Too long intro/outro, forced humor that is frankly childish, not natural feeling or in touch with the guests or the audience. The content can be amazingly interesting, but the level package needs a lot of upgrading. I've stopped listening because I couldn't bear it anymoreRead full review »

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. ...Read full review »

Global standard scientists explain it all in the style of a Big Bang take away at Sheldon’s. No maths. All plain talking descriptions and conjectures.

Lots of blah blah. Lots of unnecessary and unfunny humor.

I love this podcast I listened to every single one during the pandemic and can’t wait for more. Love Ben, but my favorite is Dr. Dave Singh (last name definitely not spelled right)

Where u at bro, we want more , i could listen again 3 or 4 times but it wouldnt b new. And didnt u mention a podcast numbr to reach. I agree with that.

Incredible podcast listening it from beginning. Anybody interested in physics should listen to this.
skar3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/21
Great bedtime podcasts. Nothing like trying to parse the mysteries of neutron stars, black holes, and anti-quarks to make you forget about the day’s hassles, marvel at the universe, and help you go to sleep. Plus, I’ve learned a ton of physics!
GSV-2525 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/21
To much politics in a science podcast for my taste
Yo6382937 via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 01/15/21
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...Read full review »

As a retired engineer looking for continuing education in physics, Ben’s podcasts fit my needs perfectly. Enlightening and clear explanations make it a listening pleasure.
Bill Halberstadt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/20
Fantastic show.
P S via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/19/20
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...Read full review »

It’s back! Really missed the podcasts during lockdown(s).

I love your podcast and I am so sad because you disappeared… I just hope you are alright (not been abducted by aliens!)
Lili201717 via Apple Podcasts · Belgium · 06/18/20
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...Read full review »

Insanely interesting
Jeroen Christiaen via Apple Podcasts · Belgium · 01/07/20
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!
bcfury via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/31/19
The pairing of physicists and non physicists brings out questions the listener has. Enjoy😊
Bobbi-in-the-hole via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/26/19
The format of pairing outstanding scientist with interesting people from other walks of life makes the discussions fun and understandable. The show has an unapologetic nerdiness to it between the fruit prices, quirky analogies and puns.
Forestbirdtree via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/24/19
Interesting and often Funny, highly recommended
bsalemink via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 11/18/19
Stick to the science and try to avoid the politically correct commentary.
crazyleggs77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/01/19
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 3 episodes and I learned about...Read full review »

New insights into topics that I’ve been reading about for decades. So glad I found this podcast.
mmmurppp via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/12/19
They should make more episodes. This world desperately needs more effective and charismatic science communicators.
I demand substance via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/19
A very well done, well explained podcast.
Brad Semken via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/28/19
Great information, fun topics. Intro much too long and badly paced but that is what they make the fast forward button for, definitely not a reason to skip an episode
chemimen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/19
Great at explaining physics for laypeople!
ponytaius via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/25/19
The host and guests elucidate underlying principles and processes of physics and astronomy for the curious in this slightly quirky, at times esoteric, well produced podcast. It’s my favourite, I frequently replay old episodes, great food (fruit) for thought!
peter100gs via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/01/19
This podcast is unreal! Somehow Ben is able to present very complex topics in a way a simpleton like me can understand, without dumbing it down! I’m absolutely addicted, I think it’s driving my girlfriend mad but I’m keeping science in my heart!
Callan Richardson via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/27/19
Love this podcast. Ben explains physics in a way anyone can understand and makes it really exciting. He's been gone several months.....where could he be? One of my favs.Read full review »

I almost didn’t listen to this because the logo looked unprofessional.... super glad I gave it a listen. Fantastic setup - super knowledgeable ppl every episode. Great non-PhD guests asking all the right questions. Thanks for putting this podcast on!
ZacAdam via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/19
This podcast is one of several little known but high value podcasts that successfully explain or translat to analogies some deep science. Outstanding.
Good-listenering via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/29/19
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...Read full review »

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...Read full review »

This podcast delves into physical science in an understandable way. The presenter has a way of reducing things to a level that’s easy to get.
richardpruen via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/02/18
This is the only show I have ever found that deals with difficult concepts, many of which don’t get covered in popular physics books, and yet does a great job of it. As a non-scientist but still intense physics enthusiast, this is unlike anything else.
prodcasr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/17/18
I only wish there were more episodes...
SammyTheRadar via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 09/13/18
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!
Mari2992 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/11/18
Just stick to the science. Stop trying to push your PC cultural agendas down our throats.

Passionate ppl talking about marvelous worlds. Great up-to-date science.

This is one of the very few podcasts which I will always download, every episode, every time.
YankyL via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/18
I have tried to listen to a lot of science/physics podcasts, and this one was the easiest to get into, had really qualified people and one of the most informative
