60. Where Are Our Alien Friends? The Fermi Paradox with Josiah Jenkins

EAliens. What do you think? Are they out there? The Fermi Paradox raises a very puzzling belief that there should be and yet we have no evidence. The Fermi Paradox was named after physicist Enrico Fermi and he theorizes that based on all the billions of stars in the galaxy, trillions in the universe, there must exist planets similar to Earth that contain life and yet we have no proof there is. All we have heard out there is silence. So does this silence mean we’re all alone? Or have Earthlings and other alien species not evolved enough to possess the ability to properly communicate with each other? Guest Josiah Jenkins (The 8 Dollar Game Show podcast) and Cassi Jerkins discuss the many different theories that explore the Fermi Paradox. Enjoy!
