“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 Artificial Intelligence podcast. I was looking for a podcast heavy in the topics of astrophysics and quantum mechanics. This podcast did not disappoint!
Each episode is a very manageable 30 minutes or so, and what makes it so unique is that in addition to having two guest physicists, Dr. Ben also invites a guest with very little knowledge about physics. With that format, the listener is experiencing the podcast similar to how the guest is, in that some very difficult concepts are being explained so that even a lay person can understand them. What’s more, Dr. Ben instills a lot of his quirky humor into each episode. Do yourself a favor and subscribe to this podcast!”
