While driving home after a week away on work I was lucky enough to hear an interview with Rod Stubbings (legend of cataclysmic variables observation!), broadcast on ABC regional radio yesterday. ABC is the national broadcaster in Australia. It was really interesting to hear about his journey in astronomy which led to his cataclysmic variables observing, and in his own words. The interview was pitched for general interest and did not fail on that score, well done Rod. After the interview, the announcer played Starman by David Bowie, dedicated to Rod! Nice to hear variable star observing getting a plug in 'mainstream' media.
