Very annoying, sing-song voice of the narrator.

Yes. John Michael Godier has a very odd way to speak:) I have seen some other youtube clips him speaking. But apart from that he is interesting and letting other scientists talk.

He has an atmospheric voice that gives his channel a special aura (something I personally prefer in Twilight Zone or X-Files contexts : )

Another voice which makes me cringe even more is Anton Petrov's, but he will be forgiven as English is obviously not his first language, and he covers very competently the various topics he chooses to discuss.

But regarding the word hiberation on the front page, just don't ask me about it.

Right-on !!. My own musings about the probability of occurrence of conditions essential for sentient life put my lower limit at perhaps five such civilizations that would be able to be heard if the time/space numbers were right.
Good to hear that astronomers are no longer predicting "billions and billions". Rest in Peace Carl Sagan

Not too far from my "here and now as an intermittently flashing light in a chrstmas tree" prediction, which is one ^^

As you probably suspected he never said that, but his last book did discuss it. In the Billions department, Carl Sagan would have been dethroned since then, anyway...

Wiggo, call me delusional but I happen to agree with Bones' statement that

"It's hiberating, it not hibernating, Jim!"
While contributing to Covid-19 projects, in a way of speaking I'm still here waiting for (SETI-related) work, too (occasionally pulling some legs in the process ^^)

A SETI Search of 10 Million Star Systems
https://www.centauri-dreams.org/2020/09/09/a-seti-search-of-10-million-star-systems/

The coming SKA (...) could be available later in this decade, would extend the SETI search into billions of star systems, and would be capable of detecting what Tingay calls “Earth-like radio signals” from relatively nearby planetary systems leakage radiation as opposed to directed signals designed to be interstellar.
