A Conversation with Good Friends

This is like the late night conversations you have with good friends you only see occassionally. Interesting, funny, informative, and addicting. While there is no particular thematic thrust - like Neil Degrasse Tyson's StarTalk for instance - the wanderings from topics A to Z works better than you'd expect. Great job guys!

My favorite podcast

I’ve been watching Simon Whistler’s YouTube shows for a while, and was excited to find this podcast several months ago. I love educational and non-fiction content, and Simon and Daven definitely keep it fun and interesting. My favorite thing about this podcast is the wide variety of topics, but they are all interesting and worth learning more about. I also enjoy the banter and relaxed feel of the podcast, as well as their genuine reactions to surprising facts.

Keep up the good work, guys! And I’d love to hear more content on space and tech (which you’ve said in the past is less interesting to women... maybe as a whole, but here’s one of your female audience who loves space).

Catch you later,
-Kitty
