Customer Reviews

Highly Informative

Dr. Shorey is a geologist who is extremely knowledgeable about earth science and the other science topics that he covers in this podcast. There are many qualities that I appreciate about this podcast. As a threshold matter, the audio quality is good. In terms of the content, Dr. Shorey presents the sometimes dense material in an accessible and engaging way. His sense of humor shows itself too. Laudably, there is no hype or bias in Dr. Shorey’s presentation. He has a wide-ranging scientific mind which he uses to explore various topics beyond geology. He clearly explains the science behind climate change, evolution, and many other important topics. Here in the U.S., there is an astounding lack of scientific literacy. People of all stripes owe it to themselves to enjoyably learn more about the science explained so well here. Please keep it up, Dr. Shorey.

Useful, methodical education in my car!

This podcast has been filling the gaps between half-remembered general science classes and adding a lot of real-world-applicable examples of how the knowledge is used: like choosing building sites near water, where the ground under my feet comes from, and how weather prediction works. I'm not in the Earth Sciences fields, but this introduction to the basics has been very interesting! Now I can understand the basics of some of the climate debates in the news, as well as why some of that is so complex!

Educational, Informative & Concise

Dr. Shorey’s breath of knowledge is only surpassed by his preparation. His lectures cover a broad range of subjects which are well researched, organized and presented. Dr. Shorey - keep up the good work and keep the knowledge flowing.
