    Is there a way to just get the audio for us, bandwidth challenged folks ?

  2. Erica Mena says

    Are these still going into the Astronomy Cast feed, or should I be getting them from 365 Days of Astronomy exclusively? Thanks!

  3. Is there methods to only receive the audio tracks for people, bandwidth questioned individuals?


  4. Richard Drumm says

    Erica & Issac: I’m the editor of the 365 Days of Astronomy podcast. The Friday 365 DoA podcast publishes at 6AM Eastern Time, so it happens a bit before the G+ WSH (Weekly Space Hangout) does. The Astronomy Cast episodes also are happening as G+ hangouts these days, so I edit them (as does Preston Gibson) and upload them as 365 DoA episodes. So to answer your questions, Astronomy Casts go to both Astronomy Cast and 365 DoA, WSHs are available live on G+ Hangouts & YouTube, archived on YouTube, and (audio only, which saves bandwidth) on 365 DOA.
