Been working on revising my lab’s web site and was looking for some videos of talks I have given online to post there. And I discovered/rediscovered this video of an interview I did for Dr. Kiki’s Science Hour. Here it is:
NOTE – AT LEAST TEMPORARILY REMOVING THE VIDEO DUE TO MALWARE INFECTION OF TWIT.TV SITE
Now I know – this is over a year old. But I just watched the full video. Not so bad I think.
As many of you know, I like to talk. And talk. And talk. But I would like to say that as an interviewer, Dr. Kiki is pretty frigging awesome. Don’t know how she does it. But I am going to post this video on the new lab page and point people to it if they want to know what my lab does and what I am interested in.
But enough about me. I want to thank Dr. Kiki for this great interview by saying a little bit about her. Or, well, her work in science communication.
As some of you may know, I listen to podcasts of TWIS – This Week in Science frequently on my bike rides to work. And I really recommend anyone/everyone out there give it a whirl. It is sort of like Science Friday but it is a bit edgier, a bit funnier, a bit goofier, and a bit sciencier (is that a word?) Dr. Kiki and Justin on it are great and it is so good that I frequently sit outside my building listening to the end of a show if I take the short ride to work which is less than an hour. So if you like Science – you really should check out the TWIS web site and find some way to listen such as what I do by subscribing to their podcasts at iTunes.
And I guess now I will be checking out “Dr. Kiki’s Science Hour” more after rewatching this video. There are many many more shows at twit.tv/kiki. I have not checked out as many as TWIS shows but the ones I have watched are great.
And if you want to follow her more directly check out her Blog: The Bird’s Brain, or her twitter feed (@drkiki) or her Google+ feed.
Very proud that she is a UC Davis alum … and just want to say thanks to her for giving me a video I can share with others that says more about me and my lab than almost anything I have written.
