Programmer Bee ,

Fraser and team make Canada proud!

If you want to stay up to date with space and astronomy news and are sick of sensationalist mainstream media coverage/garbage (let’s be honest), this podcast is for you!

Fraser Cain covers the latest news from space agencies from around the world and interviews the actual scientists who do the work. And it’s clear Fraser himself puts in a lot of hard work into making the show, I’m even inclined to say he’s a workaholic or just addicted to space news I guess, which is understandable. ;)
