Great show, sick of Neil’s interrupting

The show is great, content is great most of the time but Neil’s constant interrupting of guests is terrible. It’s rude and irritating to listen to, let alone how the guest feels. Just coz you’ve got something to say, doesn’t mean you can’t wait until they are done to say it!

Great content, sound levels need work.

Love the show and content, NGT is a great presenter and really presents content in a way that non-astrophysicists (me) will grasp.

Some episodes, not all have really unbalanced audio, you go from not being able to hear them to Neil blasting your ears off with his laugh haha.

Rabbit's Hole ,

For the dumb mass asses.

The people who think they are "geeky" and "into science" because they watched the most basic and simplistic 15-minute Neil DeGrasse Tyson or Bill Nye video are unbearable. People who are legitimately interested in science are completely turned off by Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye. Nothing they have to say is relevant to real scientists.

EDIT: People who are into those two tend to be into Elon Musk (another person I can't stand).

These idiot actor clowns are still doing podcasts. Wake up people reclaim your brains.
