I have to this, this was a complete surprise and I didn’t even realize anyone was keeping track. And yet, my friend and colleague James Maynard brought this bit of news to my attention. The list comes from PlayPodcast.net, a site that that offers free listening for hundreds of podcasts and (apparently) ranks them according to various categories. For this list, they ranked the best astronomy podcasts this year.
Guess who made the list?
- Walkabout the Galaxy
- The Cosmic Companion
- Stories From Space
- Space Nuts
- Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures
I’m not sure if this represents their own assessment or based on reviews, but I’ll take it. Also, note that The Cosmic Companion is the podcast of my buddy James. I invite you to check it out seeing as how he has some very cool stories, is a NASA alumni, and interviews some very interesting people (scientists, researchers, astronauts, etc.).

Stories from Space is really good! And if those other podcasts are worthy of being on the same list as Stories from Space, I’ll have to check them out.
Oh, stop! (or don’t) And yes, they are really great. I recommend The Cosmic Companion, James has some really good stories and interviews going.
