I first found Nick on YouTube and really enjoyed his videos and watched them more than once. Love the storytelling style of teaching, and easy to follow explanations. Thanks for not having ads!

These Nick Zentner Geology podcasts are AWESOME!! Very informative and insightful. Nick makes you think he is talking directly to you! Highly recommended!! Infinitely better than the other geology podcasts out there.

Sharing a review from Issaquah, WA: I discovered Professor Zentner by chance while I was home recovering from surgery earlier this year. I have learned so much from him about my adopted home. Each trip through eastern Washington and across the Columbia River has new meaning for me. Now I’m a...Read full review »

Having retired from IT at a community college in Tucson, it wasn’t unusual for this life long learner to look toward geology as an avocation. Finding Nick Zentner’s podcasts just made it more interesting and entertaining. The body of Nick’s online work presents Washington State in a way unlike...Read full review »

Gets straight into the podcast. Serious but still entertaining enough. I enjoy having it as a podcast instead of video.

Nick’s experiment into the podcast world is fascinating. My general interest in Geology over many years has been vastly deepened in the past few years. These episodes themselves make traveling on the freeway a real pleasure.

Daphne AL (eastern shore of the Mobile bay) you’ve helped me see my passion Thank you so much for doing all you do. I listen to these as a backup to your YouTube 101. I am learning so much from you

Shouts to Ned Zinger, Shouts to Liz & Bijou, Shouts to Tom Foster (LEGEND), Shouts to Patrick, Shouts to Eric Foss and let’s not forget Shouts to Muffler Boy!! Thanks for making my future road trips so much fun. Can’t wait to go find columnar at Latourell Falls.

I’m a practicing geo in BC and this is just fantastic. Nick is really able to describe processes and fundamentals of geology in such a great way. I’m so glad I’ve found this! Can’t wait to hear more. :)

Nick Zenter brings all his loves to these podcasts. His love of geology, his love of sharing that love, his love of learning new things, and as well he brings his humility and humor. The Ethics of the Fathers, Pirkei Avot, teaches one who is easily embarrassed will not learn Torah, but that...Read full review »

I’m giving 4 stars because this professor is doing something important for the uneducated public. In that regard, I forgive the delivery, which sounds unscripted and awkward at times (reminds me of high school). Overall, this show is best for religious people with extremely rudimentary science...Read full review »

Nick is always a pleasure to listen to. I moved to the NW about 2 years ago and I am so thrilled I found him on YouTube. I am also delighted to have him on this podcast. It has been new to me to envision his visuals since this is audio only but it works as geology “ is about the story”. So many...Read full review »

Hey Nick, thanks for the podcast and the youtube videos - I'm learning so much about geology! My Dad and I in Northern California have been watching reruns of your livestreams since we are spending more time together during the pandemic.

I am a Mining Engineering B.S. student with 1 semester remaining at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, and this podcast has expanded my view of the geology of the near-Rockies significantly over the past couple of months. Excellent professor.
Will15Carroll via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/21
Great podcast to fall asleep too after a busy day. I do go back and listen though. Shame geologists don’t have a louder voice in this current day and age. Seems like people would rather listen to uneducated celebrities and activists rather than the experts. Keep up the great work.

Just drove 7 hours from Bryce Canyon to Twin Falls and I binged 9 episodes. It was all what I learned so far in his Geology 101 series on YouTube but I have fallen behind on those so this was a good refresher! Always engaging even if we couldn’t see visual aides, I remembered what I had drawn in...Read full review »

Geology was my favorite science class. I enjoy using my imagination to visualize the Geological past surrounding me in eastern Idaho and Yellowstone. Thank you!
lsiroun via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/29/21
Great podcast. Big picture geology and movements of the earth’s crust is always good, but can you do one on pegmatites found within granites? Kudos to the podcast
hylacedros via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/27/21
This is by far the best geology podcast, as a earth/climate science student on the east coast (Maine) it’s awesome to learn what’s going on the Pacific Northwest

On the other side of the cascades, a man, a legend, THE nick Zentner tells us geology stories. Thank you sir!

I am working on my PhD in geology in Colorado. Most of my work involves stratigraphy, but I love listening to Nick’s podcast to get the “hard rock” perspective on geologic time. He has built an increasingly complex view of the tectonic history of the American west including a lot of recent...Read full review »

Just great to hear NZentner delve into Geology, even if we miss out on the blackboard & props. Well, what else are we to do between livecasts? Keep it going N - all you’re efforts are greatly appreciated.

Hello Zentnerds! I’m a jeweler in the SF Bay Area who studied igneous petrology in grad school back in the Paleozoic. I listen to podcasts while I make jewelry. Nick’s podcast is the best geology podcast out there, and I can say this because I listen to them ALL. No joking. Nick doesn’t add...Read full review »

Enjoying the podcast! You have a “Big Lebowski” style in your presentation that makes it even better. Listening from Spokane, former Geology enthusiast, EWU grad MS ‘95.

Thank you Nick. I am one of those rare people that would rather listen to somethng then watch. So I a glad you do this podcast (even if it is an afterthought sometimes).
TheGoonShow via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/16/21
What a great opportunity to learn the fundamentals of geology and further. Understandably the content focuses on Washington State and while interesting in itself one can certainly take the principles offered here and enjoy exploring and learning about your local rocks and topography.

I’m about to start hiking the Pacific Crest Trail this summer, which traces across California, Oregon and Washington, and this podcast has been incredible for learning about the geology of the Pacific Northwest.

Love his style! Very conversational and easy to listen to, but enlightening to the person who wants a traveler’s casual knowledge about geology.

I found the podcast from the livestream from home. I enjoy listening while out and about. Interesting introduction to geology and geology in the Pacific Northwest. Nick is personable, knowledgable and fantastic at explaining geological processes.

Thanks Nick , long time listener , first review, your podcasts have helped me learn more about geology the Career field I wish I pursued and hopefully one day will, help pass many hours at work as well as help send me to sleep sometimes. Cheers Jay from Timaru , New Zealand

I found this podcast after stumbling onto Nick’s Geology 101 videos. I think part of what makes him so enjoyable to listen to is that he makes the podcast feel more like a conversation WITH you rather than AT you, like so many over-produced “professional” podcasts do (I’m talking to you BBC,...Read full review »
