Join me tonight as I interview Douglas E. Cowan, author of Sacred Space: The Quest for Transcendence in Science Fiction Film and Television, published by Baylor University Press.  This is his companion piece to Sacred Terror, his study of religion and horror films.  We'll be talking about how science fiction cinema and television have redefined the quest for transcendence.   We'll of course be discussing the influence of Star Trek, Deep Space Nine, Stargate, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica and War of the Worlds.  And if there's time, we'll delve into his first book, Sacred Terror.

In the second half of the show, internationally renowned urban shaman, eco-ceremonialist, ritual expert, spiritual counselor, award winning writer and popular speaker, Donna Hennes, otherwise known as Mama Donna, will talk to us about women's power.   

"We women are often afraid of our own power.  Afraid to be thought of as pushy or bitchy.  But wise women wield power wisely and the planet is in desperate need of our wisdom.  A Queen is a woman who accepts the responsibility and sovereignty over her own life.  Once we embrace our personal power, it's time to join together with other Queens and take it out into the world to use for the benefit of all.  We have held back long enough.  This is a crucial time to acknowledge and explore our stature and strength and to exert our influence and the power of our moral convictions and authority.  We have the whole world in our hands.
