Their discussions cover a broad spectrum of topics within astronomy and space science, combining personal experiences with professional insights to explore the wonders of the universe.

The podcast frequently features a segment called "Name That Space Sound," where hosts play intriguing space sounds and attempt to identify their sources, offering a playful yet educational approach to engaging with the auditory aspects of space exploration. These segments reflect the podcast's light-hearted and accessible style, even as it tackles complex scientific phenomena.

In addition to the recurring sound segment, the hosts delve into substantial astronomical events and concepts.

The show also features special guests, including astrophysicists and advocates for women in STEM, providing expert voices to deepen the exploration of these themes.

The podcast doesn't shy away from more philosophical or speculative questions inherent in space science. Discussions range from the potential for future space travel and colonization to the moral and ethical considerations of astronomers and their equipment on Earth. The journey of human space exploration is another central theme, with episodes recounting milestones such as the Apollo moon landing through a combination of narrative storytelling and scientific explanation.

Overall, Cosmic Vertigo presents a blend of scientific inquiry, cultural storytelling, and personal narrative. It aims to make the vast, often incomprehensible scale of space more relatable and comprehensible to its listeners, all the while fostering a sense of wonder and curiosity about the cosmos.
