Every year at this time the People's Choice Podcast Awards are held. This year, three different podcasts with which I am involved in some way are nominated in the Science category!
Big Picture Science (what used to be Are We Alone) is the SETI podcast/radio show where I do the (roughly) monthly Brains on Vacation segment with astronomer Seth Shostak. My friends Fraser Cain and Pamela Gay do the Astronomy Cast podcast (I've been on it a few times). And the Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast, where I'm a frequent guest and general rabble-rouser, is also nominated.
I like all three, so I have no problem if my readers vote for any of these. You can vote every day, once per day, until October 27. Voting resets at midnight Eastern US time.
