Every few months, I join host Laura Knoy with fellow New Hampshire astronomers Mal Cameron and John Gianforte to discuss all the astronomical happenings that folks want to hear about. The call-in show airs live on New Hampshire Public Radio and online at 9am ET Monday – Friday. Check here for the announcement of our next show. Past Sky Crew episodes include:

I got to talk about DIY radio astronomy projects in relation to the Perseid meteor shower on the August 8, 2014, episode of Science Friday. Listen to the archive or read the accompanying post about it.


Learning Space

For several years, I co-hosted Learning Space, a weekly Hangout on Air about topics in astronomy education, outreach, and other ways to share science. It includes interviews, hands-on demonstrations, lists of our favorite resources and more.
