Transmission is a distributed mixed reality podcast and performance series premiering in Edinburgh in 2017. This companion Podcast speculates on the possibility of life on Proxima b - the closest planet outside of our solar system that has the potential to support life - and whether civilizations like our own could live there. What if we received their television and radio broadcasts? How would we listen in? Could we translate them? How could we communicate back?
Hosted by Cecilia Lynn Jacobs
Produced by Ian Garrett and Kate Ladenheim

#11 - METI International (2 of 2)
On March 22, 2017, Transmission Podcast was invited to attend a day long conference at Muséum National D'Histoire Naturelle in Paris about the question “What is Life,” hosted by METI International. Many of our listeners will be familiar with SETI, or Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. METI, is Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence. It is similarly focused on research and discussion related to possible extraterrestrial life, but considers also what we would say and why we’d say it to aliens. While there we interviewed Trustees of METI International and members of their Advisory Council. We asked them our questions, and why they feel METI’s work, though sometimes controversial, is important.
