The Jodcast and the Chamber of Anti-science

You might have realised that I've been in Harry Potter mode for the past couple of weeks preparing for the fantastic Harry Potter Star Party. That has spilled over into the Jodcast and the July Extra show (released a tad late) has another Harry Potter-themed intro and outro. This time it includes the great Phil Plait as an auror who helps fight against the bad astronomy of Baron Deathmortes and his followers. I was amazingly thrilled when Phil actually agreed to record his lines for us as he is an "internet celebrity" and busy writing his next book.

The bulk of the show is given over to the study of white dwarfs and the search for planetary companions to them with Gemini and the VLT.
