Join us at the intersection of science, nature, music and wonder for a very special Planetary Radio Live with the great Peter Mayer. Bill Nye is with host Mat Kaplan on stage in this unique episode, the longest we've ever presented. You'll hear eight of Pete's beautiful songs, including one that will be on his new CD.  Emily Lakdawalla brings some of her favorite images of multiple worlds, and the capacity audience in the Crawford Family Forum competes in Bruce Betts' live space trivia contest.
