We are your cultural affairs radio magazine produced by the First Voice
Media Action Program. Tonights host Shora Zamani: “Tonight we’ve got some out of this world treats for you. And I mean literary “out of this world”. In the next hour I encourage you to put aside everyday worries and hurries and look up to the stars and wonder: is there anybody out there? We are lucky in the Bay Area to have a nonprofit organization, called the SETI institute. SETI stands for Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. Their mission is to do all the meticulous scientific research it takes to relieve us of our existential agony of wondering: are we alone in the cosmos? Our first guest, Senior Astronomer Dr. Seth Shostak is a selfdescribed alien hunter. He will take us beyond hollywood movie cliches and provide an inside look into what he and and his colleagues are doing to search for communication from outer space. Later we’ll also hear from Dr. Douglas Vakoch who’s in charge of composing messages to aliens in case they get in touch…”
