About The Show

Good Ship Earth is an exploration into how we will build a better future so we and our children will have a future. We will learn from experts on how we can improve our countries systems; from the economy, energy, food production, social justice, education and more.

Mike Selig joined the KXRW team near the beginning, well before we started broadcasting. He helped move our 700 pound transmitter cabinet into place and knew that while the tower climber was installing KXRW’s antenna our first broadcast date grew near. The challenge – coming up with a name for his first show. Selig’s first show on KXRW was Voices from the Community. As of February 2021, VFTC is archived as Selig sets off on his next show iteration called: Good Ship Earth.
