The Mixtape Interviews

The following is a list of specials where we interview people who have something interesting to say about the Voyager Golden Record.  They may be people who have direct connections to the record.  They may be people with interesting views on the record's contents.  In any case, we hope you enjoy the further discussions with different voices.

INterview 1 - Dr. David Simpson

David Simpson is an eminent geophysicist who, as a graduate student, recorded the Australian earthquake that was included in the Voyager Golden Record's "Sounds of Earth" montage.  David reached out to us and was generous enough to chat about his work and how it ended up being sent into space!

 This is the seismogram that Dr. Simpson plays in the episode.
