The hosts present mind-blowing concepts in a digestible way. This is just the podcast I’ve been looking for. Thanks so much for making this invaluable resource.

A lot of astronomy shows are news-driven, following recent discoveries or space tech developments. Fewer give the astronomy & physics knowledge that makes those news items meaningful. This is one that does.

Sparkling minds who share a gift for shedding light on some of the beautiful mysteries of our universe.

I love these guys, every episode is interesting and informative and engaging.

Alien spirals in the sky? Lizard people running the government? Maybe! An easy listening physics podcast by two professional in the field? Definitely!
zormble via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/13/23
This podcast has taught me a lot about the universe. I am very tuned in to every single episode. ☺️
DrezzyZ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/23
I really enjoy this podcast, especially when he says something on the complicated side. Then he’ll explain it in a way that you or I could understand. I think that more people should listen to this, I get really excited whenever I get a notification that a new episode came out! Overall, great...Read full review »

You should be ashamed of yourself. The whole point of science is to question everything, not to beaten into repetitive submission. What exactly has theoretical physics done for us? Wireless communication? Wow. We had that in the 30’s, and look how that has worked out for us. You high paid...Read full review »

Love this podcast. My only issue is that there is only 58 of them lol make more! Please. Also, episode 58; pushed me to write a review. That stuff needed to be said and I think Dan said it well. No sick burns, just some real talk. Keep at it and excited to hear the next
Elite1564 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/22
For someone who is interested in science at a deeper level but comes from a very different discipline this is a very accessible and joyous delve into some of these recurrent subjects which manages to simply explain without overly dimming down. The perfect balance.
yousofk via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/13/22
Between something presented as understandable to the layman, and something tear-bringing boring to someone who knows anything about it. I’m not an astrophysicist—or even a physicist—but I have done some collegiate level study, and much more reading on some of these subjects. This podcast is...Read full review »

Just a really great show!
Battleboy5152 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 10/20/22
Few podcasts offer the tremendous opportunity to learn about something so fundamental to this universe yet also so hidden to most people. Dan Hooper and Shalma Wegsman offer a dynamic approach to learning some of the most interesting and mysterious physics concepts. What sets them apart is a...Read full review »

I’ve had a life long interest in astronomy and cosmology, indeed all of science. As a retired chemical engineer I finally have time to catch up on some of the amazing scientific advances in recent decades. I’ve found this podcast to be one of the best at helping me catch up. I think the most...Read full review »

By far the most informative podcast about physics I’ve come across. Why is this one of the best? Most other physics podcasts only touch on the concepts, you can go between them and routinely hear all of the same topics (ex. How general relativity isn’t comparable with quantum mechanics… ext.)....Read full review »

To future podcast lister. If you read this, and listen, after enjoyed the show you must comment and 5 stars. Give ‘em a reward for the hard work they put into the episode.
MSUcatz1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/07/22
I love the dynamics of this podcast and you both make it so interesting to follow. Thank you!
Fortesias via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/22
As a non-scientist who’s interested in physics I love this podcast. It’s not dumbed down but it is very clearly presented, and the subjects covered are fascinating. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to get an insight into the big questions of our universe.
Digriz01 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/07/22
Shalma (female host) has a speech pattern that is most annoying. She has the habit of producing a rising inflection as if she is asking a question -even when she isn't. Also she doesn't seem to talk into the microphone, her voice sometimes goes into whisper mode and I can't even her...Read full review »

Friendly. Relaxed. Informative. Excellent. RM Edinburgh.
Roddyrook via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/21/22
One of the best explanations of QFT and why the theory developed the way it did. Overall the theoretical physics discussions in this podcast have been insightful and unique in the way it’s presented.
cesar_o via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/18/22
Bends my brain in a way that feels so good! And I love the dynamic of the hosts; sort of a teacher/student office hours vibe, although they both clearly know what they’re talking about. I hope people are listening to this podcast, because I really want it to continue!
lmaginaryBoy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/22
I love this.
Brad76ohio via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/22
One of my favourites.

Shalma needs speech therapy and Dan Hooper is a waste of space. He has a hideous odor problem in real life.
hvfdgbjk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/08/22
Wish it was longer and dumbed down for us mortals. My head does hurt a bit … in a good way though . Well presented too . Thanks .
ginger177 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/18/22
It's hard to believe that someone intelligent enough to study physics at the graduate level can't string together a sentence without saying 'like' every other word. Maybe they thought she would appeal to a younger audience or the average lay person, but I find that along with her...Read full review »

Social justice and science make a really bad podcast. I gave up. I’ll look for a real science podcast.
mattJediNova via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/09/22
I’m more a Physics Frontiers listener- but they have a very irregular posting schedule. I’d like more GR in my ideal fantasy podcast but this one is well done, interesting, and thought provoking, which is what good science should do! Keep up the excellent work. Make lots of more shows so I have...Read full review »

I love this show and I’m in awe at all the work you put into it! I’m a fan of physics podcasts and this is one of the best. Just one comment: is it possible to turn down the music (or avoid it completely) for long segments when someone’s speaking? The high volume is very distracting and the bass...Read full review »

I did find this podcast by accident only but I do not want to miss it anymore. Its an (hopefully almost) endless conversation between two very clever human beings as deep as they are charming - simply about the physical miracles we all live in.
Janoshik via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 08/18/21
I love this podcast - can’t wait for new episodes. Was looking for something just like this for awhile. Love the explanations. I didn’t take physics, and probably wouldn’t love the calculations and formulas, but I’m fascinated with the theories, conclusions, and the history and enjoy Dan &...Read full review »

Radiation doc here. Find myself really looking forward to your podcasts. Great explanations of topics, I really didn’t fundamentally understand, when I took physics.
hkfhkvjf via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/21
The hosts discuss cutting-edge topics with well laid out explanations and descriptions.
hozro93 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/21
This is a wonderful podcast that brings very advanced topics to interested listeners. Dan and Shalma have a fantastic ability to describe complicated topics where you can truly understand why they are important.
BryanJField via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/21
Best cosmos podcast going. Great synergy between cast. Good range of topics that are explained well. However, please stop playing music midpodcast, while you are talking, it’s distracting.
Gmogtfsa via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/10/21
The perfect mix of entry-level physics to deep-level philosophy and vice versa. 🙂
frank.schlegel via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 03/09/21
As someone who is just starting to explore ideas in physics, this has been so thrilling and profoundly interesting. It’s been so enjoyable to listen to you both, thank you for taking me on some pretty epic journeys!
watermonkey12358 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/05/21
Superb. No frivolous waffling. Both thought provoking and highly enjoyable to listen to. Superb.
