Just wanted to wish all the Universe Today readers a happy 2009, and invite all of you to listen to the first episode of the 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast. The first voice you’ll hear will be … me! (well, after Pamela Gay’s introduction and George Hrab’s incredibly rockin’ theme song!) I’m part of the group of folks working behind the scenes, “making sure audio makes it from our community to your computer everyday of 2009” — to quote Pamela’s part of the podcast. The 365 Days of Astronomy podcast will publish one podcast per day, for all 365 days of 2009. The podcast episodes are written, recorded and produced by people around the world. There are still dates open if you’d like to participate. Check out the website! If you’ve never done a podcast before, don’t worry — everything you need to know on how to get started is on the website. But if you choose to participate by just listening, that’s OK, because we need listeners, too! If you need a reminder to listen every day of 2009, you can follow the podcast’s Twitter, which will send out a tweet each day of the day’s topic, inviting you to listen in. And make sure you check out all the other International Year of Astronomy events, too. If you can’t find any near you, consider organizing an event, whether it be a star party or an informational event. The sky is the limit!

    You like to cut out people who are hard of hearing.
    Why don’t you post the text also?

  3. Dan — All of the podcasts will have transcripts, so that they are accessible to anyone. Take a look at the 365 Days of Astronomy website, and you’ll see the transcripts are there! Enjoy! http://365daysofastronomy.org

    If there’s a link that allows me to download the sound file & listen on my MP3 player, I missed it.

    Please add such a link or make it clear where it is for each podcast.

  5. Jim-

    I’ve added the links to subcribe via iTunes or RSS in the article above. Or, the links are right on the left hand side of the 365 Days of Astronomy podcast website: http://365daysofastronomy.org/
