Great podcast except for the detailed coverage of routine satellite launches. Those take up a lot of time and put you to sleep. I would not use up podcast time with that.
Podcast is an audio medium. That means we LISTEN to it. Please stop interviewing Rajjit Kuldressha CEO of Space Machines until you can get him on a better audio connection, and also, maybe do something about the aviary in which the interviews are conducted. (Please apply this advice to all interviews) Otherwise, love the show. I have to skip over the space vehicle launches due to boredom though. You could reduce the length of the show if you skip the unnecessary previews of every segment before and after every segment. (A shorter program would be preferable to a long one stuffed with filler)
It is so refreshing to a science podcast that avoids politicised science and reports the information relatively free of politics. Most American or British science podcast have a strong political component that has no place in science.
Why do non-health focused podcasters feel the need to talk about Covid-19? Most of most episodes are recordings of launches. It gets a little old. 10.21.20: Another report on COVID and climate change and cognitive decline. Why?
... no one does science podcasting better than Stuart Gary! He presents current discoveries and observations with clear and understandable explanations. I look forward to each episode!
Love this podcast, but Stu Gray is know-it-all who thinks he has to "jump" real scientists with their own words and discoveries instead of being the idiot journalist he is. Stu, get over it, you are not a scientist and would know a black hole from a a-hole. QUIT PUTTING YOURSELF INTO THE STORY
Good podcast...though some of their opinions and research is slighly skewed when expounding on sociological effects and studies.
I don't have time to dig through science journals, but I also consider myself to be an enthusiast of the cosmos. Stuart solves my problem by sharing the biggest news in all of spacetime each week on Spacetime!
It's great to hear that UTSA is sponsoring your show! SpaceTime is my favorite source for for the latest news of what's going on in space. Your shows are always informative and entertaining.
SpaceTime is very useful if you want to be up to speed on all things space without having to sift through all the bad science reporting out there. Stuart knows his stuff and interviews experts from time to time. It’s the best.
Was very sad when Starstuff was axed. So glad to find Stuart Gary is still at it with this new podcast.
I listen to get the very latest news on astronomy, astrophysics, and space technology. A bit too much of an Australian bent, but the guy's from down under, so ....
I have listened to several different astronomy podcasts over the years. This one is far and away the best. It is the only one I make sure never to miss. Although Mr. Gary is apparently a scientific layman, the depth and breadth of his knowlege of astronomy, and space science are truly impressive. He obviously does not read just the popular literature. He on top of the important professional journals. This enables him to ask wonderfully insightful questions in his interviews of practicing scientists. I also enjoy his condensed audio feeds from space launches. I could go on and on, but I won't bore you. If you are interested in astronomy, listen to a couple of episodes of SpaceTime. You will be hooked.
Stuart Gary has returned from the foolish cancellation of Star Stuff. Subscribe and get your astronomy and cosmology fix. Welcome back Stuart!
My wife and I have been long time listeners to this podcast. We were so incredibly sad when it was briefly cancelled by ABC (Australia). It is a great podcast for those interested in astronomy and space exploration. We appreciate that the topics are covered in greater detail than most news shows give these topics, and Stuart Gary does a great job lining up interviews with real experts on the topics.
Star Stuff is my favorite astronomy podcast despite some tough competition. Great interviews and Stuart is a pro at distilling the most interesting astronomy news. Glad to have the show back.
I have been listening to Star Stuff for years; I listen to the day it comes downloaded. It’s a wrap up news from the Astronomical world from the last few days. It is fast-paced, informative and full of detailed interviews with experts who know their Star Stuff. This current incarnation gives us TWO episodes each. Often he tells me about Star Stuff that happened at Cape Canaveral, only 180 miles from my house, that I wouldn’t otherwise have known. I don’t know how Stuart keeps up with all this Star Stuff - He must have a staff of a hundred ears and eyes, listening and watching. If you care about Star Stuff, this will fill your ears!
I was very surprised to discover that Star Stuff had lost it's spot on ABC Radio, but I'm VERY pleased to see that it continues in podcast-form, and with no detriment in quality. I've been listening to Star Stuff since before 1998, and one of my strongest memories of it, is tuning into ABC Newsradio and Star Stuff being the first thing we listened to after setting-up the stereo in our newly acquired home. I have some vague memories of listening to Star Stuff before 1998, during the hour-long drive home from my then girlfriend's home on the opposite side of Melbourne; thanks to this program (and a nice "bonus cup" of coffee), I managed to stay awake and alert as I negotiated Melbourne's late-night Sunday traffic. The show is packed with information, interesting and accurate, and Stuart's so well respected within the Astronomical community, his guests are second to none. Further to this, Star Stuff is largely responsible for my own podcast being quite Space-centric Stuart Gary and Star Stuff are easily my favourite science programs, and an inspiration to many interested in science, astronomy and podcasts in-general..
The weekly information presented on Star Stuff is encyclopedic and enthralling--from the lunar surface to the farthest stellar nursery, Star Stuff delivers 30 minutes packed with valuable material for the curious. I greatly enjoy the explanations on Star Stuff-- thorough, concise and cogent enough for someone (like me) with only a very casual knowledge of the hard science involved in understanding and exploring our universe. It is one of my favorite weekly podcasts.
So good to have Star Stuff back. The new feed works well and I can now stop my little panic. Great information delivered in an easy to understand style. Highly recommended...
Stuart Gary is a pro. This podcast isn't a regurgitation of headline space news. Stuart gets interviews with the experts and newsmakers, and always has great guests.
Star Stuff - hosted by Stuart Gary, is a journey into antipodean astronomy. The virtual tour across the universe dives deep into the latest #science headlines and often includes the countdown of rocket launches for soundscape fans. Gary's conversations with scientists are inspired bits of eureka moments. The program has a storied history and numerous fans who were quite vocal when the program had a brief cessation. Star Stuff is one of my favorite podcasts.
