    Your shows are getting more and more boring. No news at all? You never talk Nasa, or the new budget, nothing about congress fight against obamas space plan. NOTHING about Obamas visit to KSC in 3 days. These are BIG news, and you dont even mention them. Wake up and start covering the REALLY important stuff as well and me and others will keep watching. Otherwise you will lose viewers. and lots of them.

    @Backlight22 We have covered the FY2011 plan to death. There’s not a whole lot of new info there. The weekly live shows are not designed to be news shows anymore but rather interview. No need for news shows to be live, that’s what the shorter daily shows are for. And the daily shows did indeed cover that. We also have a lot more info over at the site that you won’t get on YouTube as well as live mission coverage. If you only watch weekly shows on-demand, then you’re missing a LOT of content!

    @spacevidcast
    A pity. I thought it was so much more enjoyable when your shows were more diverse. One looong interview and nothing else just doesnt cut it for me.
    Hope you at least dedicate a large portion of a show to covering the Obama visit to KSC.

    @Backlight22 We’re trying to get Jason down there to attend the speech in person and report back on the Spacevidcast site, but getting him in is proving to be difficult. We will certainly have something as this is the future of NASA on the line.

    people forget that planet earth is actually planet ocean (70 percent water!)…we should we sending astronaut missions under jupiters moon europa ice down to explore its ocean…not rotting in low warth orbit in a non-spinning zero-g space station iss…or cancelling moon missions! (i did not vote for president pigmy!)

    Thank you God that so many people are against Korean plastic surgery! I am white and as a kid I got ~switched~ with a Korean couple. They tried to pass me off as Korean, hahaha! Yeah right. Of course no Korean believed them. But outside of Korea, many people don’t know the truth. Now I am confident and assertive enough to stop the deception and get help!

    Currently I am blocking Koreans trying to terrorize me for exposing their plastic surgery bleaching matrix. Please help me. God bless you. ^.^
