The epitome of an epic podcast

This podcast expertly explores difficult physics concepts made fascinating and easy-to-understand solely due to the extraordinary people who are a part of this show. I cannot emphasize enough what a great resource this is for learning physics. Seriously love you guys!

Slid from an interesting program to a political platform

Six months off must have left you on bad shape. Stopped producing the program to leave the listeners to fend for themselves.

Brian Greene started a daily Einstein equation podcast, delving into the logic behind Einstein’s brilliance, and the reality of the universe.
Sean Carroll increased the episode of his varied topics during the shelter in place.
Everyone needed help through these tough and unsure times, instead we got the cold shoulder on Titanium Physicists.

We didn’t need to be told what to think, of who to vote for, or frankly your opinions on politics. This was supposed to be a science podcast. Plenty of Poitiers for personal rants.

Later.
Unsubscribing from this, same as others
that you deleted from Facebook, and Twitter.

Great scientific explanations

This gives intelligent though somewhat simple explanations of lots of physics. The science is good but the few minutes of idiotic personnel introduction and discussion at the beginning and ending is very annoying, and should be skipped. The guest science experts are really good!! But the humor often crosses the boundary beyond nerd into the stupid zone.
