Its really a pleasure for brain and soul to listen to this podcast. Strictly recommended!

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.

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.

Too bad this has happened. Was enjoying till then. Subtle references like the mention of the description of “wore a red baseball cap”.

Paul Sutter is a delight to listen to and the topics are fascinating. I listen to each new episode the day it comes out.

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

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.

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!

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 »

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.

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 »

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 »

I appreciate that you get straight to the information and present it in a humble yet distinct way. Great work. Want more often!
csfalk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/11/22
I’ve learned a lot from this podcast. Very informative.
sllinnks via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/22
Really excellent explanations, I love it and am working through the back log every day. I did a PhD in Physics years ago and am now in business, it’s nice to go back and listen to such clear explanations. Interesting no dark matter evidence in globular clusters vs galaxies….
jreiqojvwieovjw via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/27/22
Excellent podcast for any space geek out there and the host is brilliant.
mw613 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/18/22
Just started this podcast and i love it. Not too complex for people who do not have a physics degree but also not to easy to lose interest. I can listen to this for days and always listen to it before sleep. Writing the review because I like the show and you asked ;) The outro could be a bit...Read full review »

Only a few podcast bring real science. This one from Dr. Paul Sutter is one of the best. Thanks Dr. Sutter for everything i learned from you.

P. M. Sutter is THE BOSS. If you ever visit Spain, let me know.
bufalo64 via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 12/03/21
One of the most accessible and interesting space podcasts out there. Incredibly engaging and interesting while not being too wonky. Highly recommended!
ryan_e09 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/21
Wow! Mr. Sutter does an amazing job with this podcast! Ive always been fascinated with astrophysics and all things involving planets, stars, orbits, etc, and Mr. Sutter explains them in a clear and concise way most people can understand. This is one of my favorite podcasts now. Thank you for...Read full review »

Great podcast! Great host!

I have recently come across this podcast series & I’m loving it. I am geeking out to these podcasts at least 2/3 times a day, which sounds weird, but isn’t as Paul Sutter draws you in, for a wonderful fireside chat. Extraordinary enthusiasm & deep knowledge, imparted in a way that makes...Read full review »

Enjoying this gem of a series. Spaceman is at the top of his game!
[email protected] via Apple Podcasts · United Arab Emirates · 06/01/21
Well explained physics of complex matters by Paul in a witty manner. Every episode is worth listening. Quantum computer 101 very well explained worth listening to any non-technical person to get started. Eagerly waiting for quantum mechanics series. Thanks Dr. Paul Vivek
Vivekdownunder via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/07/21
Within the first 2 minutes of the first podcast I listened to, he refers to someone asking a question as “knucklehead,” thereby affirming the old adage “there are no stupid questions, only rude people.”
Kw 0816 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/17/21
Fantastic shows that illustrate that astronomy is more bizarre than anything you can imagine.
P S via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/12/21
I stumbled across this podcast and am so glad to have been lucky enough to listen to Paul M Sutter’s fabulous presentations. He has explained incredibly difficult concepts and opened my perspective on modern accounts of our physical reality. Not only that, but he is funny and truly engaging,...Read full review »

Paul is funny, nerdy, cool, brilliant, and captivating all at the same time. His enthusiasm is contagious. And it’s amazing how he can make really, really difficult topics accessible to everyone. The universe isn’t just for aliens and astrophysicists. It’s for all of us. And I’m super grateful to...Read full review »

I’m curious about physics, but I only have 9th grade knowledge. Paul can Male me understand advanced concepts in an easy way. This show is AMAZING.
bjornedyr via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 12/20/20
Dr. Sutter’s awful analogies, wretched puns, unhealthy fixation on magnetic fields, and staggering grasp of physics all come together for a mind-blowing podcast experience that is at once accessible for the non-scientist and mentally stretching for the amateur fan of all things space. I deeply...Read full review »

Loved the education. You caved in and jumped on politics. Sad to see you go but will no longer listen or support.
18Steve11 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/20
I like the way you speak, spaceman. The content is fascinating and entertaining, I can’t get enough! I’m love the audiobook: ‘How to Die in Space!’ I’d love an audio version of your first book!!
Mikey hardcore via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/01/20
Paul you had me with your podcast and How the Universe Works. Now you put your politics in your show I’m out. Good luck to you.
jon snow is my real name via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/20
I love this show and listen to it everyday I can, Paul does an amazing job at making these complex topics easy to understand!!
Peyton18! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/20/20
Great program with very entertaining and clear explanations of what can otherwise be complex topics. It’s amazing the momentum is still just as strong after almost 100 episodes (mind you, ‘complete knowledge of time and space’ probably needs just a few episodes to cover!) My only suggestion is...Read full review »

Jack Black levels of excitement, combined with taking time to unpack concepts, honest about what we know and about what we don’t, goes into the roots of ideas. Really great.
