Makes You Smarter than You Were Before

Astro/Geophysicist Dr. Stuart Robbins doesn’t suffer fools. He’s as nerdy and dry as can be on the surface, but as you listen you start to realize that underneath his brainiac exterior beats the heart of a droll, take-no-prisoners comedian and social commentator. I was surprised to discover that Dr. Robbins doesn’t like Monty Python, because his 100th episode special was so spoofy and funny that I laughed out loud through the whole thing. But don’t be misled. Dr. Robbins’ intent is serious. His inspiration for this podcast was his desire to overturn, or at least challenge, the imbecilic “worldview" of conspiracy theorists and fake scientists who showcase their hokum and woo on the Coast to Coast AM radio show, and elsewhere. For me, it’s been a great learning experience regarding the fundamentals of astronomy. As you listen, you will become a lot more knowledgeable about what’s true, and what isn’t true, when confronted with the ongoing hoaxes that occupy the tiny minds of people who desperately want to believe that NASA is an agent of the Illuminati. You mean the Earth really is not hollow? There are no alien cities on Mars? Who knew??? P.S. Dr. Robbins is on hiatus since mid-2017. Listen to all 170 episodes, and then start nagging him to get back on the air. We need ya, Doctor Stu. Shalom.

Excellent

I have been powering through the back catologue of these episodes for a few weeks now and I have yet to find an uninteresting episode. Dr. Stuart Robbins does an amazing job of making serious science understandable. I will be hoenst and say there are plenty of things that go over my head, but ultimately I can follow along.

I love that he uses interesting and far out wacky claims to find an "in" to explain real science to people like me who need the controversial hook to be interested. I have learned so much and am frequently floored by the depth and of research the is presented in these concise segments.

I just realized that he had been on a long break, I have not listened to the newest episode, but I hope he's back to stay.
