A joy to listen to

This podcast always brightens my day. In a world where so much negativity exists, this is truly a welcome burst of positivity to raise my spirits. An absolute joy to listen. I’m grateful for all of the hard work that goes into it.

I love Planetary Radio!

I have been a member of the Planetary Society for a several years and a lister even longer. Great window on space!

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!
