Anybody out there?

Show #95 on April 19, 2016…In which Mr. Bear talks with author Anthony Michael Morena about his beautiful book from Rose Metal Press, “The Voyager Record: A Transmission.” A poetic mixtape to the universe, the book reflects on Carl Sagan and his team’s attempt in 1977 to summarize all of humanity on one record containing images, music, and greetings from around the world. What does it mean to be human? What do we know? How can we communicate? Is there life out there? Can any representation of the world as we know it be a fair representation if it doesn't include stuffed animals? Join the voyage and prepare to have your head explode.
