The Hosts are great

For a long time I’ve been wanting to hear the voices of indigenous astronomers speak out about Mauna Kea and you all did it. Also liked hearing the stories of how deal with colonial culture in the STEM journey.

Hooked!

Came across it from listening to and interview with Katie Mack on Ologies. Such a vibrant, brilliant and engaging show!

Sounds like high schoolers

When I think back to cosmic vertigo I have a great fondness for learning. Now I feel like I’m listening to gossiping high schooler who only know tiktok. Like omg.
I couldn’t make it through the first full podcast without having to stop and listen to something else. Maybe I’ll try again in another 3 years…
