This is an absolutely excellent podcast, with a nearly perfect blend of technical detail and pacing from one sub-topic to the next. The interviewer (Markus Voelter) clearly has considerable technical expertise, but does not derail the flow of the interview by showing off; at the same time he asks the right questions to keeps things moving along. I cannot overstate the overall quality of this podcast.

I regret to say that I accidentally hit the two star rating while trying to find the place to submit these comments. I then submitted a five star review to make up for that mistake as best I could.

Sublime

Detailed technical knowledge about complex subjects presented coherently. If I were packing up to join a human colony on another planet I would definitely bring as many episodes of this podcast as I could.

One of my all-time favorite podcasts

You will learn something meaningful from each episode no matter how much or how little you know about the topic.

What I like most about Omega Tau is that it has exposed me to interesting problems in fields that never seemed that interesting to me (how do you build a seal around a piston that weighs 10 million tonnes? Episode 299). There is just the right level of technical depth to make things interesting without being overwhelming. Educational and entertaining!
