way Paul tackles each question has helped me understand...Read full review »

Well put together podcast
MSUcatz1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/22
This is a great podcast that touches on several elements of astronomy and physics. The delivery is entertaining and often humorous, but always very informative.
GibsonLuv via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/22
The best physics podcast and the best podcast ever! The host is able to explain even the most difficult physics topic with simple words and awesome metaphors from everyday life. Nothing better to listen everyday and everywhere!
Johnnymolly via Apple Podcasts · Italy · 06/17/22
He goes into the topics in depth and doesn’t leave you feeling like he glossed over it because he didn’t want to scare you. He hits you with the real thing and it’s addictive. Going through the back catalog now and loving every minute. Thank you!
Myan Bryan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/07/22
Paul is without a doubt one of the best science communicators around. He has the ability to share complex subjects in a way that even a slow person like myself can absorb... But then again sometimes I have to play it twice or even thrice.
Zantsak via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 05/24/22
Awesome how Dr. Sutter is able to explain some of the most difficult concepts in an amazingly simple way. Just listening to just a few episodes won’t do justice. Listening to as many as I can has made a huge difference in expanding my breadth of astronomy knowledge. Thank you and please keep...Read full review »
Fedrog via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/20/22
Ask a Spaceman provides a fascinating dive into an interesting aspect of physics in each episode while giving you the historical perspective of how our knowledge evolved.
morriswj via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/01/22
This podcast will not disappoint. You will really be happy you picked this one. Paul’s thoughtful approach to simplifying the complexities the universe has offer is only exceeded by his sense of humor. His earnest delivery style and topic selections make these episodes ones I look forward to and...Read full review »
Skeetinator via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/27/22
A lot of astronomy podcasts are kind of news-driven, going over the latest discoveries & major sky events, or listener questions driven. This one does some of that, but mainly it gives the background science and explains in detail important foundational concepts, allowing you to make sense of...Read full review »
Delysid via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/17/22
This is always one of my favorite podcasts. The subject matter is complicated ideas of how our universe around us works. Paul loves answering listener questions in a way which makes it easy to follow. I like that it’s just not the concept, but the origins and history of the concept. Paul’s voice...Read full review »
the n1ghthawk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/22
This podcast is a good alternative to Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s podcast. There’s no ego maniac constantly cutting off his guests, and making lame jokes. This podcast isn’t afraid to be a science podcast, and isn’t artificially injected with “humor” and doesn’t try to be political with a “comedian”...Read full review »
Crazysabbath via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/22
I love this show not only bc of how much fun it is to wade about in theoretical waters of physics but bc Paul (which is my name as well) is so down to earth and funny. Uses current/colloquial language whenever possible to portray super complex ideas. I really do find his take on physics...Read full review »
