Are We Alone: Tilt!

Regular readers know I do a short segment with Seth Shostak and Molly Bentley on the SETI Institute's radio show "Are We Alone". The segment, called "Brains on Vacation", is a slightly snarky view of the some science-bending weirdness we've seen in the news.

This month, I took on the idea that the Earth secretly tilted an extra 24 degrees while you were sleeping last December. I wrote about this on the blog, but now you can here me talk about it in MP3 format or in WMA.

If you like the show, you can befriend it on MySpace, too.
