I've been doing the Chill Room for ages now, leading up to just this moment. This week I am making something long form. Long enough to have tendrills connecting wave to point. Long enough and full enough that you might forget where you are. Long enough and wide enough and deep enough to get lost.
Produced and engineered by dj bennett (

Special thanks to my teachers, from the classrooms of Illinois to the unbounded sky. Thanks to my listeners, I count on you folks. Thanks to Carl Sagan,, ubuweb. The Cary Grant material comes from "Destination Subconscious: Cary Grant and LSD" by Kliph Nesteroff, from WFMU's Beware of the Blog. Additional thanks to WFMU! Comments requested.

160k, 2 hours 45 minutes, indulge yourself, because YOU are the Cosmos

Yet I've had tech problems, blown out recordings, shorts in audio circuits, all just in trying to put this program together. But that makes its goal even greater. It never loses its focus and dangles more than one reality before us, glowing for all of us to benefit. This one was meant to be. You were meant to hear this. This is a really hot, very cool, and extremely Chill show. Tell your friends about it, please.

"It will not be we who reach Alpha Centauri and the other nearby stars. It will be a species very like us, but with more of our strengths and fewer of our weaknesses. More confident, far seeing, capable and prudent. For all our failings, despite our limitations and fallibilities, we humans are capable of greatness." - Carl Sagan
