Baker543 ,

Excellent podcast

Both interesting and informative, this podcast always seems to find a set of interesting topics to cover every episode, demonstrating the great breadth of scientific research under way in astronomy.

Petrubi ,

Finally had to unsubscribe

I really used to enjoy this podcast. The space coverage was a lot of fun, and the science segments were really interesting. But the deeply unpleasant racist undercurrent is growing week by week. Stuart Gary’s not so subtle racism against China (calling it the “Chinese coronavirus”) and inclusion of conspiracy theories (that the virus was leaked from a Chinese lab) have absolutely no place in a science podcast. You should be especially ashamed of using an otherwise scientific platform to peddle your racist views. Disappointedly I’ve had to unsubscribe.

Not Stuart Gary ,

Stuart Gary

I'm not Stuart Gary if I was you'd know because I wouldn't stop telling you that I was, shame because it covers good topics, and I'm not Stuart bloody Gary
