Astounding Universe

Series produced by Jim Metzner

Series image

From the producer of Pulse of the Planet and the world’s most widely read astronomer - a weekly freewheeling exploration of the astonishing world of science. What’s the most inexplicable object in the cosmos? When is Doomsday coming? The heaviest thing in the universe? Nikola Tesla’s dark secret? All this and more, each week on Astounding Universe.

Bob Berman is the kind of guy who can tell you - without benefit of asking Siri - the temperature and specific gravity of Jupiter. And the scary thing is, he'll invariably be right. Working on this program with Bob is a bit like tapping the wild energy of a fumarole. We research our facts but when we step into the booth, it's unscripted; each episode is unrehearsed and spontaneous. Our credo is to amaze, astound, tell a good story and have a really good time of it. I can pretty much guarantee you'll learn stuff about the world that you never knew, and enjoy the ride.
We're launching as both a podcast and radio series - if there are stations willing to take a program that varies in length from four to nine minutes in length! We welcome your streaming Astounding Universe on your website. Contact us for details.
