Love this podcast so much!

I wake up every Wednesday morning (plus one Friday morning per month) and think to myself, “New Planetary Radio episode today! Sweet!”. I then refresh my podcasts often until it’s actually posted. Matt is a great host, while the guests and content are always quality. A newer listener, but definitely a listener for life. Can’t wait until I graduate grad school, get a job, and can manage to start donating to the Planetary Society!

Keep Bill Nye off the podcast!

Generally, the content is good, but in the live episode featuring Bill Nye, you tanked. It would have been a good episode if you kept him from speaking. He added nothing to the program, and the way he talked to the kids made me want to vomit. I understand that the audience was young, but they weren’t infants. Everyone else on the panel talked to them appropriately, but Nye talked to them as if they were 2 years old. Arrogant and condescending. Really, not your best work. Please stick with real planetary scientists to interview, who can actually contribute something of value in the future.

Great Podcast

As a space enthusiast I always look forward to the weekly radio show! The monthly Space Policy Series is great to because it clues you in on what’s going on in DC in regards to space. I highly recommend this podcast!
