An Animated Carl Sagan Talks with Studs Terkel About Finding Extraterrestrial Life (1985)

This week, Blank on Blank wraps up its series "The Experimenters," with an episode animating a conversation between Carl Sagan and Studs Terkel--two figures we've highlighted on our site many times before. But never have we brought them together. So here they are.

Recorded in October, 1985, as part of Terkel's long-running Chicago radio show (find an archive of complete episodes here), the conversation touched on some the big questions you might expect: the compatibility between science and religion; the probability we'll encounter extraterrestrials if given enough time; and more. You can hear more outtakes from their conversation here:
