Author Rebecca Boyle joins Taya Jae to talk about her new book, Our Moon: How Earth's Celestial Companion Transformed the Planet, Guided Evolution, and Made Us Who We Are. Taya and Rebecca discuss how the moon has shaped our daily rhythms, how science fiction informed space exploration and some important things to consider as our relationship with the moon evolves.

The first time Taya was on the radio was a KVNF pledge drive promo recorded in 1998, she was 5. It went something like this, “I like KVNF because it’s fun to listen to music” she goes on to say, “music is like a dream”.
