I have only just stumbled upon the AstronomyCast pod casts and have been enjoying them on my holidays. I have tried to download all the eps to listen to but am missing Eps 54 and 84. Does anyone have them, or can a moderator upload/fix the broken links to the originals?

Best regards

Hi Andrew and welcome.
I was in the same boat as you not too long ago and devoured every episode I could get my hands on (have listened to several 2 or 3 times now).
I found the easiest way is to subscribe through i-Tunes (there are also plenty of really good astronomy and physics podcasts listed there among lots of other categories).
Alternatively, have you tried the Astronomycast (http://www.astronomycast.com/) website? you should be able to download backissues from there as well as check out the show notes.

I have subscribed through iTunes. The iTunes and the Astronomy Cast web page both report that Eps 54 and 84 are missing.

Hi Andrew, if you are talking about no. 54 "Question Show no. 6" of Sep 17, 2007; and no. 84, "Getting around the Solar System", of April 14, 2008, I have both episodes on my HDD for offline listening. The MP3 files are 19 and 18 MB, respectively.

I can send them to you if you tell me where to send them.

However, I would ask a moderator or administrator if that is OK. As far I can see, there shouldn't be a licensing problem, but I wouldn't commit a copyright infraction against Fraser and Pamela, much less on Fraser's own site :).

I'll PM the management for approval or disapproval.

There's no problem distributing missing episodes. I'll try to figure out the problem with the site and the feed.

Ah, lovely! Thanks a lot for your time, Fraser.

Andrew, PM me for a file host or your eMail-Adress. I am on ADSL, so file size is not much of a problem for me.

If you would be so kind, I need them as well

I have pm'd you my email

Sorry, I tried to send them, but apparently, your eMail provider refused to accept the large files.

Whenever you provide me with something that can gulp 19 MB, we're good to go :-)
