AMAZING

This podcast is on my: "This is the best thing I've ever listened to" list. It's main draw is the biology of the planet, but that doesnt mean the characters are not interesting, they're so funny. Listen to this podcast.

It's ok

It's ok. Main character is kinda whiney and not very funny. Probably would have liked it more if she didnt say the F-word so much. I originally got the podcast on Pocket Casts app and there was no label about language content

Marathoned podcast

I listen to this entire podcast all at once. As a person getting their biology masters and a fan of The Martian by Andy Weir, I loved the found audio style and going on a biological journey as she described the alien life. I appreciated the creativity put into the aliens, and how they tried to think of the ways life would have evolved separately from earth. A pet peeve of mine is sci-fi media with obvious earth animal origins, must just add something crazy like horns. Not in this show!
Also Spirits podcast sent me here.
