I would have gone to the taping no matter who the guest was, but this one did not disappoint: Walter Isaacson, former chair of CNN and editor of Time, now author of Einstein: His Life and Universe. This book is getting some serious attention; I saw the author interviewed on the NBC Nightly News the other week. While physics (and science in general) is not my area of expertise, sadly, I enjoyed hearing anecdotes about this great genius. Josh peppered the conversation heavily with humor, where appropriate. Afterward I asked boyziggy to take a photo; I think we finally managed to get a good one!
Look for this episode to air on KQED Monday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m. It will also be available streaming online and as a podcast (which is how we normally view it).
