Microbial Life:
Dr. Bill Miller , a physician in academic and private practice for over 30 years, combines his unique observations about patterns of disease from medicine with current scientific discoveries in many other fields. In the first half, he discussed how the self is composed of a vast interdependent network of cells and microbial ecologies. "Our actual narrative is the unseen world," and the cells that make up an individual are outnumbered 10-to-1 by "microbial life that lives in us, on us, with us-- so much a part of us that we almost live in an illusion of being a singularity, but we really are a vast constellation of life all put together so seamlessly that it fools us into thinking we are just by ourselves," he revealed.

There may be around 100 trillion microbes in the human gut and they are absolutely essential for our well-being-- without them the immune and metabolic systems would break down, he reported. While trying to shield themselves and their children from dirt and disease, people may be inadvertently causing an imbalance in their exposure to microbial companions that are needed for optimal health, he explained (more in this blog post ). Dr. Miller also commented on vaccines, calling them one of the greatest advances in human history, saving hundreds of millions of people from the scourge of deadly pathogens. While they do have some risk, their overall advantages far outweigh any hazards, he asserted.

Space News:

In the latter half, space historian and C2C Science Advisor Robert Zimmerman provided updates on various space missions and news, as well as technological developments. The New Horizons probe has a new target after Pluto, he announced, a small Kuiper Belt object (KBO) known as 2014 MU69 that orbits almost a billion miles past Pluto. Regarding recent photos of the Martian surface in which people say they see various anomalous objects such as spaceships, he believes this is wishful thinking on their parts. The Red Planet is actually a very barren place that at most has struggling microbial life, he remarked.

In recent space news, the first Danish astronaut along with two other astronauts has just launched on a Soyuz spacecraft for a mission on the International Space Station, while a Japanese supply craft is transporting various whiskey samples to the ISS, to test how the alcohol ages in a weightless environment. Zimmerman also spoke about NASA's planned reconnaissance mission in the 2020s to investigate Jupiter's moon Europa, which has a mysterious red material that seeps out on its surface.
Blast from the Past:

This week our two free audio clips are from a decade ago-- September 2005, when documentary film maker and author, Jon Ronson spoke about his investigation into the US military's strange experiments with the paranormal, and futurist Gordon-Michael Scallion discussed his visions of upcoming Earth changes. Post-Katrina, the whole planet is heating up and going through a "metamorphosis" that is triggered by magnetic shifts and movements in the Earth's core, he said.

Today in Strangeness:

On today's date in 1666, the Great Fire of London broke out, a major conflagration that burned for three days. When it was over, 400 acres of the city had been charred, and thousands of homes and buildings were destroyed.

Tonight's Show, Wednesday, September 2nd:

In the first half, former national space policy advisor to the White House and Congress as well as President of the Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC), John L. Casey , will discuss his discovery of a solar cycle that is now reversing from its global warming phase to that of dangerous global cooling for the next thirty years or more. In the latter half, founder of the Traditional Church of Satan, Reverend Robert Fraize, will discuss his intentions to serve all freethinking Satanists through his organization, as well as the history of how Satan has gathered a following of worshipers.
