A few weeks ago I had a chat that happened to be an interview with Gil Roth for his Virtual Memories Show.
Curious about the origins of my Pathology Laffs series? How about some opinions on how people learn, or strategies for making science funny? Maybe you're curious about my past dance career. Follow this link to Virtual Memories, click on my interview, and brace yourself for an hour of fun! (The first 12 minutes are an interview with writer Paul Di Filippo) My Interview (#154) starts at minute 12:45 on the download.
I thought it might be fun to post some images and links to accompany my conversation with Gil. Here's your program!
