Fraser Lewis, PhD student at the Open University, and support astronomer for the Faulkes Telescope Project was recently lucky enough to be asked to take part in a ' Naked Astronomer' podcast. Talking about the Faulkes Telescope Project in the UK, Fraser explained the background of the project, what schools use the telescopes for, and plans for the future.

The Naked Astronomer podcasts are produced by 'The Naked Scientists', a group of media-savvy physicists and researchers from Cambridge Univeristy who use radio, live lectures and the internet to make science more accessible to the general public by 'stripping it down to its bare essentials'!

The Naked Scientists website can be found here, with the podcast containing Fraser's naked input here. And don't worry, there isn't a picture in sight!
