  • Insightful and informative.

    I absolutely enjoy all the insights and perspectives on this podcast I just wish the Ecco wasn’t so dominant on the recording of episode 71. With that said, I enjoy very much this podcast. Thank you. Look forward to see your growth.

  • Excellent podcast!

    This podcast reviews the latest developments in theoretical physics. As a former physicist, this series is great for me. It enables me to keep in touch with the latest ideas from the field I still love. The hosts do a brilliant job talking through ideas, and the topics teachers are always interesting. more

  • Different people morn differently

    I always sensed a closeness between Jim and Randy. When Randy passed Jim it seemed to me was too bereft to eulogize Randy. I don’t mean to put words in Jim’s mouth or pretend to know something I don’t, but the love between friends can be more profound than is comprehensible. I felt that depth in Jim’s closing remarks after their last show. I felt a profound sadness. I also felt he was angry that he left Jim so swiftly. Jim loved him that much.
