Hey, junkie! You just can't get enough science, can you? The National Science Foundation has your fix. It's free, it's 24 x 7, and it's as close as your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Planetary Society has a selfish interest in the NSF's new Science360 Radio. Our Planetary Radio series is in the lineup of more than 100 shows that are streamed by the service. Every discipline is represented. There's no program schedule yet, so you never know what you're going to hear. Sources include the BBC, Scientific American, NASA and NPR, so you really can't go far wrong. Your favorite science podcast or radio show (after PlanRad, of course) is probably there. Mine are, but I've also discovered great shows I'd never heard of.

The iPhone app seems to work well. Please tell us about your success with the Android
ersion. You can also download a Science360 Radio player widget for your own site.

Our boss, Planetary Society Executive Director Bill Nye, says, "Turn it up loud! I am pleased indeed that Planetary Radio is now part of the lineup on Science360 Radio and The Knowledge Network. Let's share the passion, beauty and joy of science." Good advice.
