STARBORN How the Stars Made Us (and Who We Would Be Without Them)

by | Read by George Weightman

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Astrophysicist and data scientist Roberto Trotta and narrator George Weightman form the perfect team for guiding listeners on this wondrous journey through humanity's age-old relationship with the stars and night sky. The audiobook combines Trotta's lyrical prose and thoughtful scholarship with Weightman's engaging performance. Discussions of humanity's scientific understanding of space and time, as well as the development of mythologies and spirituality, are also explored through a series of imaginative interludes, titled "Caligo Tales," featuring an emergent society on a cloud-dense world. Weightman blends a storyteller's ear for tone and pacing with a documentarian's precision. This absorbing production shares the innumerable ways that the sciences, humanities, faith traditions, and more are inextricably connected with our existence.
