Join me, Senior Editor EmilyLakdawalla, Planetary Radio host Mat Kaplan, and special guest Dr. Meg Schwamb of Yale University to talk about the latest news from the American Astronomical Society's 2013 meeting in Long Beach, California. Dr. Schwam will help us understand the latest announcements about exoplanets, and her own research of outer solar system bodies.
