BSG Season 2 CD Release Party
I was lucky to be one of the very few fans that got tickets to Sunday nights Official Battlestar Galactica: Season Two Soundtrack Album Release Show in Los Angeles.

Just noticed Apple is now carrying an audiobook version of the new Jeffrey Carver novelization of the Battlestar miniseries, if you'd like to relive the original via iPod. Check it out here.
Resurrection Ship Podcast available
