Focus, or Focus 580, was WILL Radio's flagship talk program from 1981 until 2014. David Inge was the host from 1981 until his retirement in 2012. Always engaging, the program acted as a resource for citizens to directly question politicians and candidates as well as keep up on the arts, science, health, and even the latest from well-known novelists.
The Focus archive below offers thousands of great interviews and serves as a time capsule and a great resource for researchers and those just curious about how influential people spoke of important topics as they were happening.
Where do planetary science and philosophy intersect? In one fascinating field: the search for extraterrestrial life. Today on Focus, David Grinspoon speculates about the possibility of life on other planets and in other solar systems, how intelligent life may evolve both on our own planet and in the rest of the universe, and what the philosophical implications of these future discoveries may be.
