Broadcast 995 (Special Edition)

Guests: Linda Strine and Wil Simon were the guests for this special Space Show program addressing issues related to space news reporting, science journalism, broadcast and other forms of media/journalism. We began the discussion by defining the different types of media, how they are used, and often how news is filtered through each format. During the program we covered all forms of media, both for general reporting, space, and science. It's an in-depth discussion about how news and facts are presented, distorted, manipulated or glossed over.

Guest: Open Lines with Dr. David Livingston. The first segment of this Open Lines program was not space related as I summarized my experiences on my son's movie set in the Santa Barbara, CA area two weeks ago using a tiger in the movie. During this segment, I discussed what it was like working with a wild animal, how the actors and those on the set were trained to behave with the tiger, what the trainers do, how shots are filmed, and what it's like to work, play, and handle a tiger.
