Great New Science Podcast by Dr. Carrie Nugent
Spacepod is a new weekly outreach podcast produced and hosted by Dr. Carrie Nugent, a staff scientist at Caltech’s Infrared Processing and Analysis Center. Episodes are a short (~15 min), relaxed conversation with a space explorer about our universe. Intended for the general public, the goal is to harness the informal, intimate medium of podcasting to communicate not only neat science, but the interesting and diverse personalities that make up our field. Several episodes (including upcoming episodes) feature women profiled on this blog.
Since launch in August, Spacepod has been steadily gaining listeners. The most popular episode has received more than 900 downloads, and Spacepod has been featured in iTunes’ “New and Noteworthy” category. A reviewer says, “This podcast is like having a drink with a really smart friend.”
