Wonderful podcast

This podcast is like the Lowell observatory; wonderful. I have visited Lowell many times. The podcast has a very good nature to it.

I really love the podcasts with guest speakers. The guests are very interesting. Please continue these. The other episodes are also very enjoyable.

I would recommend this to anyone interested in science and astronomy.
