I'm Back
Yes, I have been off the airwaves for awhile, but I haven't been lazy! I've been working on my channel and promotion, as well as joining forums etc, doing a tonne of reading and meeting some actual honest to gosh astrobiologists! It's been a lot of fun, but I intend to get back into these podcasts. So, I'll talk to you soon!

AstroBiological: The Beauty of astrobiology, and a Chat with Fedor Steeman
Hi all. It's been a while, I admit. I haven't been lazy, there's just been some personal stuff going on. I chat about progress in my facebook group, looking for astrobiologists to bug and include a long chat with my good friend Fedor Steeman of the GREAT youtube channel Phrenomythic. I highly recommend his alien analysis series. Music: Audio from the chat is used with the permission of Fedor Steeman. Find me on Facebook: Find Phrenomythic: Explore AstroBiological!

AstroBiological: Metal Madness, Visiting 16 Psyche
NOTE: This podcast was up yesterday, however I took it down on noticing that a section of audio had mysteriously disappeared. Here is a new iteration of the same show some of you may have already listened too, with a bit of extra chatter! Today, we talk metal: lots of it, visiting the future once again and exploring the incredible metal asteroid 16 Psyche from the perspective of a bored security guard. I couldn't imagine anything I'd rather do than walk on the exposed core of a long dead protoplanet! Music: Find me on Youtube: Find me on Facebook: Find me on Twitter:

Life didn't start out complex. I give an overview of Ribozymes, some tricky little bits of RNA that may be the grand parents of everything. Really!
