Black Holes are actually Gravity Holes

After listening to your ‘How do you destroy a Black Hole? Episode, it became obvious that a far better name for a Black Hole would be a Gravity Hole. The name Gravity Hole would actually describe what it is but also how it works.

1 great host, 1 cringe host

I loved this show when it was just Daniel (Jorge was away or something). Now Jorge's back.

He's a smart guy, nothing against him personally, but Jorge makes this podcast unlistenable for me. He is so corny and cringeworthy. He interjects some cringeworthy horrible joke or comment every minute. He is so un-funny and lame it totally ruins this show for me. The point of this show isn't to be funny; funny is just a bonus. So if you are failing at being funny, probably just stick to the main thing, i.e. explaining the universe.

I've really loved some of these episodes, the topics are great, and Daniel does a truly great job. I just wish it was only Daniel. Must be a tough situation when you have a co-host and they are so corny and cringe but what can you do, fire them?

Too bad. Would have been one of my favorite podcasts. As is though, I don't listen to it ever.

So great

The questions all ever had from the best story telling. Scientists jargon always obscure the answer that I am so looking to know as an average citizen, but Daniel and Jorge have the simplest and colloquial way to explain complex concepts.
