Excellent

Quality learning and laughs. Has a bit of a learning curve for new listeners but I have such a better understanding of space and science having listens to this for 3 years.

I’m Done

I can’t listen to one more show with Chuck Nice as a co-host. I’ve never met him and he seems to be likable and good and decent person, but his constant interruptions, his shouting, the boisterous, forced laughter, and his habit of changing listener questions to suit his interest has become too much of a distraction for me. What happened to Lynn Koplitz, Maeve Higgins and Leighann Lord? Why can’t we have more Eugene Mirman, Paul Mecurio and Harrison Greenbaum? 5+ stars for Dr. Tyson’s efforts to increase science literacy, 1 star for the needless distractions that drag the show down and zero stars for me being an internet troll.
