you are aware of the `digg effect` ?

Would this be a reverse Digg effect, where we send traffic to them and try to take them off the Internet.

This is actually more permanent. This isn't a one-time story, it's Astronomy Cast's permanent position in their podcast directory. So I want to ensure we get high up the list and stay there. :-)

I have digg'd the podcast, Fraser. I'd do anything else you ask to promote the podcasts, too. I think the work you and Pamela are doing is fantastic, and I am an avid listener. So much so, I am checking your site even more than I was previously, to make sure I get the latest podcast as and when it comes out.

I particularly enjoyed the recent episode 16 "Across the Electromagnetic Spectrum" and have so far listened to it 3 times. I have had lots of questions about light and this has answered a lot of them in a way that allows me to move on to new questions. ;)

I'll be writing to you and Pamela again shortly to express my feelings about the podcasts further. But suffice to say, I think they are truly fantastic and a great educational tool.

Thanks so much,

I have referred the Astronomy Cast to local science teachers, suggesting extra credit for listening, and I encourage everyone to do the same. The quality and content are excellent. This is a very talented team.
