An interesting interview


This week on Thursday from 3:00 to 4:00 PDT (GMT-7) I will be interviewing two professors on my radio show. Topics to be discussed will include amateur chemistry, and its role in inspiring interest, societal issues regarding both amateur and professional chemistry, the steps to becoming a professor, and chemical education.

If you want to tune in, feel free to go to http://ksdt.ucsd.edu/ and listen in.

You might also be interested to know that we'll have a relatively well-known SM member on the show as well. I'm keeping it a secret, though, as to who it is.




At the end of the day, simulating atoms doesn't beat working with the real things...

If it's Me, you should have said, as i'm having my hair done on Thursday.

It's only 1 hair though, so shouldn't take long.

Shampoo and conditioner in-one for you then.

To be fair, it's a Removal Job.

It went all funny after the S2Cl2 affair and has a weird attraction to metals as well.

That's the thing with amateur chemistry: you end up not recognising yourself in the mirror after a while.

So it wasn't me ?

How very dare you !

Gutted. I will cry for a week, at least.

Perhaps a beer will help soothe the pain.

That was fun. Sorry I had to bail early.

I agree, that was fun. Only downside is I have to get up pretty early to catch it. ;)

Thanks for coming! Turns out I had 3 guests on the show instead - TheAustralianScientist picked up where DraconicAcid left off.

I wouldn't mind a critique.

Sorry I missed it brother.

Is there a recorded version somewhere?

Critique :-

A bit more preparation and rehearsal would remove some nervousness, which mostly showed through as lots of 'erms' and a little bit too much of the interviewer talking.

Entertaining, good delivery and interesting - it was really very good !
