Irregular Climate Episode 9

This week: Some good news, and some sad news, IOP oh no!, it’s not about saving the planet, the skeptic debunk of the week and Ken Cuccinelli doesn’t know when to quit

  1. Thanks, Dan, for your weekly Podcasts! I especially liked Carl Sagan’s “Pale Blue Dot” piece in this episode and I think that we’d have a lot less mindless discussions or arguments if everybody had to listen to this and to really digest what it means (small hope, I know!).

    Out of curiosity: do you have any indication of how often your podcasts are listened to and/or downloaded? It might be worthwhile information to post on the blog to see how numbers evolve from week to week…..

    Cheers from Germany

    • Here is another More Sagan, on that precious blue dot


      I did try to shorten the Sagan clip in the podcast, but found nothing I wanted to cut. He was a master of science communication. Absolutely brilliant.

      As for how many people have been listening to the podcast, I get about 1000 downloads per week. It’s more than I thought it would be, but now I have set the bar higher:)


  2. I agree – the excerpt from Cosmos was great. And you spoke well of the topic. Don’t sweat falling behind on show notes. Just posting a few links with minimal overview or description is sufficient.
