Episode 200, June 23, 2014 Hosts: Paul, Shah, Lianne, Julie, Ryan, Harrison, Ted, Jesse Title: The 200th Episode: Just getting warmed up!
York Universe began in 2009 with the International Year of Astronomy (called ‘Live from York University’ at the time). Over the last 5 years, we’ve grown from a couple hosts and a twinkle in our eye to a full team of motivated individuals, captained by our resident Australian (and Dundee lookalike) Paul Delaney. Now celebrating our 200th episode, we look back over the history, and talk about the future. In this episode we also feature 2 panel discussions: The Human Exploration of Mars and Life in the Universe. We’ve had a great time with every episode, and look forward to the next ones. Thanks for listening everyone, podcast and show notes below.

Hosts: Paul, Jesse, Lianne Title: The Sequester Walks The Planck
A little extra time on the show tonight allowed us to pontificate on the political strife in the United States. The sequestration has caused a massive amount of public funding cuts, including NASA public outreach and education. Of course the Planck Telescope delivers its news that Universe is slightly older than we once thought. Paul, ‘the dean,’ gripes over his failing Aussie cricket team (but mostly off-air). Astronomy Night in Canada starts with York Universe, thanks for listening! See our show notes and podcast below.
Tonight’s hosts are Jesse, Lianne and Ryan! We’ll be chatting about Planck’s new data release, Europa’s salty ocean, water detected on an Exoplanet, and much more! Tune in at 9pm EDT (1am UT) using the link on the home page, or as always at Astronomy.FM!
