The solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21, is not just a boon for scientists, but also an opportunity for citizens and journalists alike.

In this Update-1 podcast, National Press Club Broadcast/Podcast team member Adam Konowe interviews Irene Klotz, space editor at Aviation Week & Space Technology. Klotz discusses why this solar eclipse has generated such widespread attention, as well as other developments in space science. She also explains what it’s been like to cover the space beat for 25 years on behalf of mainstream and trade media from Aviation Week to UPI.

Update-1 is produced by Mike Hempen. The podcast can be heard here on the Club website or on iTunes, Sticher and Tunein.
