Last Show Recap

A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: key properties of the universe have just the right values to make life possible. Most scientists prefer to explain away this uniqueness, insisting that a number of unseen universes must therefore exist, each randomly different. Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch joined George Knapp in the first half of the show to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligent consciousness.

In the second half of the program, veteran journalist Chris Taylor talked about how the Star Wars franchise has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics, and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike.

Special Guest

Biography:

Liz McIntyre is a consumer privacy expert and author of the soon-to-be-released book Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track your Every Move with RFID. In this book, McIntyre and co-author Katherine Albrecht expose how organizations like Procter & Gamble, Gillette, Wal-Mart, and even the U.S. Postal Service plan to use tiny computer chips smaller than a grain of sand to track everyday objects and even people, keeping tabs on everything you own and everywhere you go.

McIntyre regularly researches and writes about the financial, privacy, and civil liberties impacts that technologies like RFID will have on consumers. She serves as the Communications Director for CASPIAN (Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering), an organization that advocates free-market, consumer-based solutions to the problem of retail privacy invasion. In this role, she has been the master strategist for many of the organization's most successful media campaigns.

McIntyre is also known for her lively, accessible treatment of consumer issues as the MoneyMom, a syndicated family money writer and columnist. McIntyre brings meticulous research skills and a keen investigative eye to her reporting on corporate policy-making and bureaucratic misdeeds.
