5 stars!
Love this podcast! Very informative and unique. Keep it up!!!
Just enough information to make you want to find out more! Love the stories and how they are presented. Followed up on the internet to see what additional information I could find on some of these interesting facts!
Always engaging and enlightening
My new favorite podcast. I love the range of topics. It’s fun to feel like you’re at the elbow of an explorer on the verge of some great discovery. Plus, as a subscriber, I love “meeting” some of the writers and NatGeo staff.
So informative
I love this podcast so much! I learn something new with each episode and the format and hosts/guest deliver the information really well and knowledgeably without sounding boring.
This is a great podcast, very interesting and informative.
This podcast is so interesting and informative. I love the stories and I am personally a big fan of National Geographic.
Favorite podcast
This is my favorite podcast, love the movies, love the stories, and the voices are nice.
The best podcast I’ve ever found
This is by far my favorite podcast. The topics are so interesting and diverse that I never know where they’ll take me next. I learn something every time I listen. The podcast is exceptionally produced, speaking, music, effects are all clear and crisp. They keep me interested while I’m running which is typically very hard to find something that can do that. I look forward to every episode. Thank you, Nat Geo, for this amazing and fascinating podcast! Please continue to produce such great content!

Great but
Stop saying nat geo please
Great storytelling
I can’t believe I just found this Podcast. It’s great! If you like high production value podcasts, you will really enjoy this podcast.
Ok but
Global warming is fake but this podcast is still is interesting and fun cool stuff
Like a fly on the wall
Have you ever wondered what The employees at Nat Geo talk about. Have you ever said “ I wish I was a fly on the wall at Nat Geo...” Well here’s you wall, without the threat of a fly swatter. I am a junkie of information, I LOVE stories about how they made the story. This podcast feeds all my needs. Neat tidbits of information on the how and oh so cool’s , right down to the “ You had to do WHAT...???” I have always dreamed of working for Nat Geo and this podcast brings you right into the office and sits you right by the water cooler. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!

Love this!!
So interesting! Who knew that there are zombie mice. ZOMBIE MICE. Or that the ancient Egyptians were not alone, that they had neighbors who also built large pyramids. Please make the episodes a bit longer.
Love this😁
Nat geo
I like this podcast it’s very interesting except the Nat geo gets annoying they say it a lot in the podcast but I wish if they would say it every 2 or 3 podcasts

Just listen! My favorite so far is the Harem Conspiracy!
Sooo very informative and interesting! Love it
They are really informative and it helps me learn a lot of nature and animals and how to help them better at my level, even though small.
It’s perfect! I feel transported every time I listen!
super interesting!
really interesting and not too hard to follow! they talk about a variety of topics so it’s not hard to find something you like!
Great shows!
This is excellent work! So enjoy these stories. Though I agree - you are a stellar organization- the Nat Geo thing is a bit much..... perhaps NGS would be better?
Great content but...
I really tried to like Amy’s voice but it wasn’t working for me. Great content tho.
Love it but
Love this podcast but please stop saying “nat geo”. 🤮

Good job
I’ve been a fan since season 1 and I like this season with Amy a lot. She makes me even more excited to listen when the episodes come out. She is infectious!! I hope she has her own National Geographic podcast someday
Super interesting!
Wish they would come out with more, but very entertaining. The first episode is still my favorite.
Great stories!
Love the format and stories. Briggs has a great voice and style for the podcast. Keep me coming!!!
Super interesting!

Great podcast. New host is not.
I like thus podcast a lot. But the new host is not the best. The voice is too monotone and flat. She doesn’t sound at all interested in the subject. I miss Peter’s inflections. A female host is great, but maybe someone else. I’m listening to the beluga whales guests are much better at this.
Peter Gwin is a great host
Fun and interesting podcast. Peter Gwin is a great host (not so fond of Amy...sorry). Looking forward to additional seasons! Keep it coming. I love listening.
Love this
I love this podcast. I have listened to all of them and am now relistening to them all because my 8 year old discovered them and she is a big fan too. Can’t wait for more.

Investigative Journalism
If you’re looking for short, investigative journalism on all kinds of curiosities I highly recommend this podcast! Really enjoyed the first season.
Such a great look at different facets of NatGeo stories. Learn something new every time.

Luckily I happened onto National Geographic OVERHEAD podcasts while searching for interesting free podcasts during Covid restrictions. Loved this one, subscribed and look forward to more.
Have severe ADHD ... am on meds
The background music is so distracting that I have fast forwarded to "non music" sections. What does NG find is gained for having this distracting music. Am deleting... again ... obviously forgot about this "feature" because re downloaded from the wonderful magazine website (which I've subscribed to for years)... I know I cannot expect the world to adjust to my needs (also have LD issues) but... I think this review is a "waste of time from NG POV, but from mine, it gives me the opportunity to express my frustration.

Interesting account of the search for the southern most tree. But what species was it?

New host is awful
Who chooses that voice for a podcast? Grating on the ears. Got a voice for tv
Truly Some Of The Most Fun I’ve Had In All My Ears
I really love the concept of this show in general, as someone who is a bit of a renaissance man with adhd- loving to learn about anything and everything- this podcast scratched the itch I have to read more Nat Geo content but not having a ton of reading time- this podcast makes me remember the magazines piled in my bathroom and next to my bed and inspires me to want to pick them up and read them! I’m an artist and when I collage I use magazines and I can never bare to cut up the National Geographic’s because they are such a wonderful archive of human knowledge and I really appreciate all that the publication is doing- this podcast was a genius idea and extremely enjoyable! Love from here to there, Al

Good content with some bias
Love the main host! Season 3 has been a disappointment... (the girl host has a voice that’s hard to “relax” to) Overall an informative podcast
Great podcast.
Well produced and entertaining content. Hoping for more episodes.
More science and less politics
Very interesting science but has political leanings on climate and animal rights that may dissuade certain listeners.
Great podcast!
I’m greatly enjoying this podcast. It offers a wide variety of scientific and human interest topics that can appeal to a wide audience. The episodes are varied enough and short enough to capture my college students’ attention in the gen ed geoscience course I teach. I use many of them as assignment “starters.” I look forward to each episode. Keep them coming!
Please bring back Peter!!
This is one of the few podcasts that I can truly focus on and it’s not the same without Peter’s voice. Bring back Peter!
Science & Law save dinasour

Please don’t let Amy host
The podcast is great, but Amy’s voice is grating and difficult to listen to. Not good for a quiet podcast. Thanks!
My opinion
It’s a good podcast.
