I love listening to it on my commute to school! I personally enjoy listening because I am a geologist, but I think this podcast is also great for those who don’t have a strong background in geology as it’s so informative and fascinating!! Can’t wait to more episodes to come!
Scientific and Exciting
This is so exciting to have a network where earth science and the inspiration behind exploration can be discussed and shared. Looking forward to engaging in all of the different types of geology-centered podcasts that this network will showcase!
Madison Ward- Undergrad Geol
I love geology and I love podcasts, so this is awesome! I love to travel so when I’m in the car for long periods of time, podcasts are what I turn to. That first episode was great and very informative! There’s only a few geology podcasts out there, so thank you for expanding on our very small niche science field! My only critique is I wish these episodes were longer, seriously I could listen to information about geology all day.
