This is one of my favorite podcasts. If you visit the site, you’ll find a whole range of differents casts and RSS feeds for various science and engineering disaplines. These podcasts are actually live radio shows played on BBC Radio. They seem to be posted as podcasts a week or two after airing.
I sent them a question and they invited me on-air live to ask it. They phoned me from the UK this Sunday about 1pm est.. I listened to the show live on the phone for about 10 minutes until my spot came up. My question can be heard on the Christmas 2012 episode of The Naked Scientists.
What was the question? Having seen images of galaxy’s taken though telescopes, they all seem to have a bright center that is a significant portion of the galaxy. Do some planets in the bright center bathe in perpetual light independent of that planets own sun rise/set cycle?
The answer? You’ll just have to listen as I did. 😉
One of my favorite podcasts is “The Naked Scientists” produced in the UK. The July 22, 2012 podcast just released is entirely about the history of aviation. Charlie Taylor built the early Wright engines including the first one to fly in 1903. He is honored as the worlds first Aviation Mechanic. Much of the podcast covers the development of engines for flight. Lots of cool information on jet engines. Early in the podcast a surpise; a short clip of Charles Tayor speaking.
Check out “The Crash Cast”, a fun and informative RC podcast from the big ol’ state of Texas. I met Micheal “Crash” Hancock at 2011 SEFF. He’s a real RC junkie. His show shares a lot of good information. He is a scratch builder, home CNC expert and has a fondness for Multi Rotor aircraft. His complete support site for show topics can be found at: All Things Crash.
