Daniel Whiteson + Jorge Cham = Must Hear Physics Podcast
As an off-campus grad student, I’m always looking for new podcasts to fill my treks to class. I’ve loved other HowStuffWorks podcasts like ‘Stuff You Should Know,’ ‘Stuff They Don’t Want You to Know,’ ‘Tech Stuff,’ and now- ‘Daniel and Jorge Explain the Universe.’
Daniel has a rare combination of expertise and the ability to simply, yet thoroughly, explain fundamental and often complex foundations of physics. Jorge has an endearing charm, and he serves as a nice foil and everyman for Daniel’s physics know-how. A must listen podcast for all inhabitants of our universe.
Abostutely amazing. Reminds me of 'stuff you should know' just bit more sciencey. Super interesting!
Very digestible episodes about topics i love
