Dr. David Livingston is the founder and host of The Space Show®, the nation’s only talk radio show focusing on increasing space commerce, developing space tourism, and facilitating our move to a space-faring economy and culture. The Space Show® is broadcast multiple times per week on radio and the internet. Past show archives, listening information, and coming events can be found at www.thespaceshow.com. The Space Show is fully licensed to the newly formed One Giant Leap Foundation (OGLF) which Dr. Livingston started to promote his special type of space education. OGLF is a 501(C)3 public benefit tax exempt foundation. In addition, Dr. Livingston is an adjunct professor at the University of North Dakota Graduate School of Space Studies, both on campus and in their distant learning program, specializing in space commerce economics, ethics, and management classes. He has also served as an adjunct professor in the Graduate School of Business at Golden Gate University teaching Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management and he has guest lectured at other university programs including Stanford University and Sonoma State University. He earned his BA from the University of Arizona, his MBA in International Business Management from Golden Gate University in San Francisco, and his Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) also at Golden Gate University. His doctoral dissertation was titled Outer Space Commerce: Its History and Prospects. Livingston has spoken at or had his papers presented at various international space conferences, including Space and Robotics 98, 2000, and 2002, the Mars Society conferences of 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002, 2003, and 2005, the Lunar Development Conference 2000 and 2001, the IAA 2000, the Cato Institute in March 2001, and the National Space Society Conference in May 2002, the World Space Conference in Houston in 2000, Space Access 2005, Space Exploration 2005, AIAA in Long Beach in 2005, ATWG NASA Ames in October 2005, the International Conference of Nanotechnology in San Francisco in November 2005, and more. His lecture topics include venture capital for space investments, RLVs and space tourism, effective business, strategic and assumption planning, along with developing the solutions to the barriers to space enterprise, talking to the public about space, tracing the dollars spent on space through the economy, business ethics and corporate responsibility for off-Earth business ventures and New Space Industries, and observations about space development based on his radio show experience. Dr. Livingston has written a Code of Ethics for Off-Earth Commerce. His Code of Ethics for Off-Earth Businesses has been widely published and revised. Dr. Livingston has appeared as a guest with both Art Bell and George Noory on the Coast to Coast radio program discussing space commerce and tourism, Red FM in Cork, Ireland discussing space tourism and providing regular space news updates when called upon, and as a guest on other national talk shows, both on the radio and the internet. Dr. Livingston is also a contributing author to the newly published book, Beyond Earth: The Future of Humans In Space. His chapter, “Making Space A Popular Goal,” documents how to move forward to a space-faring culture based on nearly five years of hosting The Space Show. He is also providing a chapter on commercial space development and business ethics to a new book on the subject funded by NSF. Dr. Livingston is also part of a new group with Barbara Marx Hubbard, Howard Bloom and others to raise the consciousness of people regarding the value and importance of space settlement and development for humanity. When not teaching, occupied, or working with space matters, Livingston is a business consultant, financial advisor, and strategic planner. For more than twenty-five years, he has worked in oil and gas exploration, real estate development sales, the finance and security industry as well as in marketing and direct advertising sales.
