The USGS (US Geological Survey) puts out podcasts called CoreFacts that cover a variety of unique scientific topics (most related to earth and atmospheric science).  Fun stuff- recent topics include snow color, jewelry, water flows, volcanos, earthquakes, etc.  You can also submit questions for the podcasts (sort of a subdued TNS).

No, it's not about her - you're obsessed with that woman only old enough to be your granddaughter.

This is Dave Hebert from the USGS Podcast Team—thanks for mentioning CoreFacts (especially on a site who's owners reside so high on the iTunes science podcast popularity list [;)] ).

We also have more in-depth interviews and narratives on natural science topics in our other podcast series, CoreCast. See both series at usgs.gov/podcasts.

And if you have any ideas or questions, please send them to corecast@usgs.gov. Thanks!
