I just found out that the good people of Astronomy Cast are broadcasting the press briefings at this week's meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Long Beach via Ustream. Go here to watch the live press briefings; today's schedule is below, and you can watch the Astronomy Cast LIVE website for the schedule of press briefings later this week. The video and sound quality is quite clear enough to follow what's going on -- Astronomy Cast is getting good at this!
All times are Pacific (GMT-8).
9:30 AM - Exoplanets and Exoplanetary Systems

At that last press briefing will be several characters from the 365 Days of Astronomy staff, talking about our daily podcast. Today's podcast explains the causes of the seasons on Earth and other aspects of the night sky as explained by simple geometry.
