Science Saturday: Physics Party Cocktails

I must have been living with my head buried in the sand. I am totally addicted to podcasts, but, until I read yesterday's Blog Go the Heads announcement on the Cosmic Variance weblog, I had never even heard of Bloggingheads.tv.

What a fantastic concept! Two side-by-side talking heads having a conversation via video link. And what a great show too: the one of the aforementioned Cosmic Variance's resident (astro)physicists, Sean Carroll, in a 79-minute conversation with science writer George Johnson about string theory, religion, love, the anthropic principle, and old photographic plates. Two highly intelligent people having a highly intelligent conversation about science.

It's the future of television.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
