Living Space

It may not be the done thing for astronomy podcasters to promote other podcasts, but I see it as my public service remit to do so (if only I had the benefit of a license fee). Anyway, there is a new weekly astronomy podcast on the block called LivingSpace which should not be confused with California-based indie band of the same name (managed by Dark Matter Productions). All name disputes aside, the podcast is brought to you by Harriet Scott (who presents the breakfast show on London's HeartFM) and Chris Lintott who will be familiar to those who've seen the Sky At Night. The first episode was released a few hours ago.

It is very much in the style of a 'proper' radio programme and presumably benefits from the studios at HeartFM or the BBC. It is quick-paced and packed with a variety of stuff and wouldn't be too out of place on a radio station. It even comes in at just under 30 minutes long, so if it isn't already being used on a radio station I expect that Harriet and Chris might be looking to that for the future. It is a good half hour show and my only complaint (apart from the feed giving me trouble with the AMP) is that I must be getting old (or a bit deaf) because the background music was slightly distracting at times. Anyway, check it out.
