Today’s eclectic coverage of TV programs broadcast and streamed on the state of affairs on our pale blue planet, signaling our presence to other possible civilizations in the Milky Way.

“FM signals and those of broadcast television travel out to space at the speed of light. Any eavesdropping alien civilization will know all about our TV programs (probably a bad thing), will hear all our FM music (probably a good thing), and know nothing of the politics of AM talk-show hosts (probably a safe thing).” –Neil deGrasse Tyson, Death By Black Hole, 2006
