Things to listen to: Junior & Podclast Episode 2

Feels like deja vu from two weeks ago :)
I still have manuscript revisions to do (different MS than last time though - more good news on this in the near future hopefully!), and I know I could use some relaxation. I have a busy month coming up! So, without further ado....

I just wanted to remind everyone that John's radio show "Switching Gears w/ Junior" is on tonight (Wednesday, April 30) from 9-12pm Mountain time. It is not available as a podcast unfortunately, so you have to listen to it live. It is a nice way to tune out the world and just relax. I know I have some manuscript revisions I plan on working on tonight while I listen! You can check it out tonight (streaming radio) on the stations website at http://kafmradio.org/

If you are on Facebook, you can join the Switching Gears w/ Junior group! See you there!

Episode 2 of the PodClast is now available! [mp3] [iTunes]

What is a PodClast? Basically is is several folks from the geoblogosphere who are getting together to talk about recent geology stories in the news. In the first episode, which took place on April 13, Chris Town (from the blog "goodSchist") and Ron Schott (from the blog "Ron Schott’s Geology Home Companion") got together to talk about "recent volcanic activity on Kilauea, Hawaii.... the pros and cons of peer-reviewed papers and ... career opportunities for people entering the professional geology world." (see more and download the Mp3 here)

In episode 2 Chris and Ron are joined by Dave Schumaker from Geology News. They discussed plagiarism, earth day, gas prices, alternate energy, oil shales, and Where on Google Earth. Check it out!!

The next PodClast will be recorded on May 3 so be sure to keep an eye out for that!
