The first Beagle Project podcast...

is an interview with Dr. Karen James, the BP's director of science. It goes all the way from low earth orbit to the classroom. So whether you want to know what a 170 year old ship has to do with science, why we'll be talking to the International Space Station and why a biology student in a classroom on a Tuesday afternoon should get excited about us, listen in.



It was recorded in the garden of BP director David Lort-Phillips on a lovely spring evening, and you can hear the local birds enthusiastically getting in on the act.

We're going to make podcasts a regular feature of the Beagle Project, so if you've got any ideas for podcasts, any comments, if you want to take part drop us a comment or email. OK. To establish a podcast feed, do we need the podcasts on a discrete blog? I've established a feedburner feed here, but don't want people getting fed whole blogposts when they're just looking for audio. Suggestions/solutions welcome until we go mad and establish The Beagle Channel.

Neato. Will give it a listen asap. Is there a feed for the audio so we can subscribe?

Hi Peter,

For some top tips on hosting/uploading podcasts, I would suggest contacting the likes of Deepak Singh mndoci@mndoci.com and/or Mike Sefang mike.seyfang@gmail.com

Great show, chaps. Hoping it will be the first of many.

Peter Mc said...

Yup, aiming for a regular podcast. One a week, maybe more if interesting people and ideas come along.

I know how to solve your feed problem. Will email you.

Thanks McDawg. I went to Deepak's site and ran away, the man is so clever. I may creep back, heavily disguised later on.
