Omega Tau - bilingual science podcast

Here is a new and very interesting find in the realm of science podcasts: Omega Tau Podcast. There have been eighteen episodes to date and it looks very promising. On subjects of science and technology the podcast presents interviews with specialists in the chosen fields.

I very much enjoyed the last two episode. One about robotics and the last about Astrobiology. It is always good to hear the specialists talk, but let them be guided in an interview to make connection with the wider public and the listening easier. In addition, what is special about this podcast is that it is bilingual. Half of the episodes are in English, the other half in German. The production is in German hands, but depending upon the guest - apparently - the interview is conducted in English.

It is possible to subscribe to the entire podcast: Omega Tau podcast feed, but also to connect to feeds in either of the languages: Omega Tau in English and Omega Tau in German. Needless to say, when you subscribe to either of these, you get the episodes in that language only and the numbering will not be continuous.
