In this episode of Welcome To The Party Pal, host Michael Shields, along with the help of podcaster (Brokedown Podcast / The Helping Friendly Podcast) and musician Jonathan Hart, explores the recently-released micro-documentary John Was Trying To Contact Aliens. Directed by Matthew Killip and featuring electronic whiz John Shepherd, the documentary tells the story of a man who tried to contact aliens by broadcasting music into space for over 30 years utilizing state-of-the-art broadcasting equipment. While John’s quest to communicate with extraterrestrial life fails in its goal, John ends up making a significant and long-lasting connection nonetheless. In this episode Michael and Jonathan discuss how exceptional of a hobby it is to be E.T.’s personal DJ, the endearing spirit of John Sheppard, the deeply-affecting story of human loneliness and human connection at the heart of the film, and much more.
