Professional reviews

"Narrating this collection of writings from the late astronomer and media darling, Dion Graham uses an impressive array of tonal patterns and phrasing tools to capture the meaning and wonder in Carl Sagan's poetic writing. Graham's fluid and nuanced performance shines an admiring light on Sagan's reverence for science and gift for teaching. The writings sampled here are from the late 1970s, but Sagan's curiosity was timeless and extended to many of the questions we have today about astrophysics, artificial intelligence, extraterrestrial beings, and the future of our planet. His talent for stirring curiosity in others set a high bar for celebrity science teachers to follow and, with the help of Graham's excellent performance of these writings, will continue to inspire new science enthusiasts.
