Beloved science reporter Robert Krulwich does a series of interviews
with scientists at the 92nd Street Y in New York:


"I do a series at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, where I have
conversations and sometimes play around with famous scientists. I
started it about six years ago. ... last year we had Oliver Sacks and
Tom Eisner, he's the Cornell bug guy I mentioned. I asked them, "How
come you guys can see things that everybody else just doesn't notice?"
We had Steven Pinker, Meave Leakey, E. O. Wilson, Neil Tyson, Richard
Dawkins. This coming year we have Jared Diamond. And Diane Ackerman is
coming on with Antonio Damasio, so that one's about consciousness.
She's a poet and he's the world-famous neurologist."


I don't live in New York, but if anyone is in the area, this looks
like a lot of fun. I wonder if they tape them. The one with Malcolm
Gladwell sounds especially interesting.
