Ann Druyan special on Equal Time for Freethought

Last month, to mark Carl Sagan’s birthday (he would have been 74), the WBAI radio program Equal Time for Freethought broadcast a special interview with the wonderful Ann Druyan (the half-hour interview was originally intended for a fund drive show in September, but not aired in its entirety until now). The main news was NASA’s establishment of a Sagan Fellowship to study exoplanets (planets outside the Solar System), but the wonderful conversation with Druyan ranges from the profound (how to communicate the wonder of science) to the quirky (an extended discussion of what Carl ate for breakfast). (I was surprised to learn of Sagan’s complete abstinence from coffee.)

You can download a recording of the show here.

Thanks to Joel for the heads-up.
