Main Engine Cut Off

Main Engine Cut Off PodcastHost Anthony Colangelo brings you weekly news and opinions on spaceflight, space exploration, and the latest big stories in astronomy. It's refreshing (and often rare) to hear a quality monologue show these days, but Main Engine Cut Off is definitely one such podcast. MECO contains some great interviews too, but in the main, it's a solid solo show.

Planetary Radio

The Hyacinth Disaster

The Hyacinth DisasterAnother fiction podcast, The Hyacinth Disaster is a self-contained 7 part hard sci-fi story about a crew of asteroid miners who run into some pretty big trouble.

SpacePodSpacePod is a really accessible interview show. Both presenter Carrie Nugent and her long list of guests know their stuff, but have conversations that mere a mortal like myself can understand without feeling left out. It's a weekly show with a decent sized back catalogue to work through.

WeMartians PodcastA highly-produced documentary-style show sprinkled with plenty clips and actuality. Mars is the core subject here, but the range of episode topics are pretty wide, ranging from technology to planetary science, and beyond. New episodes tend to be released every two weeks.

StarTalk Radio

StarTalk RadioAnother of the space podcast big guns, and it's hard to ignore anything that has Neil deGrasse Tyson in it. Episodes of StartTalk aren't always about space, but the wider subject of science in general. It's probably the perfect introduction to space podcasts though, for someone who's very new to the medium.
