This week, I embark on a new experiment and respond to three "advice column" questions from the Future Fossils listening audience:

• How do I know if aliens would like my music?

• How do I talk to my five-year-old about death?

• How do I be creative without training or experience?

This was a lot of fun and I'll definitely do this again. Enjoy, and thanks for listening!
