FROM THIS EPISODE

The desert means different things to different people. It can be a magical, meditative place. It can also be a place of loneliness - profound solitude amidst the nothingness.

But for a couple thousand people once a year, Joshua Tree is a place of togetherness. It's where they come to find other people like them -- people who believe that we're not alone in this universe. They're there for a yearly conference, called Contact in the Desert. Nick White and David Weinberg went to the conference last year, and this week, that's where we're spending the whole show.

The story was produced by David Weinberg and Nick White.
