On the radio tonight

Scroll down to read this post.
For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

I will be doing another full appearance tonight on The Space Show with David Livingston, beginning at 7 pm (Pacific).

As always it should be fun. Please feel free to call in with questions and comments. I would especially like it if you disagree with me and call in, as you might teach me something.

    Well, I am either too tired or too stupid to find the “listen live” button… 5 am here… 8 pm there, and much as I try, I can’t figure it out….
    I was looking forward to saying hello…

  • Lee S: I was disappointed that you didn’t chime in as promised. Oh well, there will be other chances.

    Sorry Bob…. I am disappointed also, it would have been nice to say hello, and I had several questions for you regarding the upcoming Mars rover missions.
    It’s been a while since I listened live to The Space Show, and IIRC the ” listen live ” button was front and center during broadcast’s… It was no where to be found on either of my mobile devices ( my main “computing” devices… My laptop’s have been claimed by the kids!!)
    I will drop Dr Livingston a mail about the problem.
    The 2 bright points from this are I have some good listening when I download the archive, and I gained 2 hours flexitime from getting into work VERY early!!
