Voyager's Golden Records: Galactic Representative of the Human Race
Show Notes

What if you were asked to compile all relevant cultural examples of humanity and then put it in a sort of satellite-time-capsule and then shoot it off into the far regions of space?

What images, sounds, and media would you pick and why? Furthermore, how would those choices be interpreted by intelligent extraterrestrial life?

These were the questions that faced Carl Sagan and his associates in the 1970s.
