Podcast of the Week: The Message

The Message is a new podcast following the weekly reports and interviews from Nicky Tomalin, who is covering the decoding of a message from outer space received 70 years ago. That's the iTunes description. So if you're looking for grammatically correct, concise-thinking, there you have it.
