This must be the year for science podcasts. Scientific American began publishing weekly podcasts of current news in science, and I've just learned that one of my old favorite radio programs is also available by podcast, Science Friday. The Science Friday podcasts are derived from the weekly science news hour and published as a single podcast of each topic discussed in that hour. I used to listen to Science Friday each week while working the lab, and I hope they consider publishing an archive of the most interesting interviews from way back. One of my favorites was an interview with Carl Sagan from 1996.

Science Friday
Science Friday is a weekly science talk show, broadcast live over public radio stations nationwide from 2-4pm Eastern time as part of NPR's 'Talk of the Nation' programming. Each week, we focus on science topics that are in the news and try to bring an educated, balanced discussion to bear on the scientific issues at hand. Panels of expert guests join Science Friday's host, Ira Flatow, a veteran science journalist, to discuss science - and to take questions from listeners during the call-in portion of the program.
