Devoted Fan

I look forward to every Thursday when “Space Nuts” drops in Apple podcast. I love the presentation and humor

Assertedcobra61 ,

SWEET!!!! I got some good ideas for the future

I have been listening to this podcast for a long time, and I have learned a lot more about the observable universe and the non observable universe. Maybe, for future episodes, look into Alpha Centauri. Very cool.
