Customer Reviews

Great for Amateurs

If you're like me, you have an ongoing interest in astronomy but don't have the time to pursue it much. And then there's the advanced physics and math to contend with! Astronomy Cast is an excellent review of what's happening in the world of astronomy for those of us who need a clear and condensed version. Fraser Cain acts as the host of the podcast while Dr. Pamela Gay, of Slacker Astronomy fame, gives us the scoop on such varied topics as the Big Bang, planethood, and the search for dark matter. The discussion is not "dumbed down" by any means but is simply put forth in a manner that is easily understood by all. Give it a listen! I think you'll be impressed.

Astronomy for the general population

Fraser asks the questions we wonder about and Dr. Gay answers them in terms that make sense and don't require an advanced math degree. I look forward to each episode as it brings a mental voyage of discovery. The podcast is put together with expertise. The sound quality is great and the voices of Fraser and Dr. Gay are easy on the ears and mind.

The Best Podcast... EVER!

I always loved astronomy... that is until I took my first (and last) Astronomy class in college. I felt I iust didn't have the brain muscle to wield the physics part. Frankly, I was intimidated by all the science. However, I have never let go of the awe and wonder when I looked UP. Fraser Cain and Dr. Pamela Gay have made what was for me the inaccessible aspect of astronomy within my reach with this science rich and succint podcast. This podcast has re-ignited my interest and desire to tackle the science without fear. Awesome job!
