In each episode of transmission podcast, we question what would happen if we suddenly knew we were no longer alone in the universe – and what it would mean for humanity to become an interstellar civilization.

At 4.22 light years away, Proxima Centauri is the nearest star to our sun.

Orbiting this star is a Proxima b, 1.3 times the mass of Earth with the potential to support life.

Transmission Podcast speculates on the possibility of life on Proxima b and whether civilizations like our own could live there. What if we received their television and radio broadcasts? How would we listen in? Could we translate them? How could we communicate back?
