Does anyone else watch/listen to any YouTube/podcasts that are "space" related? 🤔

Thought I'd share what I watch/listen to. If anyone has any suggestions for me they'd be most welcome! 😁 Always up for new stuff!

I would be out looking up tonight but Storm Arwen has put paid to that! 😩 Thanks a lot British weather! Ugh.....😭

So let's start with YouTube:

Fraser Cain. 

This guy is a great space communicator. He has a website magazine called Universe Today which is jam packed full of space related news. He also has an email newsletter he sends out every week which has a HUGE amount of interesting articles..... for free! Can highly recommend! He also answers your questions via YouTube or email. My top recommendation! 👍 He also does Weekly Space Hangout and Astronomy Cast. 

I won't go into detail with the others or this will be a very very very long post.....😳😆😂 Have a look and see what you think!

Anton Petrov

Astro Backyard

Late Night Astronomy

Launch pad Astronomy

Paul.M.Sutter (aka Ask a Spaceman)

PBS Spacetime

Small Optics

Very Interesting Channel...(this is the actual channel name) 😂

Now for Podcasts.....

Ask a Spaceman

Astronomy Cast

Dark Sky Conversations

Houston, we have a podcast!

Planetary Radio: Space exploration, Astronomy and Science 

Radio Astronomy (Sky at Night Magazine)

Space Junk

Space Nuts

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary

StarTalk Radio (Neil deGrasse Tyson)

Universe Today

Weekly Space Hangout

I hope some of you find these interesting. I usually listen to podcasts whilst walking my dog or riding my motorbike! 🐾🐾🏍️

Let me know what you watch/listen to that's space related. ☺️

Thanks,

Claire.

Small Optics is great for beginners I think. Jason has an easy way about him, and he leaves all the outtakes in. Very funny at times as well as informative.

Astro La Vista, Astrobiscuit and Jenham's Astro are also good UK ones.

Martin Pyott is also very passionate about Astronomy. Some of his videos really go into detail about using kit.

 

AstroFarsography is also well worth a look if Imaging is your thing.

Surprised that nobody's mentioned Dr Becky. She usually has a new video every Thursday and does a monthly "what's in the sky" vid.

Then there's Sabine Hossenfelder who does general science. She had a multi part series on quantum mechanics, went into Hermitian operators and Dirak Braket notation.

Also look for The Everyday Astronaut and The Angry Astronaut, though the latter might not be to everyone's taste.

Hi CC!

Great topic, thanks for sharing your choices. I'm always on the look out for new stuff to watch in that precious bit of 'me time' late evening!

One YouTuber I have subscribed to, as a newbie, is a chap called Astrobiscuit. He is funny and informative, helped me learn a bit and understand more about telescopes and what can be achieved on a budget!

The production of his videos are excellent and as good as some of the stuff on TV.

Cheers,

T

Thank you - some interesting things to check out here on those all too frequent cloudy nights! 

I heartily commend the Actual Astronomy podcast to you -   https://actualastronomy.com/

Chris and Shane are two chilled-out Canadian amateur astronomers who banter about practical observing topics mostly with smaller aperture instruments. Two episodes a week and a couple of monthly "objects to observe this month guides. Although they are based right in the middle of Canada their latitude at around 50 degrees makes all the timings and observing topics relevant to the UK & Northerm Europe. 

Some gear chat, occasional guests, listener observations and questions - always entertaining and has been, along with SGL of course, one of the best resources for me in my first year of "proper" observing including providing some morale-boosting virtual company on a couple of lone darker-site adventures!

Yep, this is my favourite podcast, along with Awesome Astronomy.

Gotta love Dr. Becky.  😉

You might want to check out Jason Kendall's videos if you want to get a little deeper into the science.  He's done several "chapters" of a non-mathematical, survey level astronomy course.

The fabulous Dr. H (Sabine) can be a bit arrogant at times IMO, but she gets the info across quite well.
