Pale Blue Pod

5.0/5

Critic Rating

Pale Blue Pod is an astronomy podcast for people who are overwhelmed by the universe but want to be its friend. Astrophysicist Dr. Moiya McTier and comedian Corinne Caputo demystify space one topic at a time with open eyes, open arms, and open mouths (from so much laughing and jaw-dropping). By the end of each episode, the cosmos will feel a little less “ahhh too scary” and a lot more “ohhh, so cool!” New episodes every Monday.

"Hosted by the brilliant Dr Moiya McTier and Corinne Caputo, this podcast is everything I want an educational show to be. It’s funny, approachable, and fascinating. While every episode sits roughly between 45 minutes and an hour, it doesn’t feel like the episodes are actually that long. "

Rachel Syme • New Yorker Dec 26, 2022

"...no star stuff has been as auditorily compelling as the new “Pale Blue Pod,” a show that attempts to make complex conversations about the universe feel intimate, emotional, and profound...What you get is an honest, clear-eyed, funny, smart exchange about how eclipses work, or what the big-bang theory is all about...even just a few episodes in you feel that Caputo and McTier are here to gently take your hand and guide you across the constellations."
