Occasionally I get to escape from the writing desk and take part in some video and podcast work, some of which are collected here. This section is regularly updated so please return soon!

 

A few weeks ago I spent a very enjoyable afternoon and evening in Cambridge.  I gave a lecture about my career in science journalism to the BlueSci society at University of Cambridge.  That afternoon, I recorded an interview with them for their radio show, including a discussion of life on other worlds and The Sky’s Dark Labyrinth. Here is the interview for downloading or streaming.



While I was in Canada launching The Sky’s Dark Labyrinth,  I dropped into my Canadian publisher’s offices, McArthur and Co,  to make some short videos for their blog.  This first one introduces the book, and watch out for more in the next few weeks or so, as I introduce the main characters of the novel.

You can see the original blog post here

You can see other videos of me talking about The Sky’s Dark Labyrinth here.

On Monday I fly to Toronto to promote McArthur's publication of The Sky's Dark Labyrinth in Canada. The Dunlap Institute and the University of Toronto are generously hosting me for the first half of the week. In addition to holding a colloquium and discussion groups within the university, I will be delivering a 7 o'clock public talk on Tuesday 18th evening in the Isabel Bader Theatre. Then on Wednesday 19th evening I will be in the Runnymede public library at 7 o'clock, talking, reading and signing.

 

At the weekend, McArthur are flying me to Montreal to take part in the Sunday morning 23rd Paragraphe Books and Brunch event at Le Centre Sheraton. Before that, on the Saturday 22nd evening, I have been invited by the Montreal branch of the Royal Astronomical Association Canada to deliver an 8 o'clock talk at the Morgan Arborteum Visitors' Centre.

 

Having flown me back to Toronto  McArthur are taking me to various literary parties and events as part of Toronto's International Festival of Authors.

 

Details of all my events can be found on my Talks page. I look forward to meeting lots of literary Canadians.

This is the last of my twelve podcasts for the excellent series of daily podcasts known as 365 Days of Astronomy. My contributions are adapted from selected chapters of my book Big Questions: Universe. The book has been on sale in the UK since July and will be published in the USA early in 2011.

If you would like a preview, head over to 365 Days of Astronomy and listen as I discuss Is There Cosmological Evidence for God?

This is the penultimate of my twelve podcasts for the excellent series of daily podcasts known as 365 Days of Astronomy. My contributions are adapted from selected chapters of my book Big Questions: Universe. The book has been on sale in the UK since July and will be published in the USA early in 2011.

If you would like a preview, head over to 365 Days of Astronomy and listen as I discuss ‘Are there Alternate Universes?

I will be the guest presenter on the Little Atoms radio show on Friday 1st October.  Together with regular producer/presenter Neil Denny, I will be meeting up with fellow Quercus author Michael Brooks.

 

Both of us have written books for The Big Questions series.  My title is The Universe and Michael Brooks’s is Physics. In addition, Michael has written 13 Things That Don’t Make Sense.

Hot on the heels of Newsnight, the lovely people at the Fred MacAulay show invited me on this morning to talk about solar storms and The Sun Kings.  This is the third time I’ve been a guest on the show and as always it was great fun.  However, I’m kicking myself for missing Fred’s joke about how wide flares are.

 

You can listen to the programme for a limited time on iPlayer here.  The solar storms piece starts at about 7 minutes.

 

Fred website is here and you can follow him on Twitter here. And don’t forget to follow me on Twitter too!

I attended part of the Electric Infrastructure Security Summit at the Houses of Parliament today.  As regular readers of mine will know, the threat to our technology from large solar storm is real, even if we do not know when the next big one is coming.

 

All this talk about a giant storm coming in 2013 is utter nonsense – no one can predict the timing and magnitude of individual solar storms.

This is the ninth of my twelve podcasts for the excellent series of daily podcasts known as 365 Days of Astronomy. My contributions are adapted from selected chapters of my recently published book: The Big Questions: The Universe. The book was published in the UK on 1 July and I am now hearing that it will be published in the US early next year.

 

If you’d like a preview of it, head over to 365 Days of Astronomy and listen as I discuss Is There Life on Mars? A new podcast from the book will be posted every month this year on or around the 17th of every month, so watch this website for those.

 

You can find links to my previous episodes below the fold.

 

It was a great pleasure to be interviewed tonight about The Big Questions: The Universe by Ben Emmett on The Astronomy Show on Dublin City FM.

 

As well as discussing the biggest questions in the Universe, we also talked about ESA’s Cluster mission and its ten fantastic years of discovery.

 

You can listen to the interview here.
