A New Month, A New Podcast

Well, I’m back from LPSC and have jumped straight from one kind of busy to a new kind of crazy.

As some of you may know, Nick Rattenbury is leaving the Jodcast and the rest of the team (including the original Astronomy Blog author Stuart Lowe) are stupidly busy, soooooo Fraser Cain and I decided to help them out and adopt their show to make sure it keeps going.

The first episode of the new Jodcast, under the new branding of Astronomy Cast, is now available. Check it out on the Jodcast Website.

    Ha, I’m a regular listener of the Jodcast. It took me just a second… and then I had a good laugh.
