Episodes often feature discussions on the significance of data from major space missions and telescopes including the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), TESS, and Gaia. The hosts elaborate on the technological aspects and scientific insights provided by these instruments, making complex topics accessible to their audience.

Interviews with prominent scientists and experts in the field are a recurring element of the podcast. Guests share insights on the latest research, novel discoveries, and the tools and methodologies they employ. These conversations often include detailed explanations of their contributions to the understanding of exoplanetary atmospheres, compositions, and potential habitability.

The podcast also tackles broader astronomical questions, such as the formation of planets and their potential for harboring life. Episodes confront debated topics within the scientific community, offer reviews of recent exoplanet papers, and present news updates concerning the latest progress and challenges in the field. This mix provides a comprehensive overview of current exoplanetary research.

Additionally, the podcast hosts segments that discuss scientific conferences, explore the habitability of celestial bodies, and bring in educational content about prominent planets both within and beyond our solar system. The Exocast team adds an engaging element by adopting and discussing specific exoplanets, emphasizing their personal and professional connections to these planets.
