They’re smart, funny, and sometimes silly. Oh, and they cover topics that I think are cool.

I love these guys. And as hard as they work on interviews, I skip them. Audio is so poor because interviewees are on speakerphone. Too bad. Good info, but can’t listen. Five stars nonetheless.

Quite informative and always current on trending topics space topics which is important 🥹❤️
not a happy rider via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/07/22
Actual space flight events are less important to the hosts than leftist social justice agitprop. There’s nothing wrong with a leftist political podcast, it just shouldn’t masquerade as a space flight podcast.
The S.K.P. Machine via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/30/22
This podcast used to be very informative, but since about 1year, they ignore to discuss the juicy topics within the spaceflight scene. Like in the episode 324, a "short and sweet"-topic is that there have been more cracks found in one of the modules of ISS.Read full review »

The this week in space history bit at the beginning of every show is the best part of my week and now that I'm caught up I'll be doing it every week. The space new is well covered and they cover news from all across the galaxy (and beyond)Read full review »

Covers the (space) news, teaches you (space) stuff, and is entertaining at the same time. What isn’t there to like about it?
ArtOfWarfare via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/18/19
I realized that despite listening for years, I never actually wrote an actual review. The Orbital Mechanics is a fantastic project, by some really great and passionate people who care greatly about both the material and their listener base. Each episode gives a blend of both current, topical...Read full review »

Thank you so much for this podcast! Really interesting topics, I’m constantly learning something new and if I want to dig deeper you have actually useful show notes. The trio dynamic is great, the segment names are hilariously tied with space. Maybe it would be good idea to do a few episodes on...Read full review »

Love the dynamics of the three hosts, they do their research well and have great guests when they need to fill in the gaps. Every week I listen from the UK without fail!

Hartvik90 via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 06/08/19
Frustrating to listen to this podcast when they aren’t up to date and accurate on the subject matter. It is easy to monitor twitter/reddit/NSF these days to compile a better understanding of the happenings in space. This podcast should deliver best available accuracy but it does not.
ATPTourFan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/30/19
I'm actually going back to their website to start at episode one because it is abosutley worth listening to David and Ben go over various space related topics (the Manipulators episode is an early highlight). If you're interested in space, especially the hardware, you can't skip this...Read full review »

Thanks guys for putting together such a great show each an every week. I’ve been listening for almost a year now and have learned so much.

One of my favorite parts of the week is getting to listent to this podcast. Fun, Positive, and very informative about current space flight events. The new Data Relay segment is also awesome teaching about various parts of spaceflight in great detail. Awesome show!
Steveo05196 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/18
The best just got 50% better, Orbital Mechanics welcome an extra host; Valentine. Can he take the pace? He fits the show real well, so best of luck mate.
Mullumnic via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/10/18
If you like to know what’s the latest in space technology and rocket launches, then this is the perfect podcast. The hosts are very chill and pleasing to listen to, and you will learn an infinite amount of details around the subject you didn’t knew before.
Respaced via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 09/09/18
I always look forward to listening to this show on Wednesdays when it comes out (in Ireland anyway). The hosts have a great combination of enthusiasm and professionalism. I always come away learning something new.
RCsupanova via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 02/26/18

If you're looking for a technical space podcast, this is the one for you. Dave and Ben discuss spaceflight past and present to determine what may have been and what is yet to come.

I found this podcast a couple of months ago and my Tuesday's have never been the same. I can hardly wait for the next episode.

A few months ago, I started taking more of an interest in space. Not just stars and astroids, but also about human (and the occasional dog/chimp) space flight. This podcast was EXACTLY what I was looking for. Not only does it do an amazing job of coving the occational historical spaceflight...Read full review »

I love the level of technical discussion in this podcast. It's a fantastic amount for the space/kerbal literate person who hasn't taken a single engineering course in their life. I feel like I've been looking for this podcast for a long time and now I have it! Thanks so much.Read full review »

Great content, excellent attitude and energy - not too sedate, not sensationalism at all. Great work guys, keep it up. Those dulcet tones..!
Snuffles_au via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/26/17
Started with Ep1 maybe 2 months ago, currently on Ep22. I feel compelled to go in order, so you'll probably be well past 100 before I catch up. I'll catch up eventually (it was very weird listening to the episodes leading up to CRS-7 knowing what was going to happen). I've always...Read full review »

Awesome podcast for both beginners and seasoned space geeks, actual events coverage, spaceflight history and amazing guests combine into a great podcast about space exploration and technology. And the show keeps getting better with every episode.

Every Tuesday I anxiously wait for a new episode to come out. Every Tuesday for the past 2 years (almost).

This show is great. The hosts you can tell really enjoy the topic of space flight and make sure to do their research. They like to find ways to get the listeners involved and are fun to listen to. Highly recommend!
Jayce P via · 09/02/16
One of my go-to space podcasts. The summary of the previous week in space flight history and upcoming launches are alone worth the listen. The authors are willing to admit when they get some space face wrong, which is really nice to learn as a team.
Battlehawk4 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/28/16
The hosts, Ben and David, are fans of spaceflight, crewed or not. They discuss the history of spaceflight, share funny anecdotes, go into technical details of current and upcoming missions, and geek out on the exciting possibilities of the future promised by SpaceX, Blue Origin, and other private...Read full review »

Just found these guys a few weeks ago, and I’m working my way through 70 episodes. It’s like binge-watching on Netflix!

What's most enjoyable about this podcast, amid the wealth of knowledge, breadth of subject matter (yes, despite the SpaceX-ism), and consistency of release, is the passion displayed by the hosts. It's hard not to be so excited about space exploration when these two are there, week after...Read full review »
WeMartians via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/15/16

These guys are terrific. I am an aspiring aerospace engineering student, and these guys are just terrific to listen to. I’m always bummed when a new episode ends and I can’t just keep listening.
