I highly recommend this podcast! Very informative and it gives me a pretty good chuckle here and there. I’ve learned so much from listening to this show. Thanks, Looking Up!
Dean Regas Rocks!
I love going to the Cincinnati Observatory but I sometimes don’t make it there as often as I’d like. Listening to Dean and Anna on this podcast gives me my astronomy fix! They’re wonderful to listen to, and have a good back and forth between them. Dean does a very good job of explaining complicated astronomy topics in a way that is easy to understand and accessible to just about everyone. I highly recommend this podcast, and if you live in the Cincinnati area be sure to visit Dean at the Cincinnati Observatory and attend one of his programs. It’s really amazing!
Great first couple of episodes!
A nice listen!
