THE NELLY BOUM SHOW. Episode 6 on ‘Nighttime’ going live on 27th December 12-2 pm GMT on worldwide fm here, and listen to it here!
 
A monthly show to discover change-makers activating systems from within. With a focus on north African and caucasian music and experts (but also showcasing international talents), the Nelly Boum Show is a series of inspirational, quirky and funny interviews- and brilliant music-specifically tailored for content creators and independent thinkers and makers of new worlds. Every month, the Nelly Boum Show unravels a theme and explores it in a multiverse of possible new futures- we listen and discuss the economy, politics, and other systems as we know it through music. Along the way, interviewees share their methods, and models and how they got to do what they are doing. Led by the founder of the University of the Underground, boxer and SETI (Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute, and NASA International Space orchestra director Nelly Ben Hayoun-Stépanian; the show is a plethora of unique talents and pluralistic thinkers.

This month we discuss all things Nighttime!

Did you know that Earth’s Moon is in fact only a grey disc in the sky with cratering invisible to the naked eye? That 12% of people dream entirely in black and white? That communities and counterculture self-organized and build new politics at night? That the far side of the moon has never seen planet Earth and therefore it is very quiet? That silence is the key to understanding any expeditions? That we are not alone and we can see and connect with the universe at night?….!!! Meet the most incredible humans on this planet and get answers and facts straight from them as they all share their unique experiences.
