Take a fact-based journey through the cosmos. Tune in to hear weekly discussions on astronomical topics ranging from planets to cosmology. Hosted by Fraser Cain (Universe Today) and Dr. Pamela L. Gay (SIUE), this show brings the questions of an avid astronomy lover direct to an astronomer. Together Fraser and Pamela explore what is known and being discovered about the universe around us. Astronomy Cast is supported through individual donations and the sponsorship of Swinburne Astronomy Online.
 
Join us each week as we discuss all things software development. Frequently joined by a far more intelligent guest on the show's topic, we by no means know everything, but love what we do. Topics range from daily developer life, PHP, frameworks, testing, good software design and our experiences using many other programming languages.
