High quality, interesting interviews packaged well!
This show is a great addition to the library of space/science enthusiasts, hobbyist or professional. Quality interviews and a good production value!
Great scientific discussion of the search for extraterrestrial intelligence
Great podcast for astronomy fans
Paul has provided the best coverage out there (by far) of Tabby's Star on this show. The episodes that delve into other non-astronomy/SETI topics are also pretty cool. My only quibble is that you won't like the (sometimes quite long) musical outtros unless you share the host's enthusiasm for weird jazz.
