Q & BA now on iTunes!

OK, so I'm new to all this high-falutin' tech stuff, but I'm working on it.

Phil Plait writes Slate’s Bad Astronomy blog and is an astronomer, public speaker, science evangelizer, and author of Death From the Skies!  

As far as I can tell, "Q & BA" is now up on iTunes! Sortof. If I search on "astronomy" it's in the list of podcasts (#39 at the moment, FWIW). Cool. Ditto for "bad astronomy" (though ironically it's #3 out of 5; those darn Slackers beat me at my own game for interviewing me). But when I go to the "Science and Medicine" category -- where I should be listed -- nada. Zippo. I'm not sure why, but iTunes confuses and frightens me. I'm willing to listen to advice.


Anyway, if you dare, you can simply drop the RSS URL (http://badastronomy.libsyn.com/rss) into the Advanced --> Subscribe to Podcast option and get it that way.

I'm toying with switching from LibSyn to blip.tv after a commenter mentioned it... or maybe doing both. Comments? Suggestions? I'm new to this, and my ultimate desire is to be king of all media (once I bump off Howard Stern) or at least the Online Astronomy Guru.

One more thing: I know you can't force viral stuff, but if you like what you see here, please Digg it! There's a link at the bottom of every post to help you. Digg.com is very cool, and I check it all the time to see what's hot in the cyberrealms of science. Join up, (it's free, yadda yadda) and you can digg my posts and get me that one crucial step closer to being lord of all I survey.

Oh yeah-- send more questions! There's a lot of astronomy out there. Surely you must wanna know more about it!
