In Parade Magazine’s recent article, “12 Podcasts We Love for Every Pop Culture Fan” we were happily surprised to learn that not only did StarTalk Radio make their list, but so did Playing with Science.

We made it! StarTalk Radio and Playing with Science named “12 Podcasts We Love for Every Pop Culture Fan” by Parade Magazine.


Here’s what Parade Magazine said about StarTalk Radio, which was listed second in the article:

“If you like Neil DeGrasse Tyson, try StarTalk Radio. This podcast is a space-lover’s dream. And, yes, it’s hosted by Mr. Cosmos himself.”

But we’re even happier about what they said about Playing with Science:

“If you like Monday Night Football, try Playing with Science. Soccer player and broadcaster Gary O’Reilly teams up with comedian Chuck Nice to scientifically break down iconic sports moments.”

Seems Parade Magazine is just the latest publication to discover how wonderful Gary and Chuck are, something we’ve known all along. And while Parade only mentioned fans who like football, the fact is that Playing with Science is also perfect for fans of baseball, basketball, cycling, soccer, gymnastics, hockey, martial arts, surfing, tennis, golf, and more. We’ve had top athletes from all of those sports, including Kareem Abdul Jabbar and other Los Angeles Lakers from the Showtime dynasty, current and former NFL pros Ryan Fitzpatrick, Kordell Stewart and John Urschel, soccer star Hope Solo, world champion surfer Paige Alms, baseball greats Ron Darling, Geoff Blum and J.P. Arencibia, PGA Tour pro golfers Geoff Ogilvy and Rob Labritz, tennis star Jared Donaldson, and even controversial cycling legend Lance Armstrong. And the list goes on and on.

What about you? Have you been listening to Playing with Science? If not, now is the perfect time to check it out. You can listen to Playing with Science wherever you listen to podcasts, but to save you some time, here are direct links:

That’s it for now. Keep Looking Up!
