This is the first ASFO show to have been archived, and was done by dialing in to the conference bridge (x1088) on the SDF VoIP system, also used for aNONradio OpenVoIP. I spent much of the time discussing the growth in energy use since 1700, why the movement toward a high–energy society is a good thing, and why it has relied up to the present on fossil fuels despite their obvious problems. I end with a cliffhanger, so tune in next time!
* John Coltrane – A Love Supreme, Pt. II: Resolution * Cannonball Adderley – Autumn Leaves * Miles Davis – So What * Bill Evans – Never Let Me Go * Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers – Moanin’ * Thelonious Monk – Blue Monk
Never thought I’d have a show on Anonradio, but the dream has finally come true for me.
My show is in a morning news format, the first 10 or 15 minutes dedicated to reading the news and the rest of the 45 minutes to news analysis and topical discussion — and maybe even a bit of music jamming!
Timings are every Wednesday from 8am to 9am UTC. (remember to check your local times!)
Until then, good morning/afternoon/night, and good luck.
If you recall the Eames Office film “Powers of Ten” ― we humans are at the midpoint between the galaxies and the atomic nucleus. It’s a great place to be!

Why would I start a new show, when I have trouble keeping up with the one I already have?
This is a completely different concept, and will be a completely different format (whatever the format ends up being), from Hear Now the Words. About all they have in common is my speaking voice. HNtW is the show in which I read stories written by other people. ASFO is the show in which I talk about what I think are interesting and worthwhile things to know and think about. That is going to involve atomic energy and space travel a great deal. As I see it, those are two defining features of human existence in the present age, which is the age of transition from planetary to cosmic existence. If we fail to think about them, and get them in the correct perspective, we may not make that transition successfully. And that is a thought too hideous, too sorrowful, to bear examination.
