New Podcast – Astronomy Cast

In case there’s any room left on your podcast schedule, I wanted to let you know about a new project I’ve been working on with Dr. Pamela Gay from Slacker Astronomy. We’ve started a new podcast called Astronomy Cast. Every week, Pamela and I will chat about a specific topic in astronomy to try and give the listeners a deeper understanding of the topic. Over the coming weeks, we’ll talk about dark matter, dark energy, extrasolar planet detection, etc. Less news, and more background and explainer.

We’ve got a new website just for this podcast. You can access it at If you want, you can subscribe to the podcast in your podcatcher software (such as iTunes) at

Our first episode is already live on the server. It’s called Pluto’s Planetary Identity Crisis. You can listen to the first episode direct, just click here. I’ll be posting them on Universe Today as well. 🙂

If you have any ideas questions or comments, please drop me an email at
