PODCASTS about the SOLSTICES & EQUINOXES

by Judith Young, Ph.D.

Sunwheel in Winter


PODCASTS (recorded in 2009 & 2010):

The following podcasts, each ~9-10 minutes in length, describe the general characteristics of the Solstices and Equinoxes, and the differences as seen from a variety of locations around the globe. Although I recorded them in 2009 and 2010, the information they contain pertains to all Solstices and Equinoxes. The only aspects of these recordings that are specific to 2009 and 2010 are the times of each Solstice and Equinox. Otherwise, the information they contain pertains to the current year as well.
