December Jodcast

It took its time but the December Jodcast (MP3: 23.5 MB) is finally out. This month, with it being almost the end of the year, we got a little silly and have our take on the Wizard of Oz for the intro/outro. Rather than a wizard we had the Great and Powerful Pod and he comes from New Zealand rather than Oz (groan). Somehow, we also managed to involve HAL and Dave in the outro again. In terms of astronomy, there is an interview with Cormac Purcell about masers (the microwave version of lasers) which can be used to discover things about stellar evolution, Tim talks about the Moon illusion and Ian M. (the northern one rather than the southern Ian M.!) tells us what we can see in the northern night sky during December.

In other podcast news, the Chandra Observatory has a video podcast about what clusters of galaxies can tell us (MP3: 24.0 MB), the December 2006 Astronomy a Go-Go (MP3: 22.3 MB) is online and so is Slackerpedia Galactica 4.0: The Astronomer Who Cried Wolf [FF] (MP3: 30.1 MB).
