While looking at the Hubble site a few days ago I noticed that the folks at ESA have started a new video podcast named Hubblecast. The first episode is presented by an astronomer at the European Southern Observatory - Dr Joe Liske - who has particular interest in cosmology, galaxy evolution and quasars. The first episode talks about recently released HST images of a galaxy being ripped apart by a cluster of galaxies.

Dr J (as the HST site is calling him) even has a MySpace page, although I'm very disappointed to see that he hasn't removed the "Zodiac sign" field from his profile. Two other astronomers - Dr Luca Cortese and Dr Jean-Paul Kneib - will be involved with future episodes.

I've added Hubblecast to the Astronomy Media Player.
