"Starts With A Bang" is a podcast dedicated to exploring a wide array of astrophysical and cosmological topics. The episodes delve deeply into both the familiar aspects of our Universe and the cutting-edge scientific phenomena that challenge conventional understanding.

The podcast frequently addresses major themes like dark matter, dark energy, and the overarching model of cosmology known as the ΛCDM model. It discusses how these elements govern the structure and behavior of the Universe on both large scales, such as galaxies and galaxy clusters, and smaller, more nuanced scales, where modified physics theories like MOND are considered.

A significant portion of the content revolves around the objects populating the cosmos, including stars, planets, exoplanets, and the enigmatic black holes. Episodes investigate the profound impact these celestial bodies have on their environments, such as the role of supermassive black holes in galaxy formation and activity, as well as the peculiarities of neutron stars, pulsars, and ultracool dwarfs.

The podcast also keeps pace with the latest advancements in observational astronomy, often highlighting notable missions and technologies like the Gaia mission, TESS, JWST, SOFIA, and ALMA. These episodes provide insights into how modern instruments and astronomical surveys enable new discoveries and deepen our understanding of existing phenomena.

Additionally, the podcast explores highly specialized astronomical phenomena and theoretical physics, including gravitational waves, quantum computing, and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. It further examines the intersections between observational data and theoretical models, demonstrating the complexities and challenges of current astronomical research.

Each episode features a guest expert, ensuring a diverse range of perspectives and expertise. These conversations are deeply informative, offering listeners the opportunity to grasp the intricacies of the Universe through the lens of both established knowledge and emerging scientific frontiers.
