By actual practitioners

Been listening to this one for over a decade. Lets you see what people are researching before a press release has gone out.

Pantomime was hilarious

I just finished listening to the December 2018 Pantomime, and it was, to use a good British term (I'm Texan), brilliant. Just goes to show PHD candidates and post-docs have way too much time on their hands. I didn't recognize all the voices, but with the size of the cast, you must have called in most of the jodcasters from the last five years, and a few under-grounds to boot. I'm very familiar with the original story, and am very impressed with how y'all jod-ized it so well.

I've listened to every episode for going on ten years, and the Jodcast is without a doubt one of the best astronomy podcasts I've found. I struggle with the accents sometimes (you know us Americans), but the content is almost always very interesting. Keep up the great work.

My favorite astronomy podcast

I love that it's no dumbed-down content for the masses. The nerdier the better!
