This episode features an interview with Dr. Stella Kafka, current director of the AAVSO (American Association of Variable Star Observers). I met Dr. Kafka at the 2018 Symposium of the Astronomical Society of South Africa, where she delivered several excellent talks on the AAVSO and citizen science.

Brief bio of the podcaster: Allen is an amateur astronomer, an IT professional, a podcaster, a father of five beautiful kids and a barely competent chess player. He is also the director of the Citizen Science Section of the Astronomical Society of South Africa, where he promotes the uptake of Citizen Science among South African amateur astronomers.
