Program Title: Beam Me Up
Description: Late night talk radio: wild speculation, unbelievable conspiracy theories, out-of-this-world storytelling. Where does this drive for outlandish alternate explanations come from? Beam Me Up first asks “are UFOs real?” before realizing that the more interesting question is : “Why do we care so much?”

Liz McArthur finds a strange, nostalgic comfort in the oft-overlooked programming from the margins, especially Coast to Coast AM: her grandmother would records particularly interesting episodes on cassette, and play them back for the grandchildren at every opportunity. She currently lives on Vancouver Island, where she co-produces the podcast Sleepy City.
