When I was in Vancouver a few weeks ago, I did a taped interview for Science Update Radio of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The podcast is now online and can be heard here. (Look on the left menu: it’s the March 8 segment, “Science for Society.”)
Interesting to see what one sentence they pulled out from my 15 minute interview for the short broadcast! Of course I would have liked it if William Whewell’s name had made it in there (also “the philosophical breakfast club,” referred to only as a “group of scientists in the 19th century”) but at least Francis Bacon was name-checked! And it’s great to have a little historical segment sandwiched in between those on cutting-edge research in scientific fields. Thanks to Susanne Bard and her colleagues at Science Update Radio!
