Last Show Recap

In the first half, analyst Craig Hulet offered commentary on current events, terrorism, and world conflicts. "It looks to me unbelievably clear that money is going to buy the presidency, and Jeb Bush will be the next president," he declared.

In the latter half, broadcast and print journalist Gary Grossman discussed his research into the chasm between deep time (the scientific estimate that Earth is 4.6 billion years old) and a young Earth (the claim that the planet is only 7-8,000 years old put forth by some religious groups), which serves as the backdrop for his new novel.

Space Patrol

Space Patrol

In the second hour, author Jean-Noel Bassior, talked about her book Space Patrol(1), which chronicles the early sci-fi TV series. Space Patrol was a live "space opera" broadcast by a local Los Angeles TV station in 1950. The 15-minute daily serial was eventually picked up by ABC and turned into a weekend half-hour show. Each episode viewers were treated to another adventure of Commander Buzz Corey and the crew of the spaceship Terra, as they fought for interplanetary justice in the 30th century.
Bassior admitted a "psychic experience" led her to track down the Space Patrol cast, and credits Lyn Osborn's (Cadet Happy) spirit for providing the motivation to write the book. Bassior said the heroism of the show's characters inspired her as a youth and taught her to be compassionate.
