Seth Shostak's Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seth_Shostak

Seth claims to have developed an interest in extraterrestrial life at the tender age of ten, when he first picked up a book about the solar system. This innocent beginning eventually led to a degree in radio astronomy, and now, as Senior Astronomer, Seth is an enthusiastic participant in the Institute’s SETI observing programs.

In addition, Seth is keen on outreach activities: interesting the public – and especially young people – in science in general, and astrobiology in particular. He’s co-authored a college textbook on astrobiology, and has written three trade books on SETI. In addition, he’s published more than 500 popular articles on science -- including regular contributions to the Huffington Post -- gives approximately 50 talks annually, and is the host of the SETI Institute’s weekly science radio show, “Big Picture Science.”
