March 16th marks the start of a new updated version of Carl Sagan’s classic TV series “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage”. The brilliant Neil deGrasse Tyson and the hilarious Seth MacFarlane will be on hosting/narrating duties, and it promises to be stimulating both visually, mentally, and I suspect, entertaining too.
To celebrate the occasion, and hopefully engage people in some beautiful, beautiful scientific discussion, I intend to record a companion Podcast episode an hour after the UK broadcast has ended. We would, as a group, talk through some of the points of interest from the current episode. I shall then slave away in order to have it available to download within 24-48 hours.
This is where you come in. Will you be watching Cosmos? Have you watched it in the US/Canada already? Do you have an interest in cosmology/physics? Do you think you could lend a lively voice to a relaxed discussion concerning the contents of the show? Read more
