From neuroscientists and engineers to authors and television producers, Sean and his guests talk about the biggest ideas in science, philosophy, culture and much more.

Super Interesting (5/5)

Sean made an impact on my the first time he was on JRE, I’m super happy he’s started his own podcast!

Value for time invested (5/5)

This is precisely what we need; more podcasts embracing the long-format so that it’s possible to really get into and unpack all the relevant aspects on any given topic. Also, even though I wouldn’t object to many more episodes relating to quantum mechanics, it is so nice to hear about a variety of different topics. To anyone that might be reading this, definitely give it a listen. I am fairly confident that you won’t regret it.

Superb (5/5)

Sean Carol is a brilliant theoretical physicist based at Cal Tech. For some reason he has decided to take some time to produce a podcast. The result is amazing. And in it he covers a wide spectrum of interesting subjects, many of them quite distant from Physics. Among other things Carol has written a number of interesting scientific popularizations. One of them, the big picture, encompasses many aspects of the humanities. This is clearly reflected in this extremely interesting podcast. I highly recommend it to just about everyone.

Sean is the best (5/5)

It’s crazy that every single sentence that comes out if this man is interesting. We are very fortunate to have such a brilliant physist that is able and willing to put in the time to communicate with the average joe.
