From our station partners:

"Our listeners really enjoy and appreciate this Broadcast and it adds to our educational outreach from this small LP FM station. Thank you and all the staff for what you do." - David Bernard, Business Manager,  WSWO-LP, Oldies97.3 and Daytonoldies.org

"I’ve been using them for months now...these are such informative, interesting short features, and I really do want to keep them on our schedule!" - Lottie Squires, WCKB 780, Dunn, NC

"I applaud the work you and your colleagues are doing.  Radio needs more programs such as yours, programs that make one wonder about God’s incredible creation that we all take for granted." Rod Fazzari, KHSS-FM, Walla Walla, WA

From our listeners:

"Just wanted to let you know that you have helped HUGELY with our homeschooling [during the pandemic]. Our kids are thankfully pretty self-directed, but having EarthDate to point them to has been amazing. [Our son] is tearing through the episodes, and we are having some pretty interesting dinner and hike conversations. You have a big 9-year-old fan! Anyway, what a fantastic podcast series!" Parent of a 9-year-old-fan
