I just started listening to this podcast and so far it is very good. The hosts are very easy to follow as they go over the topics in good detail. There is plenty for novices and people with a fair understanding of astronomy here.
If you interested in other science topics I highly recommend the Titanium Physicist podcast (physics made easy and my favorite). The other podcasts from the Brachiolope Media Network are also very good, Science Sort Of (science news and beer), Weekly Wienersmith(Zombie ants and other neat things) , and the new hit show Technically Speaking(engineering). Another great show is Skeptics guide to the Universe (they have an agenda and are very bias but it is still worth checking out)
I know this review has more recommendations than praises for this show but like I said I am a new listener. Hopefully you will give this show a chance and a review so I can get more episodes.
P.s. if you can get Dr. Jocelyn Read on the show to sing something other than the Hulk theme song that would be fantastic.
I enjoy the science and detail , especially since there is a lot less banter than other pods.
