Scientists Discover First Talk Radio Show
Tsodilo Hills, Botswana

"The scientists found a secret chamber behind the [70,000 year old] python carving. Worn areas indicate that it has been used over the years."

"'The shaman . . . could have kept himself hidden in that secret chamber,' Coulson explained. 'He would have had a good view of the inside of the cave while remaining hidden himself. When he spoke from his hiding place, it could have seemed as if the voice came from the snake itself. The shaman would have been able to control everything. It was perfect.'"

"[He] could also have made himself disappear from the chamber by crawling out onto the hillside through a small shaft, the scientists found."
