Interview with British science writer Marcus Chown

I recently had the fantastic opportunity to interview British science writer Marcus Chown on the blogging "talk show" Bloggingheads.tv. The topic was his new book "The Matchbox that Ate a Forty-Ton Truck." As I am a long-time fan of his writings in New Scientist, and really enjoyed his book, it was a wonderful experience getting a chance to chat with him. He seems very down-to-earth, and has a gift for explaining difficult topics in a very visual, tangible manner. Marcus's story about physicist Richard Feynman's letter to his mother is priceless. It is toward the end of the interview. Here is a link to the video chat: Interview with Marcus Chown on Bloggingheads.tv
