Fascinating Listening

I started listening to this podcast and found it fascinating to listen to. It does have some technical content but it is done in a very understandable way. It would only be better in person!


This is a pretty good podcast, and extremely informative. It helps to have a background in astronomy (from either a class or a hobby) because there are a fair amount of scientific terms and concepts in the lectures. The lecturer is very into the topic, though, and the sequential arrangement of the lectures makes it easy to follow. My only complaint is that some of the diagrams and pictures he talks about should be included in the album artwork for the podcast (hint!).

Very informative and enjoyable

You can tell that R. Pogge really knows his stuff as he explains it in such an understandable manner. I find myself extending my morning walks to finish each lecture. As the story unfolds you are constantly reenforcing what you heard in the previous lecture, as it is a stepping stone to the current lecture, which becomes a step toward the next lecture. The course notes and visual aids being available online is a huge bonus. Its not often you get to take a college course for free. I hope he puts up the first few missing lectures of this course and maybe even the 161 course or more advanced courses.
