Terrific podcast, deserves more than 5 stars

By jsesr - Mar 27 2018
Read more
This podcast is super for conveying a feel for what is going on in this field and what the serious players are working on. Outstanding interviewees, and an interviewer who knows how to ask interesting questions and then let the interviewee talk. Strikes exactly the right balance -- not so complicated that it belongs in a classroom with a blackboard, but still enough technical depth to be interesting. I just discovered it and I will be going back and listening to all the past episodes.

Quantum Computer Enthusiast's Heaven

Content wise, this is the best podcast I've ever heard. But then again, anything other than physics seems like a waste of time to me. Simon has amazing guests each episode, each showing a new side of Quantum Computing, QM, or anything else Quantum. And each of those guests has been on the cutting edge of this technology for at least a decade or two. This podcast is perfect for driving, or any other time that one might listen to a podcast. Physics lectures are fun, but I have to see the board and take notes, which doesn't work if you're busy moving around. And everything else on the internet is all the same bs, explaining what a quantum computer is to a person with very little to no college physics courses under their belt. I'm so grateful to Simon for creating this podcast and sticking with it. This might also be the first time that I might have to start over and listen through all the episodes again once I'm all caught up.
