365 Days of Astronomy is a podcast series that was started in 2009 for the International Year of Astronomy. It continued through 2010, and will continue into 2011 as well. It's a contributor podcast; there are monetary contributors who sponsor podcasts and help keep it going, but also the podcasts themselves are contributed by all and sundry. Nancy Atkinson is the editor, and the long-suffering one who deals with people who never get their podcasts in on time.
I've done a number of these, including today's. Here are the links to the summaries and podcasts that I've done in this series:
