Dec 20, 2006, was Carl Sagan Day, the 10th anniversary of the death of one of history’s great scientists and communicators. He touched hundreds of millions of people with his work, his books and his TV series “Cosmos”. Joel Schlosberg organised the Sagan Blogathon and many people wrote about the impact Sagan had on their lives. On this podcast my co-host Hugo Sharp and I discuss Sagan’s life, work and read out some of the blog posts, from his widow, his son and bloggers whose lives he touched.

A great email debate he had with a christian. Well worth reading each of the emails.
