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, volcanoes, earthquakes, etc.  You can also submit questions for the podcasts (sort of a subdued TNS).

THIS IS ONLY FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN THE SUBJECTS POSTED.

THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT!

Here's the lineup for CoreCast (usgs.gov/corecast) for week ending April 25, 2008:

Ep. 41: Earthquake in the Midwest

This is a very interesting podcast as it addresses the largest earthquake ever recorded in the US - in 1807, I believe.

Will the USGS podcasts be including an advertisement for the Naked Scientists in their audio and online media, similar to that being posted here?
