Next year marks the International Year of Astronomy, celebrating the 400th anniversary of Galileo turning his telescope to the sky and revolutionizing the way we think of the Universe, and our place in it. There are many things IYA is doing to celebrate, but one of my favorites is the 365 Days of Astronomy effort. Starting January 1, this site will feature one podcast about astronomy per day for the whole year. I'm excited for lots of reasons, not the least of which is the people involved: Pamela Gay, Fraser Cain, Michael Koppelman, and, why, I might even drop in a 'cast or two. And this means you too! We want people to contribute, including making your own podcast and submitting it. That's right; you can contribute your own voice to the choir in an international effort to teach people about the wonders of the sky. Don't just leave all the heavy lifting to us, folks: take a turn at it. Who knows? You might just like it, too. Join us.
