RADIO Frontier Channel Episode 08

“The Astronomical Council of Doom” – A few weeks ago I participated in the “Astronomical Council of Doom” podcast, created by the funny and brilliant folks over at Slacker Astronomy. A few of us astronomy geeks discussed the future direction of the space program, media coverage of astronomy topics, and our favorite science fiction movies and television shows. All the podcasts – Singularity, Skepticality, The Universe Today, Slacker Astronomy, and RADIO Frontier Channel – took the resulting discussion and edited it for their own show. Here is my version, Episode 08 of RADIO Frontier Channel.
