podClast #6 is up!

June 27, 2008

In case you missed it … the sixth edition of the podClast is up and ready for your listening pleasure. The podClast is an informal discussion among geobloggers about geoscience-related topics that are making headlines (sometimes in the mainstream press and sometimes just in geo-nerd circles). Here is the rundown of this week … taken from the show notes page:

This week’s show discusses opening up the untapped oil reserves of the U.S.A, the June 14th Japanese earthquake and the early warning system, and the recent flooding in the mid-west of the U.S.

Participants

Chris – goodSchist

Brian – Clastic Detritus

Jess (Tuff Cookie) – Magma Cum Laude

I had some connectivity issues with Skype during this … but you wouldn’t know it by listening to it. Chris did a masterful job at editing.

Give it a listen.

Speaking of science podcasts, this week’s Nature podcast is unusually rich in geoscience topics. They discuss (1) ideas about how the crustal dichotomy on Mars may be a result of a large impact, (2) more about the effects of impacts within the context of the 100 year anniversary of the Tunguska event, and (3) explosive volcanism in the deep sea. You can see the transcript and get the audio here.
