Grad Student Podcast Featured on iTunes New & Noteworthy

Oct 03, 2013

Apple's iTunes music store is highlighting UW-Astro grad student Blakesley Burkhart's podcast 5 Minute Astronomy in its "New & Noteworthy" section as one out of 20 new and exciting podcasts in the Science & Medicine category. The podcast launched just three weeks ago and is based on the WORT program "Radio Astronomy", produced by Blakesley in collaboration with UW grad students Arthur Eigenbrot and Jenna Ryon.

"iTunes and podcasting is a new media outlet for science communication that has the potential to reach a large international audience", says Burkhart. "I'm very happy for the success of this new podcast because it means that our department can be showcased  to the public on a global level."
