Conversations with an Astrophysicist is back, with a very special guest: Emily Petroff. Emily is a PhD candidate at the University of Swinburne and is an expert in the field of the mysterious Fast Radio Bursts. Though astronomers still aren’t sure what they are, they’re learning more and more about them and how to detect them easier.

Today is Earth Day, a celebration of our home planet and a reminder for everyone to try to change behaviors and become more concerned about the sustainability of our planet’s resources.
One of the initiatives for Earth Day was put on by NASA, where people could snap photographs of themselves and share it on social media as a #GlobalSelfie.
Phil Plait returns with Katie and Alan to talk about the research he’s been involved with before becoming our favourite snarky outreach astronomer!
