Among the radio transmissions winging its way to other galaxies from Earth is “Are We Alone,” a program hosted by Seth Shostak of the SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Life) Project. Recent topics include “The Emergence of Intelligence,” “Life’s Unfriendliest Element,” and “Releasing the Inner You.” Broadcast on a number of public radio stations, “Are We Alone” is also available on iTunes and in pulsar-free zones of the Andromeda galaxy.

Reviewing Shostak’s new book Confessions of An Alien Hunter, Paul DiFilippo writes, “At the core of SETI is something as numinous as the Grail, which only faith has yet made conceivable.” SETI: it’s a HILOBROW religion for our time!
