Host Paul Carr welcomes veteran panelists Buck Field, James Garrison, Mike Bohler, Ciro Villa and Patrick Festa to talk about the first half year of the podcast, where it's been, what the highlights were, and where it's going. Of course, this spins completely out of control into unrelated topics, like how much we should respect conspiracy theorists.
Each of our 19 panelists is thanked individually, and there is a plea for volunteers to co-produce and occasionally host the show. If interested, please e-mail us unseenpodcast - at - gee-mail or comment on the blog post.

Host Paul Carr welcomes Adam "Synergy" Smith, Nick Nielsen, Mateusz Macias, and James Garrison to the panel. The team talks about some recent developments in exoplanets science and the future of planet hunting. Some planets about M-dwarf stars may in fact be habitable. Would creatures evolving on the dark side of a habitable M-dwarf planet be able to develop technology? How long will itbe until we replace the artist's concepts with actual images of Earth-like exoworlds? Will telescopes on the lunar farside help?
In this episode we are trying a new protocol to keep from talking over each other. This led to one awkward pause at 37 minutes, but I think it was worth it. We'll keep refining this.
Erratum: This is not the Wow! Signal, but we hope tohave some fresh content from the Wow! Signal very soon to talk about.

First, we talk about the recent finding of the GHAT team from their mining of the WISE survey,loooking for galaxies with anomalously mid infrared emission, indicating that most of the free energy in the galaxy was being harvested. This has been in the press a lot lately, and easily misinterpreted. What is a Kardashev level III civlization, and how would we know it?
